Nicki Minaj has a 'work twin' and that person is also a superstar music artist named Beyonce.
The two artists worked together on Beyonce's remix of the song "Flawless" which turned into one of the most spectacular songs of 2014. Later on in 2014 Beyonce brought her swagger to Nicki Minaj's single "Feeling Myself" and the single was loved by almost everyone who heard it.
The Pinkprint album star revealed that in recording "Feeling Myself" she felt the pressure to recreate the magic that people felt with Beyonce's song "Flawless" and during the process of working together she found someone just like herself: a over-thinking, hands-on professional who is incredibly competitive and wants to create not good but great music (Time - February 4). She described the experience as very educational and it has some music observers predicting that there will be many more instances over the course of their careers where these two superstars work together.
An interesting aspect of Nicki Minaj's interview was her admitting that she rarely comes across other artists who are perfectionists like her. Some fans and music observers noted how this is probably one of the things that makes her so great and is overlooked by much of the media: her work ethic and the fact that her fingerprints are often on every aspect of her music.
Nicki Minaj disclosed in the Time interview that she felt 'pressure' to recreate the magic of the "Flawless" song". For many music lovers and executives that is an example of why she is considered one of the top female music artists. She is on top of the rap game when it comes to female artists and yet her competitive streak is such that when teamed with Beyonce their focus was to match the magic of their last collaborative hit. They did not come to the music studio to just 'record', they came together to create something great which is what often happens when great performers work together.
Nicki Minaj has found her twin in Beyonce and as she learned from the experience, the great artists often work in similar ways and with a work ethic that average person often cannot relate to and might consider insane but really is just part of the process to making great music.
