Word on the street is that Nicki Minaj is hooking up with her pal, professional Femme Fatale Britney Spears, for her April release, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. According to Brit Brit fansite, BreatheHeavy, the fiercest Barb in the land has tapped her one-time tourmate for the track, “Masquerade.” Neither girl has commented on the rumor, but it’s not that crazy in terms of collaborations.
It wouldn’t be the first time the two ladies worked together. Minaj dropped a verse on Spears’ “Till The World Ends” last year before she hit the road with the pop princess for her Femme Fatale trek. But the move, if it turns out to be true, shows that Minaj is always trying to move in between a pop and urban audience.
While on tour with Spears last year, she explained her stance. “I’m always surprised,” she said of Spears’ fans knowing the words to her songs. “I don’t really expect them to know all the records, but I guess it just kind of transcends all genres of music at this point.”
While this all remains a rumor, Minaj did drop the deluxe artwork for the album, out April 3. It is basically the same as the standard album’s art, but with a lot more of Nicki showing. Still painted up, the camera has panned down a lot more to expose a lot more of Minaj’s body and curves.
