UPDATE: Official visual added above.
Remy Ma and Lil’ Kim’s anxiously-awaited collaboration “Wake Me Up” has arrived.
Rapping over a sample of Roberta Flack’s 1969 song “Hey, That’s No Way to Say Goodbye” and heavy drums, Remy shows off her gritty style throughout the record.
“If Peter Piper pecked ’em, I bet you Remy ducked ’em/I told you not to touch ’em/It’s not up for discussion.”, she raps. Although Kim doesn’t deliver a verse, she handles a solid hook.
The excitement surrounding the song had a lot to do with whether Remy would take another jab at Nicki Minaj. While she doesn’t mention Nicki’s name, there are a few bars throughout that can be interpreted as shots. “I heard he lay that d*ck, you let him filet that fish/ You just met him, how he bae that quick?”
Again, no names mentioned but by the tension between the two, it’s easy to assume that it was a shot at Nicki.
On the flipside, Lil Kim assures us that the record isn’t about Nicki in a Hot 97 interview. “My mind ain’t on ol’ girl or anything else. I don’t care about that,” she said.
With the release of “Wake Me Up,” it looks like we’ll finally receive a new album from Remy Ma soon. Check out the latest cut below and let us know your thoughts.
