Wake Me Up

Album: 7 Winters, 6 Summers (2017)
  • Remy Ma teamed with Lil Kim for this track. Both rappers have had beef with Nicki Minaj, so it's no surprise there are some barbed lines aimed at the Queen Barb.

    I'll say it to your face, don't gotta relay that s--t
    If Nick-ole a Kid-man, OJ that b---h!
  • The song samples Lil' Kim's 1996 track "Queen Bitch." "I wanted to pay homage to Kim," Remy Ma said during a Beats 1 interview. "I feel like she is like the Madonna of the hip-hop world to me. Her style is iconic, and I wanted to show homage and pay homage to that, so when I called her, I told her, I'm like, 'Listen, I want you on this record, but I just want you to be Kim. I want you to be the girl that was squatting down in a leopard thong, be that Kim.'"
