Nicki Minaj is “Sorry” after all.

The new mom, 38, agreed to pay Tracy Chapman $450,000 in addition to Chapman’s legal fees after she was sued for copyright infringement in regards to Chapman’s song, “Baby Can I Hold You.”

Chapman acknowledged the offer on December 30 and her acceptance was entered into the court system on Thursday, per federal court documents obtained by Page Six on Friday.

Chapman, 56, and Minaj were set to go to trial over Chapman’s claims later this year. She first filed suit against the “Super Bass” rapper in October 2018.

While Minaj didn’t release the track in question on her album, “Queen,” she did allegedly leak it to Funkmaster Flex, which led to its circulation online.

Chapman alleged that Minaj asked for permission to sample her song, but went ahead with it anyway when Chapman rejected the request.
