Nicki Minaj grew up in South Side Jamaica Queens, New York listening to a lot of dancehall during the Bounty Beenie reign.
Although she primarily rap and sing right now, she still has a soft spot for hardcore dancehall joints.
During a recent interview with Power 105’s DJ Prostyle, Nicki Minaj says her favourite dancehall joint right now is Mr. Vegas smash hit “Bruk It Down.”
“Every time that song comes on, you gotta turn around and look at your and go real crazy on that. I did that on stage in the UK and the people went buck wild,” Nicki Minaj said.
Mr. Vegas, who has had an emotional last few weeks, says he is happy the Queen Barbie gave the track her blessings.
“I put in a lot of work on this record and I’m happy that Nicki Minaj loves it. It would be great to do a remix and video with her. I feel great because I know how huge Nicki is, especially with young people,” Vegas said.
Nicki Minaj latest album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up shows disappointing first week sales.
The American Idol judge is getting ready to launch her own record label next year.
