Get into ‘The Boys‘, Nicki Minaj‘s fierce new single featuring Bad Boy supermodel Cassie.
Lifted from the Rapper’s forthcoming album ‘Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up’, the single arrives after she announced its birth at last week’s VMAs, and comes after its older sister ‘Va Va Voom’ was sent to UK radio.
After listening to this a few times, we’d say this is a grower…. a serious grower.
For, while Nicki’s delivery hasn’t been this severe since verse 1 of ‘Roman Holiday’, its confused hook and the unnecessary presence of Cassie makes this one cut we hope gets the buzz treatment.
For as far as radio appeal goes, ‘The Boys’ is lacking and we’re not sure Minaj has opted to give this a push when the likes of ‘Pound The Alarm’ and ‘Whip It’ remain neglected.
In short, though we’ve grown to like, we’re not entirely here for it. A shame, as ‘The Re-Up’ is going to need a hit bigger than this if it’s to become Nicki’s third #1 album this November.
