Nicki would be good on "Get Into It", weird for her to turn it down considering the crap she features on half the time.
 
I watched Doja’s Apple Music interview the other day and she said she wanted to reduce the number of features she has for her own tracks. She cited Prince and MJ as her benchmarks as they seldom did collabs.

She made an interesting point how having constant collabs makes the music feel like patchwork and you can take someone’s verse and add it to another song etc and nothing ever feels like it belongs in one place.
 
Prince seldom did collabs? Girl... His whole career was one big collaboration.

And even MJ has two duets on Bad. One on Thriller. And these were 9 track albums. And Dangerous has Naomi Campbell uncredited, Heavy D uncredited. He also collaborated with Diana Ross, Janet, 3T and that's in the 80s, 90s when nobody really collaborated with anyone because labels didn't like that.

She’s like 5 compared to you sis, she don’t know

Anyway, I think her point was that she didn't want to slap her name on just anyone’s songs, which neither Prince or MJ did. Collaborating was different back then and not as chart motivated as it is today.

Labels didn't like collabs? How comes?

They were a mess when big names were involved:

"No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)" is a 1979 song recorded by American singers Barbra Streisand and Donna Summer. It was written by Paul Jabara and Bruce Roberts and produced by Giorgio Moroder and Gary Klein.

The song was recorded for Streisand's Wet album and also as a new track for Summer's compilation double album On the Radio: Greatest Hits Volumes I & II. The full-length version was found on Streisand's album, while a longer 11-minute edit (the 12" version) was featured on Summer's album. The longer 12" version features additional production by frequent collaborator Harold Faltermeyer, and incorporates a harder rock edge. The single was released on both Casablanca Records (Summer's label) and Columbia Records (Streisand's label) and sales of the two were amalgamated. The versions on the two 7" singles differed slightly however, with different mixes and slightly different background vocal arrangements. The formats differed between nations—in the UK for example, the song was only released on 7" by Casablanca, and 12" (the extended version from the On The Radio album) by Columbia.[citation neede

Anyway collabs happened but they certainly weren't as popular as right now.
 
Dangerous has Naomi Campbell uncredited...

I'm pretty sure Naomi only appeared in the video and it was later confirmed that it was Princess Stephanie of Monaco who did the vocals on In The Closet. Remember when she was referred to as the "Mystery Girl"?

Ah yes you're right. Poor Stephanie!
So, an official tour announcement might be coming?



I NEED. But the wording makes it seem like she's on tour touring various events she's booked to do no?
