Nicki Minaj made headlines on Sunday night following a performance of her new song, “Bed of Lies.” Minaj debuted the track at the MTV European Music Awards where she also served as the host.
The rapper and Safaree Samuels recently called it quits and there’s speculation that “Bed of Lies” is about her relationship with her now ex-boyfriend. On the track, Minaj raps about contemplating suicide and about a partner who is using her.
“You could never make eye contact / Everything you got was based off of my contacts / You a fraud, but I’mma remain icon-stat / Balenciaga’s on my boots with the python strap / You was caught up in the rush, and you was caught up in the thrill of it / You was with me way before I hit a quarter mil’ in it / Put you in the crib and you ain’t never pay a bill in it / I was killin’ it, man you got me poppin’ pills in it / I told Baby hit you, I said this dude buggin’ Cause I was doing it for us / I told em fuck the public / Couldn’t believe that I was home alone contemplating overdosin’ / all the postin’, no more toastin’ over oceans / They say you don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone / They say that your darkest hour comes before your dawn / but there was something I should’ve asked all along.”
Hit the jump to watch Nicki perform the song along with “Anaconda.”
