In a recent interview with Open Thoughts, Nicki Minaj opened up about a failed collaboration on her new album, Pink Friday 2. The track in question, "Cowgirl," was originally supposed to feature Doja Cat, but things didn't go as planned. While Minaj didn't explicitly mention Doja Cat's name, fans have been speculating about it. According to Minaj, the person initially recorded their part and sent it back. But then, they claimed they were "in a different era" and couldn't collaborate anymore. This led to some back and forth between them. Minaj also mentioned receiving comments that made her think the person believed she didn't like them. Although Doja Cat's name wasn't mentioned, fans have connected the dots and believe it was her.
On social media, fans have been expressing their thoughts about the situation. Some fans think Doja Cat's decision not to feature on the track was due to her wanting to focus on her "heavy rap era," while "Cowgirl" is more of a singing track. Others have defended Minaj, saying that she genuinely wanted Doja Cat on the album, but she may come across as angry and bitter, even when she isn't. There have also been comments about Doja Cat allegedly not clearing the vocals after recording her feature. Some fans don't understand why people are making a big deal out of it, believing that if Doja Cat didn't want to do it, then that's her decision. However, others argue that Minaj should not let any disrespect slide, as she is the queen.
It's worth noting that despite the theories circulating online, some users have urged people not to jump to conclusions. They argue that Doja Cat and Minaj have shown love and admiration for each other in the past, and there's no reason to assume they have any bad blood. It's clear that fans have strong opinions on the matter, but at the end of the day, only the artists involved truly know what happened.
