Nicki Minaj released ”Black Barbies,” a new song remixing Rae Sremmurd, Gucci Mane, and Mike WiLL Made-It’s “Black Beatles,” which is also the song you keep hearing in those “mannequin challenge” videos. The song has made it toNo. 1 on theBillboardHot 100, and Minaj proudly posted about the song on Instagram with her own version. “Why? Cuz 2 Lil black kids got the NUMBER 1 RECORD IN THE COUNTRY & I’m soooooo happy for Mike Will,” she wrote. In “Black Barbies,” Minaj also took the opportunity to attack President-elect Donald Trump: “Donald Trump want me go home / Still pull up with my wrist lookin’ like a snow cone / She said she got a hit record, I said ‘Oooh shit!’ / Picked up my phone cause I had to call ‘Bullshit!'” You can listen to “Black Barbies” below.
Nicki Minaj & Beyonce had the most thrilling set, flanked by backup dancers for “Moment 4 Life.” But it was when the beat queued up for “Feeling Myself,” her empowerment anthem with Beyoncé, that the night hit full-throttle. The rumors were true. The two had been spotted exiting a rehearsal space earlier in the week, fueling speculation they would perform the song for the first time in tandem — and they did, with Bey’s pink-clad dance crew battling Minaj’s black-lace team. Check out the pics below.

After revealing both the artwork and tracklist for his sophomore effort this week, iHeartRadio has premiered “All Eyes on You,” with Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown. This is one of two songs in which Minaj is featured. It blends Minaj’s pop side with Meek’s hard-edged raps as the couple shares why no one else matters but each other. They even interpolate lyrics from Notorious B.I.G.’s “Spit Your Game” for an intimate duet. Catered to the clubs, we might have another contender for song of summer.

Unless you were living under a rock yesterday, you probably already know that the new music video for Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé’s collaboration “Feeling Myself” came out. And for those of you who saw it, you know it was pure visual fun—awesome colors, crazy clothing combos, and cheeseburgers galore. (A formula for success if ever there was one.)
We caught up with the woman behind the fashion—stylist Marni Senofonte, whose worked with everyone from Kim Kardashian to Mary J. Blige—to get the insider deets on EVERYTHING that went down.
This video is serious eye candy. Everything is just so fun and powerful and colorful. What was the idea or concept for the shoot?
“The truth of the matter is, it was really last minute. And it was Beyoncé’s idea to go to Coachella and to shoot at Coachella. It was so spur of the moment! But that’s B, that’s her. She’s so spontaneous and it’s just part of her craft—if she likes it or she wants it she goes for it. Honestly, there was no real ‘treatment’ that usually happens. The idea was, you know, ‘let’s go to Coachella.’ It was supposed to feel the way that I hope it does—really good friends, just going and having a good time, and making fun memories. And I scrambled together in two days what we would need and we went over everything, but it was really this idea of, you know, everyone at Coachella looks like a hippie, but I was like, what if the other kind of kids to go Coachella? This is all the clothes that we were wearing. It’s pretty much the urban version of Coachella.”
“It was a total girlfriend vibe. Like ‘You wear this, no you should wear this. Oh no, you look better in that.'”
Was there anything that Nicki or Beyoncé brought to the table in terms of what they wanted to wear or look like?
“You know, some of the clothes were actually B’s. A couple of the bathing suits were hers and the rest we kind of just shipped out and had things made. Again, we had two days, so it was just kind of like, what looks good? What do we want to do? B was so cool. She was kind of like my first assistant on the job: ‘We should wear this, Oh I have this.’ It was awesome. And Nicki–I have to tell you, I was so nervous. Not nervous to work with her, but it’s just generally hard to work with somebody on this type of level for the first time. There’s often things that they don’t want to wear, like, ‘oh, I don’t want to show my arms,’ etc. and because it was so last minute, I wasn’t aware of any of that going in. But she was so open to everything! Nicki and I talked after the video, and she was just like ‘I can’t believe we’re just going to shoot this!’ But that’s the best part about these two, and working with Beyoncé especially—she’s so off the cuff and so down for anything. I worked with her on the 7/11 video as well, and each was really…nothing was predetermined. We’d run and grab clothes, change, figure out what we wanted and then refine the idea. That was it.”
