Nicki Minaj Talks How Beyonce’ Approached Her About Being on The Remix to Flawless


Nicki Minaj is walking on air after the release of Flawless remix, we told that Bey was going to make her rap debut on the remix to¬†Flawless, but we did not know she was just going to once again snatch our edges clean with it so soon…. During an interview on Hot 97, Minaj revealed how the song came to be. G. Roberson, founder of management firm Hip Hop Since 1978, approached Minaj “a month or two ago” to say Beyonce would like her to remix “Flawless.”

Minaj did confirm that Bey was in the studio while she was laying her verse down and she encouraged her to be hersef.. She says: “After I got proper medical help and started breathing again, I was like, ‘What?’ She sent me a version that she wanted. She told me, ‘I want you to be you. I don’t want you to hold back.” I said, ‘You sure?’ She said, ‘Yeah. I want you to just be you and do you.’ I was actually in New York writing the verse. I recorded the verse in New York and she stopped by the studio. She was such a sweetheart. She was hyping me up, like, ‘Yeah, do your thing. Don’t hold back. Go in.’ And I said, ‘Okay, all right.'”

Beyonce told her the track would premiere during the course of the On the Run tour, and that is exactly what happened… Nicki explains: “When I was putting out mix tapes and stuff, I would always remix her stuff,” Minaj said. “I have a dope remix that my fans have always been in love with, to one of her songs, ‘Sweet Dreams,’ [that] me and Wayne did,”

“I figured that eventually we would do something together. I mean, I’m not gonna lie. Recently I thought it would never happen ’cause I felt like if she was going to ask me, she would have been asked me. I think the stars aligned the right way. We are just in the right places in our careers that it makes sense now. I feel like, with the release to her last album, her records are geared to what I do now, and so it is what it is.”
