Favorite – Nicki Minaj (feat. Jeremih): Song of the Day 12/28

While The Pinkprint is clearly the most personal and emotional album Nicki Minaj has ever released, she still knows how to pump out radio-ready tracks. A possible single down the road, “Favorite” brings out the feel good hit-maker in Minaj.

While relatively simplistic compared to many of the other tracks on Minaj’s third album, “Favorite” provides a much needed gap between the plethora of deep tracks. Jeremih joins Minaj on “Favorite” for one of his two features on the album but it is Nicki’s versatility which makes this joint a must listen.

Get On Your Knees – Nicki Minaj (feat. Ariana Grande): Song of the Day 12/15

After the huge success of “Bang Bang”, everyone knew it was only a matter of time before Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande teamed up again. That moment has come now with the release of The Pinkprint as this fierce duo tells their men to “Get On Your Knees”.

Easily one of the most anticipated tracks from Minaj’s third album, “Get On Your Knees” brings out the freak in both the Young Money queen and Grande. And while Nicki once again proves she can talk dirty with the best of them, it’s Grande’s increasingly mature content, all be most of it through association, which shines on “Get On Your Knees”.

After pumping out three consecutive well-performing single to promote Trigga, Trey Songz took a brief hiatus from his most recent album. But now Trey has returned with the long awaited video for “Touchin, Lovin” to bring back hype.

What seemed like the obvious choice for Songz’s next hit, “Touchin, Lovin” has proved to be just that. In reality, when you combine a hot beat, ridiculously catchy lyrics and a dope verse from Nicki Minaj, it would have been surprising if “Touchin, Lovin” didn’t live up to the hype.

Bed of Lies – Nicki Minaj (feat. Skylar Grey): Song of the Day 11/16

With the first three single from The Pink Print, Nicki Minaj has covered all basis. She slowed it down on “Pills N Potions”, rocked the radio with “Anaconda” and brought serious bars for “Only”. Now she is bringing it full circle on “Bed of Lies”.

Teased by Nicki during her hosting gig at the EMA’s, “Bed of Lies” continues the string of strong performances from the queen of rap. However, she shares the spotlight this time around with Skylar Grey who provides yet another standout chorus which has clearly become her niche.

With her album’s first two singles taking care of her pop-crazed fans, it was time for Nicki to take care of the hip-hop crowd.
