Rapper Nicki Minaj’s new “Anaconda” track leaked days ahead of it’s scheduled release and now the Young Money star has decided to address the situation and explain what could have caused the leak.
According to Minaj, technical issues were more than likely the reason behind the song leaking days in advance.
“I wanted it out, and then the label came with this great radio plan to put it out next week. So what my fans don’t know is that we were actually going to put the record out August 11th. We were going to have this amazing promotion and have all this stuff leading up to it, and lo and behold the record leaked. We had already sent the song out to people like iTunes and Google and all of that. There was on particular app that didn’t delete it out of their system and by mistake gave it to their customers. It just was inevitable, the leak started happening online and so we had to just release it today.” (CBS Local)
