Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande team up again on ‘Bed’
Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande are close friends and this has resulted in multiple collaborations. So far, we got ‘Bang Bang’ (the track they did together with Jessie J), ‘On Your Knees’ and ‘Side To Side’. In the coming week, we get not one, but two new ones. On the 20th of June, Ariana will launch ‘The Light Is Coming’ featuring Minaj, together with the pre-order for her upcoming album Sweetener. Nicki just dropped the second single of her upcoming album Queen, titled ‘Bed’, which features Ariana too.

Just a day after Ariana’s collaboration with Troye Sivan, ‘Dance To This’, got released, we get to enjoy her smooth vocals on a sensual track once more! Grande serves the chorus of this laidback bop with understated vocal work, only to belt out hitting her signature high notes. Minaj serves some sexual content in her lyrics in the verses, talking about how she wants to be orally pleased, how she likes her men in sweatpants and name dropping Zayn, with whom she will drop a collaboration soon. Although I don’t see ‘Bed’ being as successful as ‘Side To Side’, a decent sized hit should be within reach. Check back this time next week to hear ‘The Light Is Coming’!
