Just when you finally managed to get Nicki Minaj’s ass-worshipping 2014 smash “Anaconda” out of your head, another version of the song has creeped up and bitten you harder than an snake with earworm-inducing venom.
AnonXmous, one of the producers of the original track (along with Da Internz and Polow da Don) released what he says is the O.G. version of Nicki’s highest-charting single to date. It surfaced Thursday (Dec. 10), ahead of his Hallucinagens mixtape, which will reportedly feature the alternate track.
Dubbed “Anaconda 2.0,” the new version boasts a slower beat, some completely new lines from Nicki, and a partial verse lifted from her killer feature on Ciara’s 2013 track “I’m Out Single” (she repeatedly raps “I got a big fat ass big di--s follow”).
Stream the alternate version below, and then compare it to the original (or just use it as an excuse to watch Nicki grind up on Drake one more time).
