Nicki Minaj must feel like she owes Diddy after she dropped him as her manager. Or at least that’s the most logical explanation for why she dug up Diddy’s alleged fiancee Cassie for this feature on her new single. Cause it’s not like Cassie’s burning up the Billboard Hot 100, or anything like that.
Nicki’s new song “Boys” is the lead single from her re-release of her hit sophomore album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded the Re-Up. Damn, that re-release title is a mouthful. She needs to let that Pink Friday thing go.
“Boys” is a smash though. It’s a playful, pop-friendly slice of electro hip-hop. But despite the pop leanings of the production, Nicki actually spits some magnificient bars on the track.
Her one-liners are blistering and her sense of humor proves to be razor-sharp, like when she mocks “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star Joseline Hernandez. “Steebie, did you ever really lub me, Steebie?” Nicki asks.
