Nicki Minaj set the Internets on fire with her cheeky announcement of a new single, “Anaconda,” which ended up being delayed. But word is the new song was put on hold (until August 4) because Beyonce is dropping a new single that features the YMCMB rapper. 

Minjaj was cryptic with her original delay message, saying, “My darlingz, I’ve pushed the release of Anaconda to next week, Monday 8/4. I promise you will understand why before the week is out. Loveeeeeeee uuuuuu.”

Now a music industry source tells Hip-Hop Wired that Minaj pushed her single back in order to avoid it getting lost in the sure to be excitement of a new track from Jay Z’s wife.

If and when said song is released, you heard about it here first.
