Nicki Minaj agrees “Essence” should be song of the year at the Grammys

Published

on

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.

UK Rapper who has built a repertoire on trap-type beats using a go-to auto-tune voice preset to rap about his pains, gang life and love for the good life calls on BNXN (fka Buju) as both acts exchange bars on new track, Pray 2 The East.

M Huncho rhymes on always keeping it business whenever dealing with men who are not his G’s and the luxury life that comes with it like “Poppin’ Xanax for the long hour flight / Land in LA made these packs take flight” but takes time out to shout-out his friends locked up in prison, asking them “to just wait on it” as he is very assured they would get released in due time.

BNXN’s verse on Pray 2 The East is strictly money talk with bars referring to him living the comfortable lifestyle and doing whatever he wants on his own will, flexing playing video games like UFC at 3AM in the morning while eating sushi but he doesn’t let the glamour and luxury deter him from his goal of being grounded on the money chase as he sends special praise to his brother and personal DJ, DJ Tillz for always rocking with him on his journey to money and fame.

The song is produced by JAE5 and is the 8th track on “Chasing Euphoria”, M Huncho’s new album to be released on May 20 (tomorrow).
