Off David Guetta’s latest album, “Hey Mama” features Nicki Minaj and was co-produced with Afrojack. The track is the fourth single off Listen, and is the third collaboration between David Guetta and Nicki Minaj, after “Where Them Girls At” and “Turn Me On”.
Nicki raps the verses and sings along with Bebe Rexha on the chorus, who co-wrote the song. The fact that Bebe Rexha is uncredited on this track is unforgivable, not unlike the time my high school yearbook “forgot” to credit me in the Senior Superlatives with “Most Attractive.”
…they did forget, right?
One of the best songs from Nicki Minaj’s new Pinkprint album is a bonus track featuring her Young Money label mates, Drake and Lil Wayne. “Truffle Butter” is a song about enjoying the finer things in life, and features a beat that samples Maya Jane Coles’ club hit “What They Say“.
Drake starts the song off by rapping about the many luxury items his lavish lifestyle affords him and how the women flock to him because of it. Which I have a problem with. I resent the idea that some women, like me, would only want to sleep with Drake because he is super rich, goes to fancy dinners, has expensive jewelry, nice cars, fresh sheets and towels — wait a minute — fresh sheets!? oh shit, that’s totally worth it — I’ve been sleeping on a mattress pad for months…
Following the success of “No Flex Zone,” Nicki Minaj and rappers Rae Sremmurd teamed up again for their latest release, “Throw Sum Mo.” The single, off their debut album SremmLife (1/6/15), also features a verse from Young Thug and production by Soundz.
In other Rae Sremmurd news, Pat Sajak (yeah, that Pat Sajak) rapped the hook to the Mississippi-duo’s, “No Type” on ESPN’s Highly Questionable yesterday.
I’m not familiar with this show, does it regularly feature interviews with people having mini-strokes?
Shortly after their “Flawless Remix” was named TIME’s number one song of the year, Nicki and B released “Feeling Myself,” the fifth single from the Pinkprint (out 12/15). Is it too early to anticipate a Watch The Tiara album? No? Ok, I will begin the vigil.
Ugh, nevermind, “watch the tiara” sounds dumb (dammit, Claire’s!), so the album will have to be be called Watch The Lorraine-Schwartz-Oversized-Black-Jade-And-White-Diamond-Earrings until I can find a better name for royal headgear made specifically for women.
“Only” is Nicki Minaj’s third single from her upcoming Pinkprint album, which has been delayed again, from November 24, to December 15. The new song features verses from Drake & Lil Wayne, Chris Brown on the hook, and production from by Dr. Luke, Cirkut, and J Mike. Throughout “Only” each rapper makes it abundantly clear that none of them have slept with Nicki (an unusual theme for a rap song):
“I never fucked Wayne, I never fucked Drake. All my life for fuck sake.”
— Nicki Minaj
“I never fucked Nicki because she got a man, but when that’s over I’m first in line.” — Drake
“I never fucked Nicki and that’s fucked up. If I did fuck, she would be fucked up.” — Lil Wayne
And yet, Drake and Wayne remain silent about each other…
“Touchin, Lovin,” is Trey Songz’s fifth single off his Trigga album. The song is Nicki Minaj’s first collaboration with Trey Songz since “Bottoms Up” in 2010.
Trey’s new single features a melody similar to one Deadmau5 employed on his remix of Calvin Harris’s “I’m Not Alone,” and the DJ took to Twitter to vent his frustrations about it. Which makes me wonder, what happened on August 18th that he found a song that sounds slightly similar to one he made five years ago? Does Deadmau5 have a Google alert for this shit?
Juicy J recently dropped a new single with an incredible line up of collaborators. “Low” features verses from Nicki Minaj and Lil Bibby, Young Thug on the hook and production by Dr. Luke. The single is off Juicy J’s upcoming album Pure THC: The Hustle Continues.
So… your album is called Pure the hustle continues?
Nicki Minaj released the second single from her upcoming album, The Pink Print, due out sometime this year. The single, produced by Da Internz and Polow Da Don, samples Sir Mix-A-Lot’s infamous lyric, “My anaconda don’t want none unless you’ve got buns, hun,”
That line was amazing back in 1992, but in 2014, most anacondas are gluten free.
“Bang Bang” from Jessie J, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj was released this week and immediately rose to No. 1 on iTunes. Despite being the trifecta of each artist’s talents, the song is credited to Jessie J and is the debut single off her upcoming album. However, it will also be featured on the deluxe edition of Ariana’s album My Everything, and possibly Nicki’s Pinkprint. The sassy single is an anthem for bad girls with a chorus that goes, “Bang bang into the room / I know you want that bang bang all over you.”
Personally, I hate it when I get bang bang all over me, but to each her own…
Usher recently premiered his second single “She Came to Give It to You,” off his upcoming eighth studio album, due out in September. The song is produced by disco-revival master, Pharrell and features a verse by Nicki Minaj, who, at the very end of the song, compares men trying to cuff her to a Swiffer Duster.
I’m surprised she knew what that was — you know that bitch does not dust.
