The 'Pink Friday' hitmaker said the rapper "does what she tells him to do" - and she didn't hold back on her demands when he co-starred as her love interest in her latest music video 'Moment 4 Life'.
She said: "It wasn't hard to get Drake. Drake does what I tell him to do. I'm Nicki Minaj! You know Drake does what I tell him to do."
The 26-year-old hip hop star has had a publicly flirtatious relationship with the 'Thank Me Later' hitmaker, with the pair exchanging flirty messages on twitter and mentioning each other in interviews and songs.
While Nicki says the pair -both proteges of rapper Lil' Wayne - have a strong Friendship, she won't confirm any rumours of romance.
Speaking of making her latest video, she told MTV: "That energy is amazing. I just have a special place for him. He always makes me feel like it's OK. You know, just chill, relax, jokes. It's never to the point where I don't want to be there anymore, 'Let's wrap this up.'
"Having Drake there, it felt like we could have shot a second day for this video, and I could be fine. He's someone I look up to, he got a head start. So he's able to tell me things I don't know and I can confide in him."
Nicki also admitted they sometimes have a sibling-like rivalry, explaining although she "loves him to death" she tries to outshine him when they collaborate.
She added: "I'm going to try to body you on this track but I love you to death. It's dope."
