Beyonce Honours Nicki Minaj With Prince Cover

Published: Monday 26th Oct 2015 by David

Beyonce’s love and admiration for Nicki Minaj has already seen her collaborate with her twice.

Fortunately, today brings with it more love from the ‘No Angel’ singer as she has recorded a cover of the 1984 Prince classic ‘Darlin Nikki’, changing the lyrics to celebrate lyricist and her status as the “rap queen.”

As always, we’ve got you covered first.

Listen below…

The original number appears on the LP ‘Purple Rain’ and was reworked by Mrs. Carter as she continues to promote the number ‘Feeling Myself‘ which is led by Minaj and features on the rapper’s third studio album ‘The Pinkprint.’

The set has sold over 922,000 units worldwide since its unveiling in the last quarter of last year.

      what did she says after “how could I resist”
      I couldn’t understand

      • Danny Bey October 27, 2015

        “…when I hear little Nicki rhyme.”

    • lisa489 October 27, 2015

      Lil Nicki is OVER-RATED with her boobs pushed up, weave and Stripper stance, she is over-rated and selling s** over talent.

      She basically has NOTHING to say except needing money, men and s** in her songs.

      Beyonce, with her old as_s needs to sit down.

      • Ciah’s Turtle October 27, 2015

        So she’s a lil overtly s*** sometimes. who isn’t?! She doesn’t rap about needing money. She raps about HAVING money. Big Diff

      • Cbookrm October 27, 2015

        How is she over rated when she’s the one that started the trend. That like saying britney spears is over rated with her blonde hair and pop music. Shes the originator

    • Lisa0954 October 27, 2015

      Sick of beyonce doing the same Tina turner/JANET imitation over the last 10 years.

      Nicki is good for jumping on a remix and not much else

    • Lea October 27, 2015

  3. Royalkev October 26, 2015

    I love Bey’s attitude! I love that she’s not trying to give these girls in the industry the cold shoulder. Bey’s in a good place and it shows! I really like her friendship with Nicki!

  4. No favs, just here for the music October 26, 2015

    So cuuute

  5. DIABETES UNBOTHERRED October 26, 2015

  6. Rima October 26, 2015

    I find both very overrated. Beyslop is just using this clown.

    • HailBeysus October 26, 2015

      That’s fine you’re entitled to your own opinion. But why are you her if you do find them overrated? I mean you obviously knew the post is going to be praising my girls so why????

      • Ciah’s Turtle October 27, 2015

        This b1tch Rima is a Fan. Every hater is

  7. Cough Cough October 26, 2015

    In just wondering why TGJ is reaching to make Beyonce singing in the shower “a tribute/honor”….. She’s literally singing while taking a s*** on the toilet and recording on her voice recorder. What an “honor”.

    • Naomi’s Edges October 26, 2015

      lol I Hear what you sayin but stop. It IS an honor to have Bey acknowledge you. And this is coming from a person who isn’t even a stan.

    • Danny Bey October 27, 2015

      She’s already recorded two songs with her. TF should this have been? A whole tribute album? Calm down and stop reaching. It’s a cute little homage to her friend. It wasn’t even necessary to begin with but she clearly is a big fan of Nicki’s. I don’t see her doing little tidbits like this all the time for any other artists she’s ever worked with

      • Ciah’s Turtle October 27, 2015

        Exactly ! She ain’t never. I’m still shocked. Bey and Nicki are pretty calculated as far as the moves they make. I smell suntin brewing

  8. Lake Erie October 26, 2015

    That was a hell of a guesstimate on calling her Queen of rap. Other then that, I’m feeling the unity Tho.

  9. RDK October 26, 2015

    nuff respect, the feelings is mutual.

  10. Tyler Makivelli October 26, 2015

    The Queen of Rap! Slayin with Queen Bey! If you aint on the team, you playin for team RIH!

    • Ciah’s Turtle October 27, 2015

  11. OMG Logic!!! October 26, 2015

    The only thing more gross than Thighyonce’s massive thighs is Onika’s oceanic amounts of cellulite mixed with silicone.

    • Tyler Makiavelli October 26, 2015

      But you stan for Mariah Carey

      • Lambily October 26, 2015

        But Mariah’s whole careers slays your fave so sit down fagler

      • Tyler Makiavelli October 26, 2015

        But Mariah still looks like an over sized Cabbage Patch Kid. Omg Logic should really hold off on the fat jokes. No shade.

      • OMG Logic!!! October 27, 2015

        Yes and Mariah has the best pair of legs in the industry. They’re literally worth a billion dollars.

      • Tyler Makiavelli October 27, 2015

        @OMG Logic
        Key word, “HAD”.

  17. Theman October 27, 2015

    Lol, just because Beyonce called you a rap whatever, doesn’t make you that.

    • Ciah’s Turtle October 27, 2015

      “I am a RAP LEGEND, just go ask the Kings of Rap. Who is the Queen and things of that..?”

  18. S****** Blonde October 27, 2015
