Background

Shortly after the release of the track, Nicki took to Twitter to reveal some of the background on the song. She stated how she had been on "Bed" for over a year, and one day Ariana dropped by her studio and Nicki played her what she did on "The Light Is Coming", and Ariana offered to get on something for Queen.

"I had been on the hook for a year so it never dawned on me to put someone else. Let me tell u smthn, Ari did it & sent it RIGHT back. Added all these beautiful harmonies & runs. Never over does it. Just ALWAYS gets it right. I fell in love. I called her screaming. OMG. #Bed"

Music Video

The music video for "Bed" was first released July 6, 2018. It was directed by Hype Williams who has directed various videos for Nicki previously including "Massive Attack" and "Va Va Voom". Some of the video was shot in Turks in the northern West Indies, however Ariana was unable to fly out with Nicki for that location, so her scenes were shot in Malibu.

Minaj stated on Twitter that there are actually two edits of the video, due to two different directors being involved. However, the alternate cut of the video has not yet been released. The music video was the first confirmed to feature Romania. The closing scenes of the video feature cameos from New York Giants former punter Brad Wing, and receiver Odell Beckham Jr..

Lyrics

Ariana Grande:
Got a bed wit' your name on it
Wit’ your name on it
Got a kiss wit' your name on it
Wit' your name on it

Nicki Minaj:
Thousand dollar sheets
Waitin’ for you on some thousand dollar sheets
I got Carter III on repeat
Back shots to the beat of "A Milli" on you
Got me acting like you got a milli on you
He say I'm the GOAT, yeah, the billy on you
I could make all your dreams come true
Wanna fall through, then you better come through

Ariana Grande:
But don't make me wait until the morning

Got a bed wit' your name on it
Wit' your name on it
Got a kiss wit' your name on it
Wit' your name on it
Love me good, love me down
Don't turn me down
Got a bed wit’ your name on it
Wit’ your name on it

Nicki Minaj:
Strawberry lingerie
Waitin' for you, strawberries, lingerie
You told me you on the way
Mess around, mess around, put it down on you
I’ma do everything I said I'm gon' do
Pretty little body, it look better on you
Might have to blow it like a feather on you
Waterfalls, ooh, yeah, you better come through

Ariana Grande:
But don't make me wait until the morning

Got a bed wit’ your name on it
Wit' your name on it
Got a kiss wit' your name on it
Wit' your name on it
Love me good, love me down
Don't turn me down
Got a bed wit' your name on it (Oh, yeah)
Wit' your name on it (On it)

Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande:
O-on, on it (On it)
O-on, on it
O-on, on it
O-on, on it (But I put your name on it)

Nicki Minaj:
Yo, he in my startin' five, he get his city live
These niggas scared, they doing 50 in a 55
I'm tryna clap him like somebody told him, "Gimme five"
I'ma be a half an hour, but I told him, "Gimme five"
I'm tryna dance on him, blow my advance on 'em
I like him better when he got some sweatpants on him
I like his hang time, he said his head right
I said go all the way down and then head right
I watch him fuck it up, look at him luckin' up
I said, "You need some thick skin, baby, suck it up"
He go insane on it, I put my fame on it
Coulda put ZAYN on it, but I put your name on it

Ariana Grande:
I got a bed wit' your name on it
Wit' your name on it
Got a kiss wit' your name on it
Wit' your name on it, yeah
Love me good, love me down
Don't turn me down (Turn it down, baby)
Got a bed wit' your name on it (Your name)
Wit' your name on it
