After several delays, due to issues with Atlantic Records, Nicki Minaj and Lil Uzi Vert finally released the remix to Luv Is Rage 2 standout “The Way Life Goes” on Nov. 2. Back in August, Nicki pleaded with Uzi on Instagram to send her the beat so she could get to work on the track’s remix. Over the weekend, (Nov. 18) Minaj and the Philly native posted them together relaxing on set to social media, letting fans knows an epic visual was on the way.
The DJ Don Cannon and Ike Beats-produced remix notched Onika’s 82nd entry to the Billboard Hot 100, as the song has peaked a No. 31 on the most recently released chart. The Pinkprint artist said via Instagram that Uzi reminds her of Lil Wayne: “It’s a pleasure to work with him. He reminds me so much of Tunechi. He gives me the Lil’ Tunechi vibe, and because of that I fucking love him. Shout out to the fans we’re about to give you a killer video.”
Nicki captioned the Instagram video, “This dat Nicki.This dat UZI. Who’s ready for the video. This just became my 82nd Billboard Hot 100 Entry. Thank you guys so much. #TheWayLifeGoesREMIX #Motorsport was my 81st. Barbie working but u ain’t seen nuffin yet!”
The 22-year-old then proceeded to post a clip from set, hitting his signature shoulder dance while brushing off the “Super Bass” artist’s shoulder. See the talented duo chilling out together below, and be on the look-out for a potential release date for the “killer video.”
