New Song: Nicki Minaj – ‘Your Love’ (2nd Single)

Published: Sunday 9th May 2010 by Sam

Hoping to keep her momentum going after the poor performance of debut single ‘Massive Attack’, Nicki Minaj is set to release ‘Your Love’ as its follow-up. Check out the breezy mid-tempo below…

Granted it’s a given that Ms. Minaj boasts much in the way of crossover potential, ‘Your Love’ has kinda thrown me off. Besides the fact she’s singing, the track overall sounds too far removed from the sound we’ve come to expect from her. While I’m sure the Pop audience will lap this up, it may prove a double-edge sword in that such audiences -truth be told-tend to be the least loyal – a fact which won’t bode well for Minaj’s longevity if she continues to move further from her grittier Hip-Hop humblings.

Hit or Miss?

    This isn’t the confirmed official single. You never do research properly she’s just shooting a video for it she didn’t even say it was the 2nd single from the album. ¬_¬

  2. thatmangojuice May 9, 2010

    really feeling this song .. gj nicki

  3. May 9, 2010

    its a great song, she should have chosen that song as the first single

    massive attack wasnt bad, but sean garrets disturbing verses got on my nerves

  4. memo May 9, 2010

    i’m embarrassed to say i like this, it’s damn catchy.
    but the lyrics make no sense half the time, as with most of nick minaj’s raps.

  5. Boricua May 9, 2010

    What is this tosh??

    Did they really sample my girl Annie Lennox though?? Oh hell no…

  6. Missingbeyonce May 9, 2010

    I hope this the second single this song has been my fav minaj song and I agree with @… This should be the first single and yeah sean gareet kinda fuckd up massive attack

  7. ~AalexisR~ The Summer King (The Bahamas) May 9, 2010

    Um she started off singing background vocals. So maybe this isn’t what you knew her for. Research and reading is key man…

  8. TheWickedWiz May 9, 2010

    I’m sure the page title says, Nicki Minaj – ‘Your Love’….
    and then in the text it says ‘My Love’, fix the hell up TGJ
    AND this version sounds a bit different to the version that was on her mixtape, still love it!

  9. Lovelarah May 9, 2010

    love this song, the mixtape version is so much better.
    why is she mixed down so low & it sounds like she re-sang the hook & it was perfect the first time….grrrrrr…..

    best choice as a single though.

  10. Veebz May 9, 2010

    No…. I like the other version MUCH better… She re-wrote half of it

  11. annon May 9, 2010

    urm okayy nicki…she could have done so much better than just singing your love your love your love your love your love your love your love your love your love your love your love your love your love your love your love your love your love your love your love your love your love your love for the chorus..
    get someone better to write the lyrics please.

  12. Oggie May 9, 2010

    This is UK no.1 from when your sampling Annie Lennox you have an international hit, Puffy must be behind this, this is a good move!

  13. trizzy May 9, 2010

    Bish sounds like Justin Bieber tryna sing. SIT ALL THE WAY DOWN.

  14. HaYYYYYY May 9, 2010

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    i luv nicki SOOOOO much but ever since i heard it on barbie world i didnt like it much
    everybody else i know luvs this but i dont and i dont know why she chose this old song as a new single
    bad move nicki:{

  15. ADE May 9, 2010

    I quite like this, but why is she singing…anyway Nicki is SLOWLY starting to grow on me

  16. Karamelkidd May 9, 2010

    Hmmm
    I like this song 🙂
    (i do think the old version was better)

    AND HEY THE LYRICS DO MAKE SENSE IN THIS SONG!

    I hope it does well -crosses fingers-

  17. jewlez May 9, 2010

    this should of been her first single! it’s a very summery song, perfect for the summer! nicki, drop this joint asap!!!!

