Twitter – Nicki Minaj hosted a Twitter Q&A for her fans shortly after dropping the new single “Yikes.” When a fan asked her how the song came about, the newly coined Mrs. Kenneth Petty claimed she felt forced to release it.

“I was playing a snippet for my crazy fans & they made me put it out,” she said. “They are bullies. I only had 1 verse done. The label bullied me too. I’ve been bullied.”

During the Q&A, Nicki revealed some background on the song, noting she made the hook up on the spot.

“I made up the hook with no paper,” she said. “Just freestyled in the booth cuz I loved the beat. so the yikes part is me hearing the beat for the very first time. The verses I wrote down. The outro was a freestyle.”

The Queen Radio host also confirmed she’ll be introducing a new alter ego named Queen Sleeze on her follow-up to 2018’s Queen.

“She’s more calm but way deadlier,” she said. “My husband always says he’s more afraid when I talk quiet then when I yell. Lmao. He said that’s how he knows when I’m dead tf serious.”

“Yikes” stirred up some controversy earlier this week due to Nicki’s line about late civil rights activist Rosa Parks. “All you bitches Rosa Parks/Uh oh, get your ass up,” she rapped, a reference to Parks’ 1955 Montgomery bus boycott.

In true Nicki fashion, she made it clear she isn’t concerned about the backlash.

“Never said this,” she wrote on one of her Instagram Stories. “Had no clue anyone was mad. Don’t care. #Yikes”

She included TMZ’s headline, “NICKI MINAJ ALLEGEDLY SAYS ROSA PARKS LYRIC WAS ‘BAD TIMING;’ NOT MEANT TO OFFEND OR DISRESPECT PARKS.”
