Nicki Minaj has revealed that she declined featuring on Doja Cat’s ‘Get Into It (Yuh)’ for fear of not bringing ‘anything to it.’

We’ve all heard ‘Get Into It (Yuh)’ right? Oh, it’s only the song of the summer, which really is a pattern with Doja Cat. Well, turns out, she offered Nicki Minaj a chance to feature on the track, which the latter turned down.

In a Twitter Spaces conversation over the weekend, Minaj specified why she said no to the viral track: because she thought she couldn’t bring anything to it.

“The truth is, [Doja Cat] asked me to get on that song,” said Minaj, as reported by HipHopDX.

“It’s not that I’m too busy at all. It’s just, there were middle people involved in that situation so I had told her, if it was like how me and BIA were direct and we dealt with each other directly, it would be different. But I didn’t love that song because I didn’t think I could bring anything to it.” she clarified.

Minaj also revealed that ‘Get Into It (Yuh)’ was the second song she had received from Doja’s team that couldn’t work out. When she asked them to send something else, however, they never replied.

It isn’t anything personal, though, as Minaj was quick to clarify. If she doesn’t think she has anything ‘unique’ to contribute to a track, it is likely she’ll pass. According to her, “I don’t wanna just do shit just to do shit.”

“There are a lot of artists — I’m talking about artists that I really like — that ask for us to do a feature. And I just told all of them like, ‘Yo, let’s really get the right thing.’ ’Cause right now, it’s a different everything for me.” Minaj said.

“I don’t wanna just do shit just to do shit. And especially with artists that I love and stuff, I really wanna make a moment with them that’s gonna last.” she said.
