Kanye West‘s “Power” producer, Symbolyc One (S1), recently hit up SOHH and expressed his interest in contributing to Nicki Minaj‘s upcoming Pink Friday album.
According to S1, Minaj was formally introduced to him with the help of Yeezy.
“Nicki Minaj, I would love to work with her,” S1 told SOHH. “I actually connected with her already through Kanye. Kanye introduced us but, musically, I haven’t been able to do anything for her or give anything to her. Hopefully I can make Nicki Minaj’s album…When I’m doing joints with specific artists, I’m always doing joints that I wanna do but usually with each individual artist, they have their own vision so I would definitely want to do something that’s new because Nicki Minaj, she’s very talented. She has the capabilities to do pretty much anything she wants to do lyrically and vocally. So I would really like to do some joints based around her abilities and really, the sky’s the limit with her. So I would just want to push the bar, push the envelope and really do some crazy stuff.” (SOHH)
Last week, Minaj tweeted about the status of her upcoming Pink Friday album.
“I recorded my favorite song on Pink Friday last nite. After deep thought ; I’ve decided to go with my heart. Thanks 4 coming.,” she tweeted Thursday (September 23).
“Like a multi-faceted girl w/1 more chance > RT @Wayne45: @NICKIMINAJ can u give us any hints of wut pink friday is goin 2 sound like?”
“I’ll never please everyone. I’ve come to terms with that. That in itself has been my most valuable lesson to date.” (Nicki Minaj’s Twitter)
Last week, Minaj’s “Right Through Me” record leaked across the Internet.
‘Right Through Me’ is downright glossy pop-rap. The song rides a sample from guitar shredder Joe Satriani with some heavy double-time drums and finds Minaj addressing how her significant other is her favorite for putting up with her guarded personality. (The Boom Box)
Following its leak, the song’s producer, Drew Money, confirmed the release wasn’t authorized.
“I had no clue ‘Right Through Me’ was going to leak,” said Drew Money. “All I knew about the record was that they were considering it as a single. I went into the studio with Nickispecifically in mind. We’ve never worked together before but I just knew it would be the right type of record for her…She called me a few days ago and was really excited about the song. Nicki just nailed it, I didn’t even have to touch it after she sent it back. It’s already playing it on the radio and it hasn’t dropped officially. There’s only going to be more to come from us.” (VIBE)
Pink Friday is currently scheduled to drop Tuesday, November 23rd.
