Invigorating the world of music and tech, Spotify has done it again. This time, celebrating the release of Nicki Minaj’s new album by hypothesising what it would be like if actor Timothée Chalamet were to take up residence in “Gag City”, the music maven’s fizzy world. We promise this is a delightful, fantastical journey that music lovers, Minaj fans, and Chalamet enthusiasts won’t want to miss. Ready to dive in? Let’s go!
Spotify is turning up the heat in celebration of Nicki Minaj’s ‘Pink Friday 2’ release, by unveiling a dynamic AI kingdom, Gag City, featuring the likes of Timothée Chalamet.
In praise of Nicki Minaj‘s tantalizing sequel album dropped on December 8 comprising 22 riveting tracks, Spotify uses the power of imagination. Celebrities not featured on the rapper‘s new venture, like Timothée Chalamet, are finding their virtual selves within the whimsical confines of Gag City, an ingenious creation stemming from Barbz’s realm.
Spotify recently jumped on the latest hype train surrounding the anticipation of Nicki Minaj’s new album, Pink Friday 2.
In celebration, they’ve updated their Teen Beats banner with a new image. It now features the charming Timothée Chalamet, poised in Gag City, donning a pink outfit.
But not all fans are pleased. The main point of contention lies in the tracklist’s lack of variety. Despite featuring ‘Are You Gone Already’ from Minaj’s latest album, it only pairs the song with Tate McRae’s ‘Hurt My Feelings’. Fans are left wanting, as the remainder of Pink Friday 2 is noticeably absent.
The caption under the banner featuring the Hollywood actor reads: “Timmy showing up to gag city, whimsy edition.”
New face in Nicki Minaj’s virtual realm sends fans wild
Timothée’s fans love his presence in the AI Kingdom. A few of them have praised Spotify for making teen beats edgier by bringing the actor to the pink-tinted world, which has already been graced by many AI celebrities, including Rihanna, Kanye West, Ice Spice, and others.
One fan branded Spotify’s imagination of Timothée in Gag City as a “legendary move”, while another said the picture looks “too real.”
“Timothée is really keeping up with the latest beats! But now, I can’t stop picturing him at #GagCity with Nicki. Thanks for the laugh!” said another.
A third fan said: I’ll definitely give it a listen and see how the new cover and layout match the vibe of the playlist.” Another described the new layout as “very cool.”
What is the Gag City trend?
Ever heard of Gag City? This AI-crafted kingdom was inspired by Barbz fans to celebrate the release of Nicki Minaj‘s newest album. The term “Gag City” is an exciting twist on the slang “gagged”, meaning incredibly awesome or breathtaking.
Once Nicki unveiled her vibrant, pink-centric album cover — picture her standing on a pink subway amidst a city bathed in pink hues — fans were inspired to create a whole city using artificial intelligence,
And voila, Gag City was born.
Not one to stand on the sidelines, Nicki herself jumped in on this trend. She’s shared updates of Gag City and how it parallels her Pink Friday 2 journey, keeping her Barbz fans in the loop every step of the way.
