Nicki Minaj Asked ‘Queenz’ Tamar Braxton, Brandy, and Keke Wyatt to Lay Down Vocals for a Track, and What They Delivered Blew Fans Away

Nicki Minaj asked, and Tamar Braxton, Brandy, and Keke Wyatt over-delivered. The “Moment 4 Life” rapper put her dream vocal lineup out into the Twitterverse, and days later teased fans with a snippet of the ethereal results.

The ten-time Grammy-nominated artist was apparently struck by inspiration while cooking up her fifth studio album and shared a scratch track of herself singing a string of vocals, along with a wishlist of the “queens” she hoped would bless the notes with their voices.

“Barbz: ask Keke, Tamar & Brandy to redo this. Thatโ€™s what I sound like in my head. Would love to hear ppl who can rlly do it,” she tweeted.

Whatever Nicki wants, Nicki gets, because by Sept. 10, two days after her original post, the Head Barb In Charge had a work-in-progress track to share from all of her picks.

“NicBranTayTayKeke. 3 QUEENZ helping me have fun with music @brandy @[email protected]_wyatt + my dope ass engineer  @bigjuice205,” Nicki captioned the video. “Thank you ladies so much. This is just a lil taste. I might share more with the fans as more vocals come in. These were the 3 ppl that initially came to my mind, so this is so dope. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‘‘โ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽ€๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž.”

In case fans were having trouble deciphering who’s who, the “Roman Holiday” rapper also noted the singers’ track vocal order, writing, “Itโ€™s Solo Brandy/Solo Tamar/Bran & Tamar together/Solo Keke.”

Minaj has been working on finishing her highly-anticipated fifth studio album, which she previously revealed would have a “bigger sound” than previous records. “It’s probably the most excited I’ve been about an album release in a really long time. I’m happy that we’re not making my fans wait for another album like I’ve done in the past,” Minaj toldย Elle in September 2019. “This one incorporates all the things people love about Nicki, but it also just has a way bigger sound, so it goes perfectly with the collection.”

In June, she told fans that they can look forward to it being her “best album thus far.”

Hearing the ladies vocals blended so beautifully had fans feeling the Black girl magic through their speakers.

“Omg the vocals๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜ฉI’m so here for this ๐Ÿ”ฅ”

“This song being released will make me ascend to higher power, I can feel it. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ”

“Black woman working together ๐Ÿ”ฅ love it”
