Nicki Minaj’s hit “Moment For Life” was recently used in her Pepsi commercial as part of her ‘Live For Now’ campaign. During a behind-the-scenes interview with TheInsider.com, Nicki revealed that producer and former Murder Inc. label head, Irv Gotti, gave her the inspiration for the track.
The Barb had this to say:
When I was writing my first album, ‘Pink Friday,’ I had a conversation with one of my really good friends, his name is Irv Gotti, and we had this really interesting conversation where he told me ‘enjoy this moment, you’ll never get this moment ever again,’ you’ll never be the ‘new girl on the scene’ ever again, and so I went into the studio. I heard this amazing track, and right there in the moment I kind of wished I could freeze everything that was happening because it just felt so exciting, people were all of a sudden interested in me. As an underground artist, I wasn’t really used to that.
“I just started singing, “I wish that I could have this moment for life.” I went in the booth and started singing it. I never wrote it down. I just felt that’s what the track was saying.”
