Nicki Minaj backtracked after claiming she and Adele had a huge new song coming.

Days after it emerged Adele is making an epic comeback with a single expected in a matter of days, Nicki Minaj said she and the ballad queen have an “epic” song ready to release – but it turns out the rapper was being sarcastic the whole time.

While speaking to Entertainment Tonight at the launch of her fashion line, Fendi Prints On, she pretended to let slip some of the details of their single – which she said was top secret.

Nicki joked: “Yes and yes, yes and yes, wooo hoo!” when she was quizzed on any plans the dynamic duo might have.

She added: “But Adele made me swear to secrecy that I'm not allowed to tell anyone that I'm working with her. And that we already shot a video. And it's an epic song! Ahh!"

After her claims went viral Nicki took to Twitter to put an end to the excitement, writing: "Omg guys. I thought everyone could clearly see I was being sarcastic. S**t! Now I have to go to Adele’s studio & steal some files. Who’s in the UK? I got a job for you."

Adele has made her love for Nicki clear numerous times throughout the years, expertly rapping her verse in Kanye West’s ‘Monster’ during James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke and again during an LA party earlier this year.

Adele’s new album is rumoured to drop at the beginning of November.

Meanwhile, in September, Nicki announced she would be retiring to have a family, but she’s also collaborated with Ariana Grande for the Charlie’s Angels soundtrack on a song called ‘Bad To You’.

The song also features Normani alongside the rap and pop queens.
