On Friday, we gushed over Nicki Minaj when she reigned over our best songs of the week. Her appearance on Wiz Khalifa’s new song “True Colors” is nowhere near as good as anything she was involved with last week, but she does make the pretty-bland Khalifa song worth a listen to hear her flex her “Super Bass”-y pop muscles again. It’s a change from the more visceral Minaj that we’ve been getting recently and a good reminder that she’s effective on both sides of the equation. Listen below.
Wiz’s new album Blacc Hollywood is out 8/19 on Atlantic. Nicki’s third album is due out in the fall.
