Nicki Minaj Puts a Spin on DaBaby’s ‘Suge’: Listen
Nicki Minaj dropped by Los Angeles radio station Power106 on Friday afternoon (July 19) for a Queen Radio takeover, and she gave listeners an exclusive treat.
While chatting with DJ Carisma, the rapper premiered her remix of DaBaby’s “Suge.” Before unveiling her verse, Minaj showered the 27-year-old North Carolina native for his ability to “spit bars.”
“I just think she’s super dope,” she revealed. “Suge” reached No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100, No. 3 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, and No. 2 on Hot Rap Songs. It has generated 394 million on-demand audio and video streams in the U.S., through July 11, according to Nielsen Music. His album, Baby on Baby, peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard 200, No. 3 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and No. 2 on Top Rap Albums. The set has earned 473,000 equivalent album units.
Minaj also answered a couple fan questions about her upcoming album, including a discussion about the title. “Y’all know damn well I’m not telling you the album name,” she laughed.
“I have two ideas but thinking of going back to ‘pink’ for old times sake,” referring to her former trend of including the color in her titles, including 2010’s breakout Pink Friday and 2014’s Pinkprint. “I have a name that doesn’t have ‘pink’ in it.”
