BLEU Collaborates with Nicki Minaj, Shares Broken Emotions
Multi-platinum musician BLEU collaborated with Nicki Minaj on a new single titled “Love In The Way” which is already available on all music streaming services via music label EMPIRE.
Showcasing BLEU's musical production talent, “Love In The Way” features Amapiano-style drumming (a South African house music style) over a synth layer, bringing the emotional sadness and heartbreak that BLEU and Nicki Minaj convey throughout the song. Featuring a vocal sample from Sam Tompkins' song “Whole,” “Love In The Way” offers an escape for all listeners.
As the first single from BLEU's latest album, “Love In The Way” is a clear testament to BLEU's growth as a musician; starting from the beginning of his career in the music industry under the name Yung Bleu, until now as BLEU with a refreshing sound. BLEU's latest song is the start of a new chapter for the GRAMMY® Award-nominated musician who has also collaborated with a number of well-known hip-hop musicians including Lil Wayne and Megan Thee Stallion.
Nicki Minaj recently released the Queen Mix version of the single "Super Freaky Girl", which also features Maliibu Mitch, BIA, JT, Katie Got Bandz, and Akbar V. With the release of “Love In The Way”, the euphoria of new music material from The Nicki Minaj that fans around the world have been feeling lately continues.
BLEU also released the MV for "Love In The Way" which perfectly visualizes the emotions of the new song. "Madly in love with everything about this video." said Nicki Minaj about the music video for her collaboration with BLEU on her Instagram.
Hailing from Alabama, United States, BLEU first took the world's attention with the song "Miss It" in 2017. In a short time, BLEU managed to bring itself into the ranks of musicians who have successfully built a global fanbase as a rapper and R&B singer.
Over the past few years BLEU has collaborated with a number of world-renowned musicians including Kehlani ("Beautiful Lies"), H.E.R ("Tired Of You"), and A Boogie Wit A Hoodie ("Ghetto Love Birds"). Her song with Drake, "You're Mines Still", took her to the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the first time. The song is included in BLEU's acclaimed 2021 album, 'Moon Boy'. The album 'Moon Boy' successfully occupied position 1 on Billboard's Independent Albums chart. BLEU then took home the Best New Artist trophy at the 2021 BET Hip-Hop Awards and the Best New Hip-Hop Artist trophy at the 2022 iHeart Music Awards.
With the release of “Love In The Way”, BLEU is officially closing this summer as she enters a new chapter in her career.
