The self-proclaimed “King of New York” and the “Queen” have found each other, and they aren’t looking for any new friends! Brooklyn’s hitmaker, 6ix9ine, pairs up with Queens’ hitmaker, Nicki Minaj in a new visual for their bouncy new track produced by Murda Beatz, ‘FEFE’. The video shows a very carefree, 6ix9ine and Nicki Minaj, enjoying each others company over ice cream and more in their magical Candyland paradise.
Furthermore, this unexpected collaboration actually makes sense; two colourful personalities, that are continuously scrutinized by the media, but are undeniably still able to produce hit records that keep them at the top of the charts. ‘FEFE’ proves to be another one, in which the usually aggressive 6ix9ine showcases his versatility with a softer more melodic flow, that is complemented perfectly by Nicki Minaj’s, making this track all worth the listen!
