The 2010 track 'Right Thru Me' helped to make Pink Friday a big hit and Nicki Minaj a big star.
According to Nicki, Kanye West really wanted to be on the track. But she said no, because the song was too "personal" to share it.
Hooks I freestyled in the studio: "Blazin" Fun fact: Kanye REALLY wanted to get on RIGHT THRU ME. I had to beg him to change his mind.— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) March 25, 2017
Yes. I wish I would've obliged. But at the time it was just such a personal song to me. He really loved it. Lol. Crazy right? https://t.co/reuMJVoa1q— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) March 25, 2017
Nicki and Kanye would appear together on a couple of other tracks during that time period: Ye's hit 'Monster' and the Pink Friday cut 'Blazin''.
