New Song: Trina – ‘Outer Space’

Published: Tuesday 27th Mar 2012 by Sam

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.

    When she premièred a bit of this last night on VH1, I immediately ran to youtube to try and find it, not knowing that name, I like her rap, but somehow I’m not feeling the whole song …

    I love it

  5. Yo March 27, 2012

    I Like The chorus, but Its Evident Trina Doesnt Have Cross-Over Appeal, Her Flow Is Still the Same From her Hip-Hop Tracks, It Doesnt work for This Type Of Music In My Opinion…. Only Nicki Minaj Can do his Right Now It Works For Her

    This isn’t good. I commend Trina for the effort though.

  8. Alexxxx March 27, 2012

    GOOD SONG.
    – I like the song in general, but there are some parts of it that could be better… More rapping would be better.

    In general I like it, but her style of rapping just doesn’t fit well with it.

  14. LAX March 27, 2012

    All ya haters need to FALL BACK!!!!!!

    Trina sounds good and i cant wait until she bring more new music out….i enjoy Trina music

  15. QueenSize March 27, 2012

    Uuuuuuuhhh…I don’t know what to say. I can’t take listening to Nicki do this s*** and now one of my favorite femcees Is on that route. I just don’t think it’s a good look for her. I understand her need to try something new that will refresh her spirit but it just doesn’t sound good to me. It’s not her. What does outerspace have to do with a breakup? Million dollar girl was pop enough for me. I will buy simply because she is Trina and I am always gonna be her fan but I just don’t like it. Oh goodness this hurts.

    So, this is Starships’ step sister. I see. That’s cute.

  17. Tbozfan10 March 27, 2012

    The chorus sucks and so does the techno breakdown. I like the few places where trina is actually on the track. I dig that part. That’s it though.

  18. Tbozfan10 March 27, 2012

    This is as corney as nicki’s. “starships.” I’m not mad at nicki or Trina though. Youre never gonna like every song one of your favorite artists makes unless they all sound the same. I just don’t care for all this pop in outerspace crap. It was cute when MJ and Janet did it in ’95. It isn’t cute anymore.

    On a side note, I think the absolute worst attempt at this was the Dream’s “walking on the moon.” I can watch that video anytime I want a good laugh.

    Okay people. “I’m back from outerspace….I will SURVIVE.”
    I know damn well y’all have heard that song over AND over! Use your brains please. That’s why the song it titled that way. However, that does not excuse this corny song. This song could have worked with a stronger singer and a less repetitive beat. I think Trina’s flow worked well on this track but this is a VERY watered down version of “Turn Me On” and “Starships.” Whether she attempted to mimick Nicki or not that’s what it appears like. I’m a huge fan of Trina’s and want to see her do well, but this is not the way. I’m totally down with the dance-rap thing because it’s completely relevant at the moment and isn’t going anywhere, but this song could have gone harder to appease her rap fans. Just because we enjoy rap doesn’t mean we don’t like POP, but this song isn’t even a good POP song.

    Trina please do better on your next effort and feel free to omit this from the album….I can’t even see this fitting on a Trina album…?! Take your time in the studio boo….really work at this thing and don’t listen to these young producers just trying to pocket some money buy selling dollar store beats.

  21. James_9481 May 28, 2012
