Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande release ‘Bed’

There’s no doubt that Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande are the queens of collaborating. From ‘Get On Your Knees’, ‘Bang Bang’ with Jessie J, to ‘Side To Side’, over the years Nicki and Ari have delivered bop after bop, always leaving us wanting more.

Today (June 14) sees Nicki and Ariana slay us once more with the sultry ‘Bed’, taken from Nicki’s forthcoming album Queen. If that wasn’t enough, the ladies will also be releasing ‘The Light Is Coming’ next week, taken from Ariana’s forthcoming album Sweetener.

‘Bed’ is a seductive offering which showcases Nicki’s flawless verses whilst Ariana croons the infectious hook: “Got a bed, wit’ your name on it, wit’ your name on it, got a kiss, wit’ your name on it, wit’ your name on it”. The track is the perfect late night summer party jam and is another stellar offering from the collab queens.

Speaking about the collaboration on Twitter, Nicki said:

It seems that ‘Bed’ could have turned out quite differently, as Nicki had also considered teaming up with ZAYN for the track. In reference to the lyric “Coulda put ZAYN on it”, Nicki tweeted a fan that it was a “double meaning for putting him on it. Meaning I could’ve asked him to feature on the song; something I thought about a year ago when I 1st completed the song.”

Take a listen to ‘Bed’ below.

‘Bed’ is the latest track to be released from Queen, following on from ‘Chun-Li’ and ‘Real Tingz’ featuring Lil Wayne. Queen will be released on August 10 and includes a mammoth 19 tracks. You can pre-order the album now.

If new music wasn’t enough, Nicki also recently announced her forthcoming North American and European tour with Future. The North American leg of the NICKIHNDRXX tour will kick off in Baltimore on September 21 and finish in Las Vegas on November 24. The European leg takes place in 2019, starting in Munich on February 21 and finishing in Geneva on March 28.
