Stan-fantasy 101: When queens collide the result is certain to be nothing less than explosive. For, fans have been sent into a frenzy from news indicating (the inarguable) Queen of Pop Madonna has enlisted reigning rapstress Nicki Minaj for her new single.
Find out when you’ll get your first listen after the jump:
According to sources, the song will have its royal unveiling on February 5, 2012 at Superbowl XLVI (where Madge has been crowned headliner). The cut, entitled ‘Give Me All Your Love’ and also features Sri Lankan hitmaker M.I.A., will be the first lifted from the music monarch’s untitled LP due in the same month.
If the report is indeed true, the result is sure to be fire. People may fault Madonna for “using” today’s hottest stars to boost her relevancy, but for a woman who has managed to keep her name in people’s mouths for the last 3 decade, she must be doing something right. Clearly acts with Justin Timberlake ,Britney Spears, and Lady Gaga have not exactly solidified her presence with today’s younger record-buyers, but it hasn’t hurt the cause either.
Minaj, on the other hand, would certainly benefit from the duet. Given her previous assistances lent to pop starlets Rihanna, Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, and diva Mariah Carey (in varying capacities), it is ever-present that the Harajuku Barbie’s packaging is becoming more and more pop infused – which, aka, really means becoming more commercially viable. Marketing strategy 101 that some rap starlets before and after should take note of.
