Is a Nicki Minaj-Doja Cat friendship brewing? Fans hope 'sweet message' leads to new collab
Doja Cat has been open about how she admired Nicki Minaj and how she inspired her since she was 13 years old
Nicki Minaj's celebratory words to Doja Cat after the 'Say So' singer's maiden Grammy win on April 3 has left fans wondering if the two are working on a new collaboration. Doja Cat and SZA won the Grammy for 'Best Pop Duo or Group Performance' for their song 'Kiss Me More'. A tearful Doja Cat was thrilled with the win and delivered an emotional acceptance speech. “I like to downplay a lot of s***, but this is a big deal. Damn… thank you, everybody. Be safe,” Doja Cat said.
Nicki, who has previously collaborated with Doja Cat on 'Say So' (Remix), shared the wonderful celebratory message on Instagram Stories. “Congratulations on your Grammy mama. You really really really really really really really fkng deserve it [pink bow emoji].”
On the Grammys red carpet Doja Cat was asked about her decision to "quit" music after blazing Twitter with an outburst last week, to which she did not directly answer. But when she was asked which artist she wanted to work with in the future, Doja Cat said: "Everybody knows its Nicki [Minaj]! It's all the time." Doja Cat has been upfront on social media about how she admired the Queen of Rap and how she inspired her since she was 13 years old.
Doja Cat even thanked Nicki Minaj on her song 'Get Into It (Yuh)' on her Grammy-nominated album 'Planet Her'. Apparently, the track was a tribute to Nicki for "paving the way for her polished pop-rap career." Nicki was invited to feature on the track, but she declined, noting that "there were middle people involved," making it challenging to work on the song together.
“But I didn’t love that song because I didn’t think I could bring anything to it. So I asked them to send me something else. I think that was the second song they sent me, I asked them to send me something else and they didn’t send me anything else,” Nicki had said.
While Nicki's letter to a Doja Cat was kind, fans were more interested in the message Doja had previously sent to Nicki. One user wrote in the comment section, "Imagine being able to text nicki 'wyd’.” Others applauded Nicki for her sweet gesture. One admirer said in the comments section, "Nicki was never a hater." "Nicki keeps congratulating artists even tho Grammys put her through hell. Respect," another fan added. Nicki also uploaded a video of Doja Cat being interviewed by Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet. When asked who she would like to work with on her bucket list, Doja replied, “Who do I wanna work with? Well, everybody knows it’s Nicki, it’s all the time. It’s Nicki.”
