Trying to identify a song I heard on the radio with just a few lyrics - help please!

It was playing on a station that plays either top40/hip-hop or rap. It sounded like a typical hip hop song with a reggae or African flair. I think there was a part with a female rapper who sounded like Nicki Minaj, but I could be mistaken.

I think some of the lyrics were "...every day of my life..." and it sounded like the singer had some sort of accent, maybe Jamaican?

I tried checking the radio station website but they do not have the play list posted. Thank you!

Was it Nikki Minaj's Moment 4 Life? (actual song starts around 1:30)

Seconding Moment 4 Life - Nicki Minaj is Trinidadian.

Thanks, both are good guesses but not it. I should have been more specific - most of the song is sung by a man with an accent. Then there is one part where the rap comes in. There might be multiple rappers. Thanks again!

Does it have a part about all around the world or everywhere in the world or something like that, and is it upbeat? (I am trying to remember a song, but it's not cooperating.)

Michael Franti and Spearhead, Say Hey? It doesn't have that exact line, but it's the one I was thinking of.

Finally found it- thanks shazam- it is called "Hold Yuh" by gyptian feat. Nicki minaj.
