- Nicki Minaj unveiled her impression of Adele during a recent appearance on “The Late Late Show.”
- “I sort of have to think Black lady in London,” Minaj said, calling the singer “so expressive.”
- Adele previously imitated Minaj during an episode of “Carpool Karaoke” in 2016.
Nicki Minaj unveiled her spot-on imitation of Adele’s accent, six years after the crooner made headlines for her rendition of Minaj’s iconic “Monster” rap.
During a recent appearance on “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” the Queens native was asked to give her best impression of Adele, who grew up in the Tottenham district of London.
“Alright, in order for me to channel Adele, I sort of have to think Black lady in London, right?” Minaj began, gesturing dramatically with her manicured hands.
“Because the thing is, normally everybody knows, my British accent is sort of like a posh white lady, a rich white lady,” she continued. “But with Adele, I sort of have to transform. Like you know, she might’ve used to sell crack and maybe she used to be hustling nickels and dimes in the hood and then got her big break.”
Minaj also described the “Easy On Me” singer as “always so expressive.”
Back in 2016, Adele was featured on Corden’s ongoing series “Carpool Karaoke,” when she delivered an energetic performance of Minaj’s verse in “Monster,” the hit collaboration with Jay-Z, Rick Ross, and Ye (formerly known as Kanye West).
Minaj raved about the clip while chatting with Corden.
“You guys made such an amazing freaking tag team,” she said. “That made my day, my year. I probably got 1,000 phone calls about that one thing.”
After teasing a possible film project with fellow rapper 50 Cent, Minaj confirmed that her new album will be released this year.
“It’ll be out before the summertime,” she said.
Minaj previously said she planned to retire from music to focus on her family, shortly before she was quietly married to Kenneth Petty in late 2019. The couple welcomed their first child together in 2020.
