AceShowbiz - Nicki Minaj may soon work together with Kim Petras. The Trinidadian hip-hop artist has hinted at a possible collaboration with the "Unholy" star after she followed the latter on Instagram.
On Sunday, March 12, eagle-eyed fans noticed that the "Super Freaky Girl" hitmaker hit the follow button on Kim's account on the photo-sharing platform. Not stopping there, the raptress also left a comment on the German singer/songwriter's recent post.
"@kimpetras baby!!!!!" Nicki wrote. Then a fan replied to her comment, "I need y'all collabs like yesterday [crying emoji]." In response, the "Super Bass" femcee said, "oh yea?" adding eyes emoji.
The social media gesture came after Nicki made some serious allegations, saying that she believes some other female rappers' labels pay for "diss tweets" aimed at her to bring her down. "As you rap and you write, you get better. And you get better every day," the 40-year-old raptress told Rah Ali during a virtual listening event for the femcee's new song "Red Ruby Da Sleeze" on the Stationhead app on March 7.
"I think the thing is, now, because of the...I think I mentioned this before, the micowaveability of TikTok artists getting deals, Instagram people getting likes or Twitter people...girls' labels and management companies paying for viral tweets and paying for Nicki diss tweets and all that," Nicki added. The Harajuku Barbie went on elaborating, "So, now, it's kinda like, if I don't remind them that we're actually here to rap, who will? And then, on top of that, don't ever put me in the same muthaf**kin sentence."
The "Red Ruby Da Sleeze" artist then noted, "Don't use my name for any examples. You have to write your verses, period. And I say that with love because I think that now people are feeling pressure of having to, I don't know, do things so fast."
In the meantime, Kim recently gained fame thanks to her collaboration "Unholy" with Sam Smith. They won the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category at the 2023 Grammys and the songstress became the first trans woman to take home the award.
