Nicki Minaj’s new album ‘Queen’ has arrived, and fans immediately took note of the project’s third song “Barbie Dreams.” Nicki delivers her own version of The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Just Playing (Dreams),” the legendary rapper’s 1994 song where he rapped about all the R&B singers he wanted to have sex with. Lil’ Kim famously rehashed the idea on her 1996 ‘Hardcore’ track “Dreams,” as did 50 Cent on 1999’s “How to Rob.” This is actually the second time Nicki has remade Biggie’s song. Back in 2007, she tried her hand at the track on ‘Playtime is Over’s’ “Dreams.”
