Nicki Minaj Gets Freaky With Boyfriend In ‘Megatron’ Music Video [Watch]

After a lengthy hiatus on social media, Nicki Minaj has returned with new music and a video to accompany it.

The “Queen” rapper dropped the visuals for the dancehall-inspired track “Megatron” on Friday (June 21), and it feature Nicki partying at a club, dancing in front of a green Lambo—which she later sets on fire—and getting a bit frisky in the sauna with her current boyfriend, Kenneth Petty.

Prior to the video’s release, the hip-hop star teased her new song in a sexy clip showing her laying in bed with Petty, who can’t keep his hands of her. He is seen rubbing her stomach before working his way up to her chest — see the Twitter embed clip below.

“What’s up with the tummy rubbing? You pregnant huh,” one fan commented on the post.

Not only does Nicki call Kenneth her “husband” in the 47-second clip, she also whips out a gun — because they were about to go to the “shooting range.”

“When morning wood leads to #Megatron promo. 😩😂 who’s ready for MIDNIGHT?!!!! 😜” Nicki said in the caption of the video, teasing her forthcoming track.

As noted by Us Weekly, Petty was convicted of attempted rape in 1995 and pleaded guilty to manslaughter 11 years later.

Fans immediately noted that the title of Nicki’s new song is a nod to Future’s 2018 track “Transformer,” in which she raps:

I’m still the bad guy, I am a Decepticon

Some call me Nicki but some call me Megatron

I’m stoppin’ bags and I don’t need a red octagon.

Could “Megatron” be a sneak peek of Nicki’s fifth studio album? Fans seem to think so.

Last week, it was revealed Nicki wouldn’t appear on Chris Brown’s INDIGOAT Tour after all. She also dropped her bass-heavy track collab with Trina entitled “Baps” (Badass Pretty Sags),  which you can listen to below.

Ariana, Nicki and More Stars Who Have Surprisingly Never Won a Grammy

Close, but no cigar. The 61st annual Grammy Awards are right around the corner, and the question of who will take home a trophy is at the forefront of everyone’s minds.

Kendrick Lamar and Drake lead this year’s nominations with eight and seven, respectively, while Cardi B, Maren Morris and Lady Gaga scored five nods each. On Monday, January 28, what was touted on social media as a list of 2019 winners leaked online, but Us Weekly confirmed that the list was false.

“There is no legitimacy to this,” a Recording Academy spokesperson told Us on the following day. “Grammy Awards results are not shared, even with Recording Academy staff members, until the day of the Grammy Awards ceremony, when names of the recipients are delivered by [accounting firm] Deloitte in sealed envelopes.”

That being said, musicians who are nominated at the 2019 Grammys can do nothing but wait until the show airs on Sunday, February 10, to see if their names are called. Many artists such as Demi Lovato, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello would become first-time winners if they are given a trophy at this year’s show.

But winning a Grammy Award is easier said than done. Some stars have been nominated for Grammys more than a dozen times, but have yet to hear their name called during the event.

From Nicki Minaj and Snoop Dogg to Queen and Katy Perry, keep scrolling to see which artists have shockingly never won a Grammy.

Nicki Minaj and Cardi B Call a Truce After Hours of Intense Feuding Online

Nicki Minaj and Cardi B appear to have put an end to weeks of mutual insults culminating in a day of back and forth that began with an altercation at a New York Fashion Week party in September.

Video from the event hosted by Harper’s Bazar appeared to show Cardi being escorted out by security with a large bump on her head after she reportedly threw a shoe at Minaj. Since then, the pair have been trading barbs over social media, radio and in the press.

But now they have agreed to take a break from the spat, with Minaj tweeting Tuesday morning that she wanted to focus on “positive things only”:

Cardi then posted the tweet to her Instagram, adding her own pledge to be positive.

The dispute had reached dramatic proportions late on Monday, with Cardi posting ten videos of herself on Instagram in which she accused Cardi of leaking her phone number in the wake of the Fashion Week encounter.

She also suggested she was considering suing Minaj for “defamation of character” after her claims that Cardi had bought her way into charts by paying radio stations to play her songs.

Now, though, it looks like the spat won’t be moving from Instagram to the courtroom any time soon.
