After months of waiting for a collaboration with Nicki Minaj, it looks like Yung Bleu has finally gotten his wish.
Yung Bleuwhose real name is Jeremy Biddlewanted to collaborate with Nicki Minaj since last year. In June 2021, the 28-year-old reached out to her on Twitter and said, “@NICKIMINAJ You are awesome… I’m not just saying this because we should make a song… even though we should lol.” While he didn’t expect it, Nicki liked her tweet, which shocked him.
After their initial conversation on social media, the Mobile, Alabama native teased that they had a song together in September. While performing at a show in New York, he told the crowd, “I was working on a song with an artist from this city and I wanted you guys to hear this shit just to see if you guys think it’s going to work. I don’t know if you guys know anyone named Nicki Minaj?” However, he never played a record.
After the recorded moment went viral, Bleu took to the internet and explained the entire ordeal. He tweeted: “We [não] We’ve got a song yet, actually, I just wanted to play some shit that we’ve been working on since we were in New York. I still have to produce the verses.”
While there was a lot of speculation before, it looks like the two finally got a chance to work together. Yesterday (August 5th), Nicki took to her Instagram story to post, “This song I just did with Bleu.” After seeing what she uploaded, Yung Bleu took a screenshot and shared it with her 1.5 million followers. “[emoji de diabo sorridente] AT THIS TIME @nickiminaj”.
