Nicki Minaj Reveals What Drake Looks for in a Woman

Drizzy likes it when a woman plays hard to get, says Nicki.

If anyone knows what Drake's looking for in a lady crush, it's Nicki Minaj. She was once the object of the 27-year-old's lyrical affection, and although the two have a platonic relationship, OVO's finest is very close to her heart, the rapper explained in an interview with Kojo & Jade on the U.K.'s Capital Xtra in the Morning Tuesday (June 23). 

"That's my baby," she said responding to a question about collaborating with Drake on her upcoming album,The Pink Print. The YMCMB teammates are trying to get in the studio together, if their schedules approve. "I hope and pray that we'll have one [song] on there," she continued before teasing a new feature from her album that she said will "blow people away."

On the subject of Drake's love life, the "Pills N Potions" rhymer bypassed a rumor that she once called him the "perfect man," stating, "Maybe I was joking or maybe … I don't know. He is perfect, but I don't know about guys in the industry … two artists [dating]? That's hard."

So, how does one get Drake's attention? By ignoring him. "I think what works with Drake is if you act like you don't like him," said Minaj.

If playing hard to get is what turns him on, then Rihanna might just be Drizzy's one true love. The on-again-off-again couple split in May for unsubstantiated reasons. When asked about her relationship status in an interview, Rih Rih replied, "To be honest, I don't want a serious relationship right now. I just want to have fun!"
