Nicki Minaj sat for a no-holds-barred interview with manager Irving Azoff, talking new music dropping, tour, marriage, entrepreneurship and everything else. The appearance seems to cement a tradition in recent years of having a superstar interview session being a key element of the Pollstar Live!2020 Keynote.
Azoff started things off with a bang, too, noting their walkup music and talking about what a great time the present is for hip-hop music and especially touring. Saying he’d probably upset Republic Records chief Monte Lipman, he announced “we’re going to leak the single later tonight or tomorrow (Friday) – it’s a setup track, not a single. But it’s new music.”
