Lil Nas X and Nicki Minaj announce brand partnership deals

Lil Nas X and Nicki Minaj announce brand partnership deals

Lil Nas X and Nicki Minaj have both signed big brand partnership deals. Lil Nas has partnered with M&Ms on a mission to bring people together using the power of music and sweets. Nicki Minaj, meanwhile, is aiming to help gambling platform MaximBet convince more women to waste their money on sports betting. But which is more achievable?

Hard to say really, although it’s a little easier to work out what Minaj’s new brand partnership actually involves. Whereas with the Lil Nas / M&Ms tie up… well, the press release says that the musician and sweets brand will “leverage the power of music to lay the groundwork for a new platform that brings people together to celebrate music, build connections, and enjoy more moments of fun through a series of initiatives set to kick off later this year”.

Allison Miazga-Bedrick – Senior Brand Director at M&Ms parent company Mars Wrigley – attempts to explain further: “In the world Mars wants tomorrow, society is inclusive. And through the M&Ms brand we’re committed to inspiring moments of connection and fun by encouraging a deeper sense of belonging”. Yeah, that’s just waffle, isn’t it?

“Music is one of the most powerful tools to bring people together”, she adds. “Like our iconic M&Ms brand, music sparks nostalgia, memories, and fun and we are THRILLED to be able to partner with one of the most trailblazing artists in the world, Lil Nas X, to help us further cement M&Ms’ role within entertainment”.

Still not really sure what any of this involves, but my guess is some sort of website with a social element and some video content. If you were hoping Lil Nas X might be on hand to provide some clarity, well, his quote suggests that he has absolutely no idea what’s happening either.

“M&Ms is iconic and I’m a huge fan of the brand”, he says. “I’m excited to work with them on some really cool projects this year that are as colourful as they are”.

Sure. OK. Let’s move beyond meaningless marketing waffle to the specifics of this Nicki Minaj deal. Which is easier to understand. In that we’re told that the Minaj / MaximBet alliance will involve the musician and brand collaborating on merchandise, parties and fan experiences that seek to combine entertainment, sports, celebrity and, of course, betting. Though Minaj also gets some of those made up job titles that used to be super popular with music brand partnerships.

Specifically, Minaj is becoming an ambassador and strategic advisor for and to MaximBet – which is an offshoot of men’s magazine Maxim. Currently live in twelve US states and the Canadian province of Ontario, it wants to broaden its market by getting more ladies involved. Men have obviously long been happy to throw their money in the bin when it comes to online betting, but seemingly women are still a ‘growth market’ in this domain.

“I don’t think I’ve ever been prouder of a collaboration”, says Minaj, dubiously. “Merging business savvy power moves with my natural, creative, sexy, fun, and fashion-forward expression is just so spot on as it relates to this partnership. I’m ready to fully step into my potential as a young, influential queen, and owner and open doors for others to dream big. Get ready for the sexy parties and remember: scared money don’t make NO MONEY! HA! Place your bets! Let’s GO!”

And that’s how you do it. MaximBet CEO Daniel Graetzer adds: “Nicki is best known around the world as a mega superstar, but we know her as a brilliant businesswoman. Her role as a strategic advisor to MaximBet will be invaluable to us. She’s built one of the most powerful brands in the world, her own, and she’s applying that same savvy and creativity to our lifestyle sports betting brand. I couldn’t be more excited to be working with her – she is creative, smart, passionate and bold. There is no one better suited to helping us take this form of entertainment mainstream”.

In terms of made up job titles, there’s one more to mention. Because Minaj isn’t just getting on board with MaximBet, she’s also taking up a new role at Maxim magazine as part of the deal too. She is now a Creative Director for the publication, which, says the press release, “will enable her to influence editorial, photography, profiles, covers and future events for the iconic publisher”. Uh huh.

“We are THRILLED to partner with Nicki Minaj”, says Sardar Biglari, Editor-In-Chief of Maxim. “She is an extraordinary entrepreneur and the leading artist of her generation, a combination that will be transformative for Maxim”.

So that’s all great. I’m so happy for everyone involved. Especially for anyone who has any idea what Lil Nas X is doing with M&Ms. Nicki Minaj’s deal – by the way – also serves to promote her upcoming tour dates and new album ‘NM5’. Which I guess – by me simply mentioning them here – just happened. See, the system works!

Doja Cat talking about Nicki Minaj on her Elle Interview!

The ‘Kiss Me More’ songstress is the latest superstar to grace the cover of the coveted magazine, Elle.

Lensed by Adrienne Raqeul, she stuns across several eclectic looks. However, in the latest issue, she gives a compelling story as well. In it, she talks everything from Nicki Minaj, to taking a break, and so much more.

On Nicki Minaj:

“I think her as a businesswoman really inspired me.The way Nicki can carry herself felt almost alien to me, because I was kind of a little runty kid, trapped in her room, just watching YouTube videos. & back then I was like, Damn, that’s Dope.”

Nicki Minaj Signs With Azoffs’ Full Stop Management (EXCLUSIVE)

Nicki Minaj Signs With Azoffs’ Full Stop Management (EXCLUSIVE)

Nicki Minaj has signed a management deal with Irving and Jeffrey Azoff’s Full Stop Management, sources tell Variety. Earlier this year, the rapper/singer parted ways with Gee Roberson and Cortez Bryant and Blueprint/ Maverick Management, who had represented her for the majority of her career.

The move is an interesting one for several reasons. Full Stop handles a wide range of artists including Travis Scott and Gwen Stefani, and it could be argued that Minaj, who is 36 and has been a widely recognized recording artist and celebrity for more than a decade, could reap the benefits of Scott’s mainstream hip-hop following, as well as the later-in-career moves that the management team has brought to Stefani, such as a Las Vegas residency and television appearances — although Minaj did serve a controversial stint on “American Idol” in 2013, where she feuded with fellow judge and diva Mariah Carey.

It is also interesting because Minaj criticized Azoff bitterly last summer in the wake of her “Queen” tour’s postponement, calling him the “c—sucker of the day” on her Beats 1 radio show and accusing him of launching a “smear campaign about my tour, and contacted people in the media to spread negative things about my tour.” The tour ultimately proceeded, with some bumps, in Europe, although the U.S. leg was rescheduled with her as the special guest on Chris Brown’s forthcoming North American tour in the late summer.

Azoff declined comment at the time, but this would not be the first time in his 50-year career that he buried the hatchet with an artist with whom he’d previously feuded.

A rep for Minaj did not immediately grant Variety‘s request for comment.
