Sometimes musical talent runs in the family, but who knew that Nicki Minaj’s mother had a little something going on as well? As Nicki preps her third solo album, her mom Carol Maraj is sharing some new EDM-inspired gospel music.
A snippet of the new song “God’s Been Good” can be found on Carol Maraj’s SoundCloud page, and it finds her singing praises, over upbeat electronic production. Guess it’s safe to say that she won’t be releasing music with lyrics as controversial as her daughter’s.
If a retweet on Carol Maraj’s Twitter account is any indication, more music will be on the way. “Update: Fame Star Records (@famemoneyinc) will be signing Carol Maraj in collaboration with MDM Music Group (@MDMMusicGroup),” a message from earlier in the week read.
Nicki hasn’t shared the song on any of her social media accounts, but surely mom got her blessing before dropping the track? Listen above.

Nicki will be featured on the upcoming compilation album Young Money: Rise of an Empire, which is due on March 11. She hasn’t shared a release date for her upcoming solo LP just yet, only confirming that she’s been back in the studio recording the project.
