Doja Cat has revealed that Nicki Minaj was one of the performers she looked up to the most while growing up. Doja discussed Minaj’s impact on her during a recent interview with Billboard.
While Doja was able to collaborate with Nicki for a remix to “Say So,” Nicki didn’t make it onto Doja’s latest album, Planet Her.
Nicki explained her absence on a fan’s Twitter Spaces conversation back in September.
“It’s not that I’m too busy at all, it’s just that there were, like, middle people involved in that situation so I had told her, if it was like how me and BIA were direct and we talked to each other directly, but I didn’t love that song [“Get Into It”] because I didn’t think I could bring anything to it,” said Nicki. “So I asked them to send me something else. I think that was the second song they sent me, I asked them to send me something else and they didn’t send me anything else.”