  18. Phabian May 9, 2010

    Yes…@ Jewlez, very Summery! Now this is a sing-a-long. If u knw the soooooong sing-a-loooooooong, lol

  19. Dimp May 9, 2010

    this song was on her Mix Tape earlier this year. it was such a hit

  20. Angie May 9, 2010

    This song is fire. Nothing about this has me thrown off. There is nothing wrong with being multi-faceted. Her ability to sing only makes her more dynamic.

  21. Richard May 9, 2010

    Sam, you think too much lol. Nicki has never been a serious rapper lol; she’s for the party goers and mainstream crowds LOL. She’s barbie for ken’s sake!

  22. SNSDI May 9, 2010

    LOVE THIS SONG!!!…I find it as postive thing that she is trying to expand her music past rapping about growing up in the hood all the time.

  23. Clos May 9, 2010

    Yes I love this song! I always think this should have been first single but As long as she drop this before her album drops “Whenever that do” Then she will be Gucci…….Chick is going to sale anyway! Love This song

    “Find me in the dark, I be in the stars. Find me in your heart, I’m in need of your love”

  24. Dave May 9, 2010

    I love it, sounds a lil like Ke$ha thou, when she’s singing w/ AUTO-Tune. I thought she was a vocal major, y is she singing w/ auto-tune?

  25. number1k9 May 9, 2010

    THIS WAS HOTT!

    And I’m not even a Nicki Minaj stan! The song was really cute, and a great idea to help her crossover into mainstream, obv less as a streets rapper, but still.

    She was also still “rapping” the verses, Nicki Minaj to me has never had a hardcore rash flow, similar to other (female) rappers, she always to me has has a singer flow to me about her.

    I love this, it’s catchy as something else. And the sample works well! When the autotune part came on, it reminded me of her mentor, Lil Wayne- and once again I’m not the biggest fan of his either!

  26. ~TeAM WeeZY~ May 9, 2010

    EWWWWW! I really like Nicki but I do not like this. Autotune OVERLOAD!!! Ugh!

  27. Alex May 9, 2010

    this will be a chickenhead anthem, nothing else

  28. raychel May 9, 2010

    NICKI IS WHACK! this song sucks. next please

  29. Simply Phillip Brown May 9, 2010

    This is an old song, this was leaked on the internet before ‘Massive Attack’. Let google be your friend and you’ll see, I already had the mp3 on my laptop before ‘Massive Attack’.

  30. Yellow Gorillah May 9, 2010

    Hmmmm i think it is ite not all dat!
    but it might grow on you.!”

    P.s i Liked Massive Attack i don’t understand why people hate it so much =/

  31. DaGoldenGurl May 9, 2010

    I’ve heard this song months ago on the “It’s Barbie B****” mixtape. Cute song, but I hope it’s not her second single.

  32. rated x May 9, 2010

    I vote no.
    is this the best we can do black people?
    her rapping annoys the heck out of me. I miss Eve, lil kim, heck ill even take trina over this crap..

  33. keasyy May 9, 2010

    this s*** old. aint no new single.

  34. miss humble May 9, 2010

    this song is super wack!!! she sounds boring, and sounds like shes not even convinced of her own performance…they are just throwing trash out there to see how stupid people are..

  35. me May 10, 2010

    SOME OF YALL NEED 2 STOP TRYING TO PLAY CORRECTION OFFICER AND LISTEN LOL. LOL. I LOVE THE SONG AND SUPPORT HER 100000%

  41. Andariego May 10, 2010

    I LOVE NICKI! Yea her rap in this song isn’t the best but the song overall is hot! I can’t believe she’s choosing this one as her 2nd single. I’m sure it’ll do well. It’s BARBIE B****!! LMFAO!!!

  42. hey nicki! May 11, 2010

    this reminds me of ll cool j’s style! i love it. i wouldnt stick to this sound too much if i was her, but a musician should be allowed to be versatile.im surprised nobody sampled this annie lennox song before”?

  43. David May 12, 2010

    You guys are stupid! Yes, it is a song that Nicki had on her mixtape before but she’s releasing it as the 2nd single from her debut album. Mixtapes aren’t official.
