But now the track has been added to the digital versions of the album on Apple Music, Spotify and TIDAL. However, the original version of the project still exists on the various streaming platforms.
“FEFE” is currently listed as a “Bonus Track” on Apple Music, while it’s simply added to the end of the tracklist on Spotify and TIDAL.
It’s possible Minaj is trying to secure the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart by adding the song.
“FEFE” was released on July 22 and debuted on the Hot 100 at No. 4. According to a tweet from Chart Data, the song is now eligible for platinum status.
