It seems femcee Trina is pairing her new style with a new sound.
Following the Nicki Minaj “pop for play” trend, the self-styled Baddest B*tch leaves her trademark “risque” at the door, swapping it for something more universal on new cut ‘Outer Space’.
Listen to Ms. Taylor venture outside of the box below…
Via Karen Civil:
Oh the conundrum.
On the one hand, one can’t but salute Trina for adapting to what’s hot. After all it’s a tried and tested formula, which could very well garner her the universal hit her career has been thirsty for. I mean, as serviceable Dance/Pop cut, the track ultimately “works”. And most importantly at a time when, love it or loathe it, traditional Hip-Hop isn’t.
However, we can’t help but wonder why she’d voluntarily inherit the critique levelled at the Nicki’s of the world for “selling out”. Yes, the industry is changing and new trends are “in”, yet are the longtime Trina fans likely to “bop” to this at her next show, after lapping up the hard-hitting Hip-Hop she’s been serving up for the last decade? Time will tell if this “route” is a risk worth taking.
