Nicki Minaj, it seems, has made up her mind to own 2022 as after a slew of hits like ‘Blick Blick’, ‘Bussin’, and ‘Do We Have A Problem?’ the Queen of Rap surprised dropped a new single called ‘We Go Up’ on Friday, March 25. Nicki joined hands with rapper Fivio Foreign on her latest piece and quickly took the Internet by storm.
‘We Go Up’ within an hour peaked at the numero uno spot on US iTunes, a news that was shared by both Nicki and Fivio on their respective Instagram accounts. This comes after the 39-year-old emcee did not even aggressively promote the track and also did not drop a promo or a music video. Nicki Minaj had last dropped a single called ‘Blick Blick’ with Coi Leray just a week ago. Speaking of her album, the multi-platinum rapper had last dropped her full-length project in 2018 called ‘Queen’.

Nicki shared multiple versions of her new single that also included an extended version and an instrumental on Spotify and other leading streaming platforms. Speaking of lyrics, in the extended version Nicki raps, “After all of that surgery, you are still ugly/ Now that is what gets me/ This s**t ain't new to me, s**t is just new to y'all (S**t is just new to y'all)/ I wish a bi**h would upon a shooting star (Upon a shooting star)/ You thought you witnessed my final coup de grâce (Final coup de grâce)/ Brrt, look up, we shootin' stars.” Fivio too goes hard on his verse spitting, “I'm with a baddie, she love the aggression/ I'm with a demon, he wanna get reckless/I'm showin' them growth and I'm teachin' 'em lessons/I watch how I'm moving 'cause I'm the investment.” This is the first time when Nicki and Fivio have linked up. Also, Nicki had earlier revealed that she “scrapped this song” from her new album but got it back after her fans requested her to release it. Check out all the versions of ‘We Go Up’ here.
