Nicki Minaj and PartyNextDoor Join Major Lazer for “Run Up”
Nicki Minaj and PartyNextDoor may have a No. 1. hit with their newest collabo. Minaj and PND join international superstars Major Lazer—comprised of Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire—for the Caribbean-inspired single "Run Up."
The record is made for the dance floor, with Party and Nicki providing the vibes over fun production from Major Lazer.
"Girl you used to bein' quiet/'Til I brought that loud/You say your dollars is amountin'/And your mama your accountant/You watch your figures, you a big deal/Got your fresh prince and a big wheel," PND croons.
Nicki comes in at the end and closes the song, showing off her Trinidadian roots. She also hints at dropping a new album this year. "Major keys, I'm the boss/Don't Griselda go off?/Left from the loft and went to Bergdorf/Most of these dudes is really quite soft/45 special, this is my cloth/'Bout to drop a album, this is my fourth/I don't put sugar in my spaghetti sauce."
“It’s always important for us to work with people who are on the same wave,” explains Diplo. “Nicki and Party really helped us bring the classic Major Lazer style to create this perfect party record.”
Major Lazer made a documentary titled Give Me Future, which was filmed at their historic 2016 show in Havana, Cuba. They premiered the film last week at the Sundance Film Festival. Give Me Future is set for release later this year.
