Rap star Nicki Minaj has ventured into the world of straight-up pop music with the release of her sophomore album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. While half of the album features Nicki’s singnature rap style, the other half features the poppier, more radio-friendly side of the singer. Today we get to see the music video for Nicki Minaj’s new single Starships, which is a decidedly poppy song that sounds like more like a Katy Perry confection rather than a typical Minaj track (like, say, her last single Beez in the Trap). Click below to watch Nicki Minaj in all her bootylicious glory in her video for Starships.
I generally like the song, it’s catchy with a good hook. The video is fun but … for a song called Starships, there aren’t very many starships to be had. There’s a lot of booty … and boobies … maybe the song should’ve been called Bootyships? In any event, the video is out … so what do y’all think? I like it, I don’t love it. How ’bout you?
