Nicki Minaj is an artist who likes to please her fans, so when she saw them begging for "New Body" to be released, she said she would hit up Kanye West to discuss it.
At this stage in the game, we're all well aware of the power of social media. The internet can bring people together for a variety of reasons, and as millions continue to connect about the recent George Floyd-influenced protests that have swept the nation, others have aided in Nicki Minaj looking into dropping an unreleased track: "New Body" with Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign.

When Kanye West decided not to deliver his highly-anticipated album Yandhi, all of the songs went on the shelf. The project was leaked and fans who grabbed themselves viral copies have been enjoying its tunes, including Ye's song "New Body" featuring Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign. There were rumors that the track would be reimagined as a cleaner, Christian version for Yeezy's Jesus is King, but in the end, "New Body" didn't make it to that tracklist, either. According to reports, Kanye and Nicki couldn't see eye to eye.
"New Body" has gained traction over on TikTok, and we may just see the official version hit streaming services. While watching DJ Boof on Instagram Live, Nicki was spotted in the comments. A few fans asked about "New Body," and she told them that she would contact Kanye to see if he'd agree to release the song. She also mentioned that they shot a music video for the track, as well, while reportedly also saying she's not a fan of the track. Check it out below.
