I didn't know what to expect from Nicki Minaj's new single, "Only," featuring Lil Wayne, Drake, and Chris Brown, when she first announced it over the weekend. I expected it to be a great song, sure, but wasn't too certain about much else.
One thing I didn't expect: Lil Wayne and Drake getting explicit about what they'd like to do to Nicki, and her doing the same.
But I probably should have known better. The breadwinners of the Young Money family have a history of flirting and straight up talking dirty to each other.
