Kanye West Got Declined By Nicki Minaj To Clear New Body Verse
History Of New Body
The history of ‘New Body’ dates back to Kanye West’s shelved Yandhi album. During that time, he had collaborated with Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla Sign. The song also underwent multiple transformations.
But this was a common occurrence in Kanye West’s creative process. As time went by. It was eventually slated for inclusion. In the updated version of ‘Jesus is King’. Featuring clean lyrics.
Despite these plans. The full version of the track leaked in 2019, and an unexpected music video surfaced online in October this year.
To the greatest surprise of fans. The track ‘New Body’ also appeared on the recently unveiled tracklist. For Kanye and Ty Dolla’s upcoming album, Vultures.
Although. Kanye West publicly disclosed that he had approached Nicki to clear her verse for the song. But this never happened as Kanye West got declined by Nicki Minaj.
Moreover. As the anticipated release of Vultures was met with delays. Nicki addressed Kanye’s request during an Instagram Live session on Thursday night (Dec 14).
She made it clear that she is not inclined to release the song at this point. Stating…
“Now regarding Kanye, chile, that train has left the station. Okay, no disrespect in any way. I just put out a brand-new album. Why would I put out a song that’s been out for three years? C’mon guys”.
In conclusion. Nicki’s response suggests her focus on her recent album release. And a reluctance to revisit older material.
More to this. The mention of the “train has left the station”. Emphasizes her decisiveness in moving forward. And not dwelling on past projects.
As fans eagerly await Vultures and the fate of ‘New Body’. Nicki Minaj‘s firm stance adds. An intriguing layer to the anticipation. Surrounding the collaborative album.
