Nicki Minaj's latest controversial song, Yikes, seems to have a line that throws shade at her ex, Meek Mill. Previously, on February 5, 2020, Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill had a heated feud on social media, where Nicki said that Meek had 'twitter fingers', and implied that he only picked a fight with her to get more likes. Nicki Minaj's new song, Yikes, has a line that says, "Yikes, you a clown, you do it for the likes," and fans immediately noticed that Nicki might be throwing shade at Meek Mill, as the line was rather similar to what she had said during their social media feud.

The feud between Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill started after the two met at a store back in January. A video of the confrontation also went viral online. In the video of their run-in, Nicki Minaj's husband, Kenneth Petty, had a heated and aggressive argument with Meek Mill, which later led up to Nicki and Meek's online social media feud. 

Most of Nicki Minaj's fans seem to enjoy her new song, with many praising its lyrics and amazing beats. However, the song was not without controversies. A few days ago on February 3, 2020, Nicki had shared a promo for Yikes, where she included a line that referred to civil rights icon Rosa Parks.
