Carly Rae Jepsen's Family Reaction To Nicki Minaj Collaboration

(Radio.com) It may seem like an unlikely pairing but Carly Rae Jepsen's new single, "Tonight I'm Getting Over You," got a special enhancement in the form of a verse from Nicki Minaj. The remix started leaking onto the Internet yesterday, May 2, and is set for a proper single release on Tuesday, May 7.

Jepsen talked to Radio.com about playing the track to her family. Her whole, entire, extended family.

"I was home in Vancouver with my whole family when I received it in my inbox," Jepsen said. "And I [was] like 'Alright, should we all listen together?' And, I'm not kidding, my grandparents, my aunts and uncles everyone was there. I brought it down to the living room and we put it on and everyone I have step parents as well, so it was like loud Italians so no one could hear anything."

But her family heard enough to pass judgement. "When it was done, my brother shouts, 'I love it!' And my grandmother was like, 'What did she say?' 'I have no idea, but it was great!' And so we had to listen like three more times before we could understand it."

And it seems Jepsen's grandparents may be cooler than yours. The singer/songwriter says they already knew who Minaj was before she dropped the track on them. Read what she had to say here.
