Pop singer Nicki Minaj hints at having an abortion in a new single and, assuming she is referencing her aborted baby in the tune, says the baby is an “angel looking over” her brother.
The lyrics to “All Things Go” appear to indicate that Minaj either had an abortion or a miscarriage 16 years ago. Either way, the death of the baby had an impact on the singer as Minaj clearly recalls the child in the song’s lyrics and references her young brother:
“I want Caiah to go to college just to say we did it/My child with Aaron, would’ve have been sixteen any minute/So in some ways I feel like Caiah is the both of them/It’s like he’s Cai’s little angel looking over him.”
The 31-year old also makes it clear that she was once engaged. Or at least that someone once asked for her hand in marriage.
“Ten years ago, that’s when you proposed/I look down, yes I suppose,” Nicki raps.
In 2008, Minaj admitted to feeling guilt about having had an abortion in the single “Autobiography.” She was around 15 at the time she ended her pregnancy.
