Carly Rae Jepsen Partners With Nicki Minaj To Record A Remix
Just a couple of months ago, Carly Rae Jepsen released a new single about breaking up, called “Tonight I’m Getting Over You.” The song is a little more serious than Jepsen’s biggest hit, “Call Me Maybe,” but despite this, it’s still pretty peppy and now it’s getting a makeover, courtesy of Nicki Minaj.
Jepsen’s manager, Scooter Braun, initially announced the rapper and the singer have worked together earlier this week. According to MTV News, the two have put together a remix of “Tonight I’m Getting Over You.” Though we haven’t heard snippets of the remix yet, Braun has also spoken out to say that Minaj has added a verse to the track.
While I am a fan of Minaj’s totally solo work, she has produced plenty of remixes and collaborations in the past. One of her more famous remixes is a redone version of Justin Bieber’s popular song, “Beauty and the Beat.” She’s also been involved with other collaborations, including French Montana’s “Freaks” and her song “Fly,” which Rihanna contributed vocals to. Between all of this collaborating and American Idol, Minaj is a busy woman, especially since she is also set to appear in the upcoming film The Other Woman.
Jepsen, on the other hand, is still milking the success of her sophomore studio album, Kiss. “Tonight I’m Getting Over You” is the fourth single off of the album, which dropped in September of last year. Hopefully, we’ll be getting new music from both women, soon, but for now a remix will have to suffice.
