Jesy Nelson Teams Up With Nicki Minaj On ‘Boyz’
Jesy Nelson Teams Up With Nicki Minaj On ‘Boyz’.Former Little Mix member Jesy Nelson has teamed up with Nicki Minaj on her debut solo single “Boyz.”
The U.K. baddie and the Barbie once again prove to be a formidable duo on the nostalgic track, which samples Diddy’s 2001 anthem “Bad Boy for Life.” They also remake the music video, complete with a cameo from the Bad Boy icon himself.
Nicki shouts out Puff Daddy & The Family on her verse. “Bad bitches want a Bad Boy / Word to Biggie, Diddy, and Ma$e,” she raps. “Whoa like Rob, won’t find a prettier face / He gon’ keep my VVS’s dancin’ like Total / So I could just Shyne while he shoot up the place.”
The Queen previously collaborated with Jesy on Little Mix’s 2018 single “Woman Like Me.”
“Boyz” marks a new chapter for Jesy, who left Little Mix in December 2020. “The truth is recently being in the band has really taken a toll on my mental health,” she said upon her departure from the group. “I find the constant pressure of being in a girl group and living up to expectations very hard.”
