Nicki Minaj has delivered her latest single “Super Freaky Girl” along with a brand new episode of Queen Radio, where she spoke to Drake and Lil Wayne.

Clocking in at just under three minutes, the track hears Minaj sample Rick James’ famed 1981 hit “Super Freak” for the second time in her career; she also utilized the cut for “Dilly Dally,” which appeared in her 2007 mixtape Playtime Is Over. The rapper previously teased the track as the arrival of “Nick James,” writing on Twitter, “#NickJames is coming to do what the girls SHOULD’VE done. #NickJames is coming to show the girls why they should’ve just sat there & ate their foods. #NickJames is coming to show the boys how to REALLY gag the girls. Pauz #NickJames is coming to restore hope in mankind.”

In addition to the single, Minaj also debuted a new episode of Queen Radio with Drake and Lil Wayne as guests just after they held a Young Money reunion at Drake’s OVO World Weekend. Of the conversations they had, Drizzy touched on the possibility of retirement where he stated, “I’m not at that point where I even consider that being an option. One of the best feelings I have in my life is completing a song or project. And by the way those things are painful as well. A lot of nerves, a lot of confidence wavering. But I feel like I’m reaching a new level of fun. I’ve reached a new level of comfortability where I want to try things. Like this last album, I put out something I wanted to do to challenge myself,” while Weezy says he never wants to change anything about Young Money, “I don’t have the time because I’m steady thinking ahead. Do I wish I did anything different – hell no. I don’t live with regrets.”
