Beyonce Does Nicki Minaj-Inspired Cover of Prince's 'Darling Nikki': Listen
Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj have been leaking behind-the-scenes footage from their performance together at last week's Tidal X show at the Barclays Center (Oct. 20) all week, presumably as a means of hyping the live footage (which is, naturally, exclusively available on Tidal).
The latest clip shows the irresistible pair rehearsing onstage, while Beyoncé sings a modified version of Prince's Purple Rain track "Darling Nikki." "I met a girl named Nicki / I guess you can say she was the rap queen," she sings, "I met her in the studio lobby but her booty looked bigger in the magazines / She said 'B, would you jump on this song of mine?' / How could I resist when I heard little Nicki rhyme."
