Spotify imagines Timothée Chalamet in Gag City to celebrate Nicki Minaj’s new album
The Pink Friday 2 fever has spread to Spotify as the music streaming app imagines Timothée Chalamet in the AI Kingdom Gag City to celebrate Nicki Minaj’s new album.
Nicki Minaj‘s sequel album was released on Friday, December 8, and it consists of 22 tracks with multiple special features. Stars who didn’t make it on the rapper’s new project are being imagined in the virtual world created by Barbz, and Timothée Chalamet is one of them.
Spotify imagines Timothée Chalamet in Gag City
Spotify is the latest to hop on the biggest trend that was born during fans’ anticipation of Pink Friday 2.
The music app has updated its banner for teen beats to reflect a picture of Timothée in Gag City while clad in a pink outfit.
Even though the banner is themed on Nicki’s album, the songs on the tracklist are from several different artists, and only one from Pink Friday 2.
Most fans have taken issue with the fact that teen beats’ tracklist only features Are You Gone Already from the rapper’s new album under Tate McRae’s Hurt My Feelings – the first song on the tracklist – and no other song from Pink Friday 2.
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?
Gag City is an AI-generated kingdom created by Barbz and themed on Nicki Minaj‘s new album. The name of the city is a wordplay for “gagged”, a slang to describe something amazing or stunning.
After Nicki shared the cover art on her album – where she is seen standing on a pink subway in a pink-tinted city – fans came up with the amazing idea of creating a full-fledged city using AI.
That’s how Gag City came to be.
Nicki has actively participated in the trend since it started and has even shared her own version of Gag City to keep Barbz updated about Pink Friday 2.
