Nicki Minaj Says Drake Wrote Alicia Keys' “Unthinkable” For Her
“He told me he said something about me on a verse, but I didn’t think it would be anything like that. He let me hear it for the first time when we did Jay’s show at Madison Square Garden, the day before Wayne had to go to jail—that night he let me hear it on the headphones.”
Nicki also reveals that one of this year’s biggest R&B songs was actually written for her, telling the mag,
“You know what else [Drake] told me he wrote for me? The Alicia Keys song “I’m Ready.” I happen to love the song. I never told anyone that, I hope he won’t get mad that I said that.”
Minaj also touches on her relationship with her Young Money brethren and their playful ways with the media, saying,
“You have no idea how much I love them. We joke around. That’s the thing about Young Money, we will say a lot of crazy Shyte in the press but we will get around each other and start cracking up laughing like brothers and sisters. Drake is a playboy. He probably told mad *itches he wrote them songs for ‘em.”
Nick Minaj’s debut LP Pink Friday is set to drop November 23.
