Reflecting on her musical evolution, the Queens native revealed, “When I look back at a lot of my music, I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, where was the me in it?’ So for this album, I went back to the old game plan.” Minaj emphasized her desire to return to a more authentic and optimistic approach, aiming to inspire hope, as evidenced by lyrics like, “I’m fighting for the girls who never thought they could win.”
