Madonna’s (Not So Subtle) Hint That She’s Collaborating With Nicki Minaj

This is how rumors get started, which knowing Madge’s notorious way of making news, seems completely in character. Madonna fans started chattering late last night when she posted a picture of her and fellow femme fatale Nicki Minaj on her Instagram account with the cryptic message “We go Hard or we go Home we Gon Do this all night long! #werk.

Nicki and the Material Girl are more than mere acquaintances, stretching back to Madonna’s 2012 “Give Me All Your Luvin’” single and their subsequent Super Bowl halftime show (which you probably remember as the time you were introduced to M.I.A.).  Could it be that the two are working on an upcoming track for Madonna’s 2015 album? There’s already a cavalcade of collaborators rumored to be participating and we can’t wait to find out who will make the final cut.

For her part, Nicki ain’t saying much but reposted the photo with the message “My trip to New York isn’t the same unless I bump into the Queen. #BitchItsMadonna.” We can’t wait to see what these two have in store. #fingerscrossed.

Hear Madonna’s MDNA producer Martin Solveig talk about introducing her to Nicki Minaj and how their Super Bowl halftime performance came together.
