Show Nivea the money.
The Carter V had a number of notable features including Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, and Nicki Minaj. One of the most surprising features was from Wayne’s ex, Nivea, on “Dope New Gospel.” The track was allegedly expected to feature Drake, but of course, that did not happen. According to Tunechi, his verse was not able to clear before the release of the album. Nivea stopped by the Breakfast Club recently to speak on her contributions to Carter V.
According to Nivea, the song was written a year prior to the album’s announcement for release.
“We did that song a year ago,” said Nivea. “I wrote the hook and sent it back and he said ‘I love it!'”
After sending the song back to Weezy, Nivea claims she did not hear any word about it, until a month before the Carter V release. When Wayne called to inform Nivea that she had made the album, she was ecstatic. Although she has yet to be paid for the feature, she says there is no malice between herself and Wayne.
Nivea and Wayne were engaged twice, but called off the engagement both times. The “Don’t Mess with My Man” artist gave birth to their son, Neal Carter in 2009. Nivea says Weezy has never missed child support and has always taken care of her and their son. Hopefully, Wayne is not following in the footsteps of Birdman’s history of not paying people. As a result, she knows that she will receive compensation for her feature very soon.
Currently, Lil Wayne holds 19 of the 50 tracks spots on the Billboard’s Streaming Song chart. In addition, 22 songs debut on the Billboard Hot 100 chart upon its release.
