Nicki Minaj Speaks On Working With Ciara On Im Legit & More

Carrying on with her interview with The Boombox, Nicki Minaj discusses what made her collaborate with Ciara on a song called “I’m Legit” that will appear on her forthcoming Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up album, dropping on November 19th. Nicki says it was her who reached out to Ciara to work on a song together and “she nailed the hook times 10”.

“My fans had been asking me to work with her for a long time so I thought it’d be kinda cute. I’ve always thought Ciara was so dope. Let’s face it, she’s probably one of the best dancers that we’ve had in our generation, you know what I mean. So that alone just makes her very iconic.”

“When I heard how she did the hook of the record… it’s like she nailed it so crazy and we had been listening to the reference track. We were afraid that whoever would end up singing it wouldn’t really sing it exactly how we wanted it to sound, but she nailed it times 10.”

In related news, Ciara also confirmed to MTV that the Young Money Barbie will be appearing on her upcoming One Woman Army album, which is due to drop in early 2013. This means that fans can be looking out for two new Minaj and Ciara records to be released in the future!

PJ Morton Speaks On His Album, A Song He Has With Busta Rhymes & More

PJ Morton recently took a break from working on his album to talk with The Boombox about his upcoming projects and how supportive YMCMB have been for him. The Young Money singer said his forthcoming album is 80% complete and will drop next year. PJ also confirmed a song off the project, which is called “Never Get Over You” and features his label-mate Busta Rhymes.

Forthcoming album:
“It’s very Stevie Wonder-esqe. Just the current version of what Stevie would sound like if he came out today. I think in general there’s not a lot of real instruments being used in music right now; it’s a lot of digital drums and while I had some of that going on in the last record, there’s definitely some live horns, some live strings. I’m playing a lot of piano and a lot of keyboards on this album.”

Busta Rhymes song:
“The name of the song is ‘Never Get Over You’. It’s kind of like old school Busta, you know Leaders of The New School days. It’s very breakbeat style, old school New York style, which is why I thought of him in the beginning when I started working on the song.”

Signing to Young Money and their support:
“Mack Maine, who is the President and who introduced me to Wayne and got me into the label, those guys, they come to me as a fan and somebody that already believes in me so it hasn’t been a rule of them telling me what I should or shouldn’t do. It’s really been just full support, which is really refreshing and what I love most about being in that family.”
