Nicki Minaj Shows Love to Coi Leray Following 'Blick Blick' Collab: "Wish I Had This Confidence"
Last week, Nicki Minaj and Coi Leray released the viral "Blick Blick" video, the No. 1 video trending on YouTube with nearly six million views since its March 18 release.
Nicki and Coi have been very complimentary of their working relationship, and Nicki showed Coi a lot of love with an Instagram post Tuesday night (March 22), including a checklist of what she believes makes Coi a unique and special talent in hip hop.
“Unique style. Comfortable in her OWN skin & body. Sexy while being completely covered Not afraid to be FUN & playful. Face not looking 20 years older than her real age. STANDS OUT FROM THE CROWD even on the RED CARPET. Wish I had this confidence @ this age. You go mama,” she wrote.
On Tuesday's iHeartRadio Music Awards red carpet, Coi Leray talks about the thrilling experience of working with the Young Money queen. Despite not having an album out, Coi was nominated for two awards, including Best New Hip Hop Artist and TikTok Bop of the Year.
“It was an experience because let me tell you, that girl is so humble and so genuine,” she said. “Because to have someone that’s been here and be so humble and genuine and to be so fire, it don’t get no better than that.”
She says the biggest lesson she learned from working with Nicki Minaj was to always "protect your peace" and to not let anyone take over what you're doing.
Coi Leray is set to release a debut album 'Coi' and is set to arrive on April 8.
