Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande team up once again for new song, “Bed.” This is the third single from Minaj’s upcoming fourth studio Queen. The BFF duo is back with a catchy, sex-positive song.
Minaj and Grande have been collaborating consistently since “Bang Bang” with Jessie J in 2014. Ever since, they have become a musical match made in heaven with one of the cutest friendships. “Bed” marks their fourth collaboration. Grande highlights the opening and chorus of the song, “Got a bed with your name on it / Got a kiss with your name on it.”

You know the love is real when u send ARIANA fkng GRANDE an UNRETOUCHED #Bed snippet & she gives you the green 💡to post it. Ugh!!!!! @grizzleearts thank you pooh bear!!! #Bed is out now!!!! #Queen PRE-ORDER is out NOW!!!! @arianagrande is out now!!!! Fukkkkkkkkkkk agdgbnkssgxeokjgdewsgk
Minaj’s lyrics are witty on this track. “I’ma do everything I said I’m gonna do / Pretty little body, it look better on you.” She also shouts out Zayn Malik, who she revealed she did want on the song originally.
There is no doubt that “Bed” is an enjoyable song but it just never really gets there. There is a lack of spotlight or climax. The track is repetitive and the beat is more on the mellower side. This led to mixed reactions from fans. Minaj promised on Twitter that the song would be better than “Get On Your Knees” from The Pinkprint in 2014. Some fans were calling Minaj a “liar” on social media while others were praising the song.
At first nicki said BED was better than get on your knees. I was skeptical because GOYK had good lyrics and flow to it. After I listened to BED, I understand why she said it was better. This is such a sexy and fun song that I needed from nicki! I love you bby!!! @NICKIMINAJ
