Nicki also makes sure to give Ice her credit as the Princess throughout the track. Stunning in pink, the two have their way through their Barbie-like palace. With bodacious curves, heavy confidence, and very blessed... assets, the two twerk their way through the colorful Edgar Esteves-directed visual leaving viewers definitely wanting more.

She is set to star in the series as well as executive produce alongside 50 Cent and others. The collaboration is already No. 1 on iTunes and extends Nicki's ongoing record of the rapper with the most No. 1's. in iTunes history. 2023 is most definitely looking to be the year of Minaj.
Prior to the release of the song, there were rumors and heavy speculation that Ice Spice may be partnering with Nicki and joining her new label. The song definitely increases the speculation. Before launching into Ice's notable verse, Nicki shouts out "Heavy On It," which has been reported to be the title of Nicki's label. Nicki quoted a fan page that noticed the song's apparent co-distribution by Nicki's label on Twitter. Using nothing more than a mere emoji smiling and covering its face, it seemed as though Minaj may have confirmed the speculations.
