Just prior to the scheduled release, Nicki Minaj refused to clear her verse on the song, “New Body,” which Ye intended to include on the tracklist for Vultures. She explained the decision on Instagram Live after West called her out on social media. “Now regarding Kanye, that train has left the station, OK?” she said. “No disrespect in any way, I just put out a brand new album. Now why would I put out a song that has been out for three years? Come on guys. You know?”
