Nicki Minaj digs deep into an emotional place on her new single, “Bed of Lies.” First debuted during the 2014 MTV EMAs last weekend, the Young Money rapper gives fans the full Kane Beatz-produced record, featuring singer-songwriter Skylar Grey.
On the record, Minaj appears to open up about her ex-boyfriend Safaree “Scaff Beezy” Samuels, after over a decade of being in a relationship together.
“You could never make eye contact. Everything you got was based off of my contacts,” she raps. “You a fraud, but I’mma remain icon-stat. Balenciaga’s on my boots with the python strap.” Later she continued, “I told Baby hit you, I said this dude buggin’. Cause I was doing it for us, I told em fu*k the public,” later confirming the two parted ways, “Couldn’t believe that I was home alone contemplating overdosin’, all the postin’, no more toastin’ over oceans. They say you don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone. They say that your darkest hour comes before your dawn. But there was something I should’ve asked all along.”
Available for purchase on iTunes, the song is off Nicki Minaj’s third solo LP The Pinkprint, due Dec. 15.
