Nicki Minaj Announces First New Song Since Pregnancy Reveal

A new Nicki Minaj track is about to drop! Days after announcing her pregnancy, the rapper confirmed that she’s on the verge of releasing a collaboration with A$AP Ferg.

Titled “Move Ya Hips,” conversation around the single was first brought up on social media by none other than A$AP Rocky. “SUMBODY TELL @ASAPferg 2 DROP DAT SHIT WIT HIM N NICKI ASAP,” the rapper tweeted in all caps on Sunday (July 26), leading Minaj to reply, “Flacko, I heard it was coming Thursday but I could be wrong.” (Ten minutes later, Ferg confirmed the track’s July 30 release date as well, declaring, “The Queen is never wrong.”)

2020 has already been a major year for Minaj. Along with announcing her first pregnancy with husband Kenneth Petty last week, the superstar has managed to finally notch not one but two No. 1 hits on the Hot 100 thanks to her recent collaborations with Doja Cat (the “Say Something” remix) and Tekashi 6ix9ine (“Trollz”).

The rapper’s last solo single was 2019’s “Megatron,” which peaked just inside the Top 20, while her most recent studio set, Queen, arrived in Aug. 2018 at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.

Check out Nicki, A$AP Ferg and A$AP Rocky’s tweets teasing the new track below.
