DJ Khaled released his highly anticipated album Grateful. The star-studded tracklist is a who’s who of today’s mainstream music world. Joining the list of superstars such as Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Drake and others is a soulful collaboration between Alicia Keys and Nicki Minaj.
Khaled premiered the album on We The Best Radio on Apple Music before it officially dropped. In an intro, Diddy praised the producer for his ability to create hits, saying, “He’s always been at a higher frequency and he’s always been about us.” The album features a stacked roster of artists. In addition to those already mentioned, Travis Scott, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Future, Migos, Gucci Mane, Young Thug, Alicia Keys, and more all lent their vocals.
The R&B songstress and rap Queen link up for the second time on “Nobody,” a gospel inspired anthem that borrows from the song “Nobody Knows” by Pastor T.L. Barrett and the Youth for Christ Choir.
The praise-filled track allows both artists to shine and get a little boastful, as Nicki rips her verse. “I’m addicted to winning and I can’t be benched / Go to war for every black queen that they lynched / And my pockets on chubby but they can’t be pinched,” she raps.
Nicki and Alicia previously worked together on “Girl on Fire.”
