Nicki Minaj gets deeeeep in her latest The Pinkprint single "All Things Go".
She reflects on life, and how fast time passes. One day it's here, the next day it's gone -- from her engagement with longtime boo Safaree Samuels to her deceased cousin to the baby she never had.
This is one of the realest, most vulnerable songs we've heard from Nicki. She revealed in her Twitter Q&A that "All Things Go" is one of the two most emotional songs on the forthcoming album.

See all the topics she tackles in her new song:
Nicki on parenthood:
"Life is a movie, but there will never be a sequel
And I'm good with that, as long as I'm peaceful
As long as 7 years from now, I'm taking my daughter to preschool."
Nicki recently confessed to Complex that she wants to be married with a baby by her fifth album.
Nicki on her marriage proposal:
"Ten years ago, that's when you proposed
I look down, yes I suppose."
Nicki on losing her cousin Nicholas:
"I lost my little cousin to a senseless act of violence
His sister said, he wanted to stay with me, but I didn't invite hi
Why didn't he ask, or am I just buggin'?
Cause since I got fame, they don't act the same
Even though they know, that I love him
Family ties, broken before me, niggas tryna kill him, he ain't even call me
And that's the reflection of me, yes I get it, I get it, it was all me
I pop a pill and remember the look in his eyes, the last day he saw me."
Nicki on all the industry fakeness:
"Let me make this clear I'm not difficult, I'm just about my business
I'm not into fake industry parties, and fake agendas
Rock with people for how they make me feel not what they give me"
Nicki on fame, fortune, and family:
"I'm love my mother more than life itself, and that's a fact
I'd give it all, if I could somehow, just rekindle that
She never understands, why I'm so overprotective
The more I work, the more I feel like, somehow they're neglected
I want 'Caiah to go to college, just to say 'We did it!'"
Nicki on losing her child:
"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 'Caiah's little angel, looking over him."
