“Darling Nicki (Minaj)” was uploaded to Beyoncé’s YouTube channel to promote the video for their “Feeling Myself” performance at the Barclays Center Tidal X concert, and features behind-the-scenes footage of the duo rehearsing.
As for the lyrics themselves, they’re decidedly more PG than Prince’s originals.
Here’s a look at Prince’s verse:
I knew a girl named Nikki,
I guess you could say she was a sex fiend.
I met her in a hotel lobby
Masturbating with a magazine.
She said, “How’d you like to waste some time?”
And I could not resist when I saw little Nikki grind.
And then Beyoncé’s update:
I met this girl named Nicki,
I guess you could say she was the rap queen.
I met her in the studio lobby,
But her booty looked bigger in the magazines.
She said, “Bey will you jump on this song of mine?”
How could I resist when I heard little Nicki rhyme?
A match made in heaven.
