It had to happen sooner or later. After rapping her ass off on recent for-the-internet-heads tracks like “Chi-Raq” and “Yasss Bish!!,” Nicki Minaj has gone back to widescreen down-the-middle pop music on her new single “Pills N Potions.” But if she has to make pop music, best that she make pop music like this. Top 40 overlord Dr. Luke produced “Pills N Potions,” the first single on Nicki’s forthcoming album The Pink Print, and it’s a graceful and personal piece of work. I have a terrible track record picking this sort of thing, but it sounds like a hit. Listen below.
The Pink Print is coming sometime this year on Young Money.
