Eric Bellinger Discusses Producing Nicki Minaj Anaconda Single

Eric Bellinger, who co-produced Nicki Minaj‘s upcoming “Anaconda” single with Polow Da Don and Da Internz, recently spoke to MTV about the track.

The songwriter explained what we can expect from the song, how it all came together in the studio, and how Nicki always wanted it to be a single off her upcoming The Pink Print album.

You can read what Bellinger said after the jump below!

“She went crazy. Turn up. That’s it; just turn up. The realest turn up possible.”

“Most people don’t look to me as a producer; they look to me as a songwriter. I think Da Internz, they trusted my veteran ear. Polow Da Don had the idea; then brought it to Da Internz; Da Internz called me in, and then we kinda just were vibing it out with suggestions and opinions and placements and arranging it. I kinda played a Quincy Jones in the situation, almost. Every step of the way, me and Kosine of Da Internz were piggybacking off ideas.”

“She knew that she wanted it to be her single, so it was a super big advantage for us when we were in there working. We were like: ‘Well, we’re not leaving until it gets right,’ I didn’t get home until the next day, until it was daylight. And I think everybody that was involved was super open to, ‘Whatever we have to do for the sake of the song; whatever’s the best look for the song, let’s do that.’ And everybody put egos aside.”

“For this one, it was like it was already a hit single and it was already #1 when we were in the studio. It was a crazy feeling.”
