During an interview with DJ Skee on 102.7's KIIS-FM, the 'XXXO' singer admitted that she became a fan of Minaj after working with her on a remix of her track 'Teqkilla'.
"She's really creative with how far she's willing to go. I just feel like I get her," she said.
"Nicki Minaj runs hip-hop. She works hard, and that's what it is. She's focused, and that's good. She's got really good work ethic."
M.I.A. recently revealed that she completed her new album /\/\/\Y/\ in a basement recording studio that she built under her Los Angeles home.
