Nicki Minaj – ‘The Boys’ (Ft. Cassie)

16 Sep

In November, Young Money Princess, Nicki Minaj will re-release her latest album, ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded‘. The album was her first UK number one earlier this year, making Minaj the first female rap artist to top the charts here in the UK. Via twitter, Minaj has hinted that the album will include between 5 and 8 new singles for her barbz to spazz over. ‘The Boys‘, featuring American singer, Cassie, is the first of these new pieces to to revealed.

A captivating beat holds the track together with an old-school hip-hop vibe. An aggressive and arrogant attitude strings the lines together as Minaj and Cassie exploit the pitiful lives of prostitute-loving boys; “You get high/Love a bunch of girls/ Then cry on top of the world.” Acting as her alter-ego, Roman Zolanski, Minaj goes on a victory lap as her ego only continues to grow. The lines are filled of crude silliness that are reminiscent of her earlier work, such as  ‘Roman’s Revenge‘ (featuring Eminem) from her début album ‘Pink Friday‘. Speedy and full of character, Minaj’s verses are disturbingly engrossing whilst Cassie’s vocals add a seductive elegance to the craziness, giving the track a smooth R&B charisma.

Minaj seems to be unstoppable as she throws together the most bizzare insults whilst remaining fierce. The beat is powerful and the vibe is infectious. It will be interesting to see what will follow. Check out ‘The Boys‘ below.
