EPISODE 56: Nicki Minaj – #3PackFromPARIS
Check out all three singles!!
Regret In Your Tears:
For a while, the self-proclaimed Queen of Rap, had been in a period of inactivity doing things behind the scenes and out of the booth. Racking up accolades and achievements, with a couple guest features here and there, it seemed like Ms. Minaj was simply laying in the pocket doing whatever she felt like. Then along came “ShETHER” courtesy of Remy Ma. This feud had been brewing for a little while before Remy decided to shoot the first shot, and unlike other female MCs, this shot made contact. For the first time, since the Lil’ Kim feud, Nicki Minaj had a formidable foe, only this time, the impact of the diss record had serious magnitude. However, Remy attempted to follow up the record with the aptly titled “Anotha One”, which hindered the momentum Remy had initially. With the window of opportunity open, Nicki assembled her crew and dropped 3 songs in a day and sent her fans in a frenzy.
On “No Frauds“, she not only responds to Remy’s disses, but accompanied by Lil Wayne and Drake, she adds another hit to her historic stat sheet (With these three songs Nicki officially has the more Hot 100 hits than any female artist in history, passing the one and only Aretha Franklin). Although the response is not as strong as “ShETHER”, the success of the track is speaking volumes.
On the Lil Wayne assisted “Changed It”, Nicki fires more shots at Remy in the similar fashion that was used against her in both of Remy’s tracks. Wayne’s Dedication-reminiscent verse is much stronger on this single, resulting in another banger from the 3 pack drop.
Lastly, the bass-thumping, R&B-styled single “Regret In Your Tears” is a smooth song to round out the mini drop from Nicki. With the Trinidadian touch, the song’s danceable essence is undeniable making the single arguably the strongest out of the set.
Overall, Nicki seems unbothered and is continuing to make history. All we need now, is the new album, which is apparently titled MYOB.
