It seems as if everyone is jumping on Nicki Minaj‘s bandwagon these days! According to MTV News, Jay-Z was so impressed with the Young Money rapper that he went out of his way to recommend her for Robin Thicke‘s new single “Shakin’ It 4 Daddy.”

“It was Jay’s idea,” Thicke said of the “Shakin’ It 4 Daddy” collabo. “We were in the studio and I played him the whole album. He was like, ‘You should get Nicki Minaj on that. She’s got that voice. She’s got that swag.’ So I leaned over and was like, ‘Somebody get Nicki Minaj on the phone! Jay-Z said so!’ Next thing you know, we called Nicki. She was excited. But once we told her it was Jay-Z’s idea to get her on the track, she started screaming on the phone. She was all excited. She’s a super, super talent. I can’t wait to do a video with Nicki. There’s a power in her. It’s not just that she’s sexy and that’s the only way she can get you to like her. She’s got charm — not just sex. Some women may use sex to get what they want; others have charm. She’s got charm.”

Wow, we must admit that Nicki Minaj is most definitely doing her thing now. Like her labelmate Drake, she hasn’t even released an official album yet and she’s already the hottest female rapper in the game right now!
