The A-side and B-side are the two sides of phonograph records and cassettes; these terms have often been printed on the labels of two-sided music recordings. The A-side usually features a recording that its artist, producer, or record company intends to be the initial focus of promotional efforts and radio airplay and hopefully become a hit record. The B-side (or “flip-side”) is a secondary recording that typically receives less attention, although some B-sides have been as successful as, or more so than, their A-sides. Therefore, Minaj is displaying her versatility in being able to provide music that can be played on either side. Note: Also potential play on not only rival Azealia Banks’ initials (A.B.) but also on lyrics from Minaj’s feature on ASAP Ferg’s “Plain Jane REMIX” (2017) “I’m the Alpha, The Omega, and everything in between” (O-n-i-k-A) Image description
