The song, co-written by Burna Boy and Yeti Beats, has 17 million views on Burna Boy’s official YouTube account but thousands and thousands elsewhere and on TikTok, marking it one among Burna’s infectious Afrobeat tracks. On Wednesday evening, Nicki Minaj seemingly teased a verse on the track. While on Instagram Live, Minaj smiled as she played the verse several times.
“Me a touch dat but mi never burn a boy, mi nuh f**ky f**ky first mi haffi learn a boy,” Minaj is heard singing within the verse. “Y’all good? Y’all f**king with it? Alright, we’ll come back and clean it up,” Minaj asked someone within the background.
Minaj’s first Afrobeat song collaboration was Davido’s “Holy Ground,” which was released three years ago. A lot of Minaj’s fans also reacted to the possible remix, marking her first Afrobeat collaboration in years.
“She all the time comeback wit something different this is the reason she is going to never be erased.. soon yall could have this on yall story going to Jamaica lmao watch,” one fan wrote..
“And ya’all all the time surprised she has a lot support from Nigerians, this woman may be anything but she recognize her fans, recognize African culture and African music, Nicki over any child anyday,” one other said.
One fan said, “The song didn’t need her… and stop using a Jamaican accent mam you’re from Trinidad,” while one other added, “Y’all don’t find it funny how she gravitates towards certain artists? Like, whoever is popping atm she does songs with them to remain relevant lmao.”
Burna Boy’s ‘I Told Them…’ is the artist’s seventh studio album. It was nominated for the 2024 Grammy Awards for Best Global Music Album and the Outstanding Album award on the NAACP Image Awards, slated for later in 2024.
Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj’s recent beef with Megan Thee Stallion remains to be a hotly discussed topic in hip hop with the Houston rapper earning her first No. 1 solo debut single “HISS.” The song was enough to earn a response from Nicki Minaj, who released a response diss “Big Foot.”
