"Your Love" is one of my favorite Nicki Minaj songs by far. When I first heard it, I thought it was tough and definitely a different sound from her other tracks. Nicki is hard at work filming the video and spoke about the success of the song. 

“I was not planning on putting the song out at all,” she told MTV News over the weekend on the “Your Love” video set. “But then I heard it one day, somebody told me it was online. And I was like, ‘No way, no way in the world that song is out.’ I went and listened to it and was really upset. It wasn’t mixed, it wasn’t finished, it wasn’t anything — I wasn’t gonna use it at all. But then radio started playing it.”

Isn’t that crazy?” Nicki said. “Crazy. I don’t even know how it feels [to have a #1 hit] right now. But it’s amazing.
Nicki still doesn't have a title for her upcoming album or a release date, but hopes to release it by the end of this year.

According to Nicki, though, she's still rooted in the spirit of a newcomer and not letting success go to her head. 

"Sometimes people see the glitz and the glamour. That's why they envy you," Minaj said earlier this year. "They don't see three, four, five years ago. They don't see when I was selling my mixtape for $2 on Jamaica Avenue [in Queens]. They don't see when I couldn't get New York DJs — I lived in New York my whole life — to even play a song. At the end of the day, it's all about hard work. You clearly see that hard work; that's all it takes. If you really want it, direct your energy on positive sh--, and it will happen."
