BIA is in a state of gratitude after collaborating with Nicki Minaj on the remix to her hit single “Whole Lotta Money.” On Friday (July 9), she took to Twitter to express her appreciation for the feature and the time she was able to spend with the Queens native.
“I really got the opportunity to bond and write with Nicki,” she tweeted. “Man, my heart is so full right now. This is a bucket list moment. So iconic. So timeless…This shit is crazy. God is so good.”
BIA’s tweet comes hours after the release of the “Whole Lotta Money (Remix),” which came as a surprise to many.
Nicki shared the news on an Instagram Live version of Queen Radio after informing fans that she had a “very important” announcement earlier in the week.
“There’s something I URGENTLY need to share w| you guys,” the “Seeing Green” emcee wrote on Tuesday (July 6). “I’ll go LIVE on IG THURSDAY @ 10:30PM EST No, I won’t be late. In fact, I’ll be early. This is VERY VERY VERY IMPORTANT. Love you guys so much.” In the days following that tweet, she consistently reminded her fan group to tune in for the news.
As promised, Nicki hopped on Instagram on Thursday night (July 8), updated the Barbz on her son, Papa Bear, and entertained them with an interesting Q&A session featuring Lil Wayne. Toward the end of her live, she introduced BIA, talked about her admiration of the “Whole Lotta Money” single and revealed that she hopped on the remix. She also opened up about how it great it felt to collaborate with another woman rapper before ending the live and giving fans an opportunity to check the song out.
Following the track’s release, BIA took to Twitter to thank Nicki for jumping on her record. “I love you @NICKIMINAJ. I know you didn’t have to and you did, and you will always have my heart for that.” she wrote. “Nothing will ever change that. Thank you.”
