On Sunday, Nicki Minaj announced her collab with rapper Yung Bleu for their upcoming song ‘”Love in the Way.” The single is due to be released on September 16. The song follows the Queen of Rap’s chart-topping “Super Freaky Girl,” which dropped on Aug. 12.
Nicki Minaj unveiled the collab with a post on Instagram featuring her and Bleu standing alongside one another. “#LoveInTheWay F R I D A Y @bleuvandross,” the caption read.

“Love In the Way” follows Nicki’s hit track “Super Freaky Girl,” which topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart in August. The song earned Minaj her first solo No. 1 hit song. She previously topped the Hot 100 with her appearances on the remix to Doja Cat’s “Say So,” as well as “Trollz” with 6ix9ine.
Recently, Nicki also released the “Super Freaky Girl (Queen Mix),” a new cut of the song filled with collaborations. The lineup includes JT and BIA, as well as Malibu Mitch, Katie Got Bandz and Akbar V. The remix arrives less than a month after its initial release as the lead track from the rapper’s greatest-hits compilation, Queen Radio: Volume 1.
