If you've been paying attention to today's new releases, you've heard that new Major Lazer “Run Up,” featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR and Nicki Minaj. Party is one of the hottest rising R&B singers in the scene, and Nicki is the highest-selling female rapper of all time. So, kind of a big deal release, and Majoer Lazer don Diplo hopped on the phone with Zane Lowe for a Beats 1 exclusive interview.
“We love Party,” he told Lowe. “We write a lot with him, he's local here in LA, and Nicki, I was working on some stuff for her record. The timing was right. I've been trying to get Nicki to do something with us for a couple years now.”
Minaj dropped the news that she'll be released her fourth, and at least partially-Diplo produced, album in her “Run Up” verse, of which there were many more such verses that didn't make the final cut.
