Nicki Minaj Brings Out “King Of Dancehall” Beenie Man

Nicki Minaj Brings Out Beenie Man During Her London Concert

Nicki Minaj is currently seeing a resurgence in breaking records as she has set the record for the highest-grossing tour by a female rapper, and her latest album featured her first solo number one single. Riding this wave of success, Minaj has delighted fans by inviting several special guests to her shows. After reuniting with Drake in Toronto and honoring her fellow Young Money artist earlier in May, Minaj elevated the excitement at her London concert by bringing out Beenie Man, the King of Dancehall.

Minaj welcomed Beenie Man with great respect, requesting only a hug upon his entrance before bowing down to him in front of the enthusiastic crowd. Beenie Man reciprocated the admiration, declaring Minaj the queen of hip-hop if he is the king of dancehall. The duo then energized the audience with a performance of Beenie Man’s classic track “I’m Drinking / Rum & Redbull.” Known for her bold and vibrant personality, Minaj’s deferential gesture stood out. She even shared the moment on X (formerly Twitter).

Nicki Minaj Caribbean Influences

“I just performed with the KING OF DANCEHALL,” Minaj tweeted. “One of the most talented musicians that I looked to for inspiration my entire career. I can’t believe this is my life sometimes. Wow. One of my heroes. I love this man so much. @KingBeenieMan.” Though raised in New York, Minaj was born in Trinidad and has always incorporated dancehall influences into her music. This was evident on her track “Forward from Trini” from the album *Pink Friday 2*, which features artists like Skillibeng and Skeng.

Addressing her fans on Stationhead, Minaj responded to critics of her dancehall tracks by saying, “Y’all, some of them don’t like it, but it’s okay. They’re gonna have to get with it… I’m sorry if y’all can’t understand this kind of music.” Minaj isn’t the first Young Money artist to collaborate with Beenie Man; Drake featured the dancehall legend on his 2016 album *Views*, where Beenie Man contributed to the outro on “Controlla.”
