Taking to her Instagram Stories, Nicki Minaj picked out the two songs alongside ‘For Nothin’, and ‘Changed on Me’ as her favorite tracks on the album.
“This Fivio Foreign album rlly hitting the matha**n spot. Soooo SOLID. Sonically authenitc & well thought out. Cohesive body of work with a signature sound that is very true to where he’s from,” she wrote.
Nicki Minaj added: “Kayccy is [fire] on both of his songs.”
