The Thank Me Later rapper co-starred as Nicki's love interest in her "Moment 4 Life" video, adding more intrigue to their flirtatious union. But when the Pink Friday star explained how she managed to reel Drizzy in for the clip, she proved to be a pretty demanding lady.
"It wasn't hard to get Drake. Drake does what I tell him to do," Nicki laughed to MTV News' Sway during an exclusive interview after the "Moment 4 Life" premiere. "I'm Nicki Minaj! You know Drake does what I tell him to do."
The two have carried on a playful romance over Twitter, in interviews and in song for some time now. But the two Lil Wayne protégés have a strong friendship, according to Nicki.
Out of her multiple videos in support of Pink Friday, she said she was the most comfortable with Drake as a co-star over the leads in the other clips.
"That energy is amazing," she said. "I just have a special place for him. He always makes me feel like it's OK. You know, just chill, relax, jokes. It's never to the point where I don't want to be there anymore, 'Let's wrap this up.' Having Drake there, it felt like we could have shot a second day for this video, and I could be fine. He's someone I look up to, he got a head start. So he's able to tell me things I don't know and I can confide in him."
And like siblings, she also admitted, the two can be competitive despite their camaraderie.
"I'mma try to body you on this track but I love you to death," she described of their kinship. "It's dope."
