Pink Friday [Clean Lyrics]

( 5 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
By the time 2010 rolled around, debuts like Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday could still fall into the "highly anticipated" category, but the reasoning was different. Two years of strong mixtapes and guest appearances meant the hip-hop faithful already knew this sometimes dirty debutante could take that gutsy Lil' Kim style to another level, and that both the single and the full-length format were at her command. The only question left is how this versatile artist would present herself to the general public, and the answer is a Gwen Stefani-meets-Baz Luhrman-meets-Young Money-type affair that both dazzles and disappoints.

By the time 2010 rolled around, debuts like Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday could still fall into the "highly anticipated" category, but the reasoning was different. Two years of strong mixtapes and guest appearances meant the hip-hop faithful already knew this sometimes dirty debutante could take that gutsy Lil' Kim style to another level, and that both the single and the full-length format were at her command. The only question left is how this versatile artist would present herself to the general public, and the answer is a Gwen Stefani-meets-Baz Luhrman-meets-Young Money-type affair that both dazzles and disappoints. Feed off the production, the great musical ideas, and Minaj's keen sense of her surroundings, and Pink Friday is an outstanding success. It's chock-full of new wave textures and diva attitude, creating the kind of atmosphere where will.i.am stops over while you tell the haters to kill themselves over a "Video Killed the Radio Star" sample "Check It Out". More grand moments come when Kanye West and Minaj mack together on the great, Simple Minds-sampling "Blazin," or when "Your Love" waltzes out of the speakers with a unique brand of hood majesty, but when "Dear Old Nicki" comes round with "In hindsight, I loved your rawness and I loved your edge," Minaj suggests that her growth as an artist requires the sacrificing of all Trina-like qualities. Confusingly, the key track, "Romans Revenge," finds her winning while acting as savage as ever, standing up to Eminem -- who is in gross-mode -- and literally roaring like a tiger to get the job done. This is the Nicki the mixtape crowd fell in love with, and you only need check out 2009's mixtape Beam Me Up Scotty for examples of how the Barbie read: pop and R&B and the bitch read: hip-hop sides of Minaj can be sensibly presented together. In the end, Pink Friday is an ambitious, glossy stunner if fashion week is your favorite time of year, but Minaj didn't earn her diva status this way. Longtime fans familiar with her underground work won't even consider this her debut, just an extravagant coming out party, the kind where the invite mentions "no sneakers or athletic apparel."

    Padoof!

    Who doesn't like Pink Friday? When I listen to this album, it makes me happy. She is the greatest singer ever. I picked Pink Friday because I like the song Super Bass. Pink Friday is a great album, because Nicki Minaj sings good, has awesome lyrics, and catchy songs. Nicki Minaj sings good. She has a high pitched voice. She also has a low pitch voice. She sounds awesome when she sings. She has a smooth voice. Nicki is good at singing. The song I like by Nicki Minaj is Super Bass. Here are some lyrics that I like. "This one is for the boys with the booming system." "Boy you got my heartbeat runnin' away." "Don't y6ou here that heartbeat runnin' away." "Yes I did, yes I did. Somebody please tell him who the FI is." Super Bass is very catchy. Here are some lyrics that are catchy. "Got that boom baboom baboom baboom here that super bass." I think that is very catchy because, it can get stuck in your head really fast. That's one of the lyrics that get stuck in my head. So, the artists name is Nicki Minaj. She has catchy songs. Nicki has awesome lyric in her songs. Who doesn't like Pink Friday? She has a beautiful voice. Nicki also raps. So when she does it, it sounds awesome.
