Nigerian Singer, Skales, has revealed in a recent chat that his feature on Major Lazer‘s track, ‘Run Up’, has earned him a working relationship with American rapper, Nicki Minaj as he keeps receiving DMs from her.
In the singer’s words, ‘It’s still crazy to me how I keep getting DMs from her. Nevertheless, I can never give props to anybody else than Diplo of Major Lazer.
‘It was Diplo that hooked us up and he’s the reason why I can communicate with her and share my sound.” He told SouncityTV
‘Run Up’ was first released in January 2017 featuring Nicki Minaj and PartyNextDoor while a remix was done months later featuring Skales, Yung L and Chopstix.
He further revealed that it was never his intention to sign with Banky W’s Empire Mates Entertainment (EME) but financial constraints forced him to join the record label. on SoundCity TV
