Last week, Big Sean made major headlines when a remix to his popular track, “Ass,” leaked to the internet. The remix featured a verse from Nicki Minaj. Initially, many assumed it was an unofficial remix. However, the remix has been sent to the radio as an official single off Big Sean’s Finally Famous: The Album.
Many have since questioned how Big Sean and Nicki Minaj teamed up for the record. It turns out, Nicki Minaj was already a major fan of the song. Knowing this, Big Sean called her to see if she wanted to be featured on the remix. Upon being asked about the collaboration, the femcee quickly agreed.
Big Sean also revealed he and Nicki Minaj are great friends, all music aside. With “Ass” already receiving radio play, Kevin Liles and Sean’s manager told him to find someone to do a remix. The remix would then be used as the official radio single. With his relationship with Nicki Minaj and her love for the song, connecting the dots was an easy feat.
