Nicki Minaj has admitted that she is not concerned whether she has featured artists on her album.
The rapper, who is currently working on her debut LP Pink Friday, said that it is more important to showcase herself as an artist than worry about who will feature on the songs.
Discussing the record with Honey, she said: “I haven’t confirmed any aritsts yet. I’ve done so many features so far that right now I want to sing myself.
“If I happen to have features on the album then I do, but I’m not going into my album thinking ‘OK, I’m going to get this this one and that one’. If it happens, it happens, and if it doesn’t it doesn’t.”
She continued: “I believe that my work is so strong for this album that whether there is a feature on there or not, it’s going to do amazing.”
The singer also claimed that there is not as much hype around her as people make out.
“People act like I have this really big buzz but I don’t see it,” she said.
“To be honest, it’s not as big as people act like it is. I have to do so much work to promote – more work than other people because people expect me to lose. They think I’m one-dimensional.”
Minaj releases her debut single ‘Your Love’ in the UK on September 20.
