Nicki Minaj Drops ‘The Boys’ Single Featuring Cassie
Nicki Minaj has finally released her much talked-about new single ‘The Boys.’ The song, which is available for purchase on iTunes right now, does feature a “real pretty” female artist by the name of Cassie. The duo make an awesome pairing on this certified pop-driven banger.
On the track, Minaj spits rapid-fire punchlines over a jack-hammer beat, whining synthesizers, acoustic guitars and ringing alarms. “I told Nicki be chillin’ / I’ma keep hurtin’ your feelings / Because you could never be Jordan / You couldn’t even be Pippen / You couldn’t even be trippin’ / You can’t afford a vacation / I’m out in Haiti with Haitians / I go to Asia with Asians,” she raps to her haters.
Meanwhile, Cassie is on chorus duty crooning the sing-songy hook. “You get high / Love a bunch of girls / And then cry on top of the world / I hope you have the time of your life / I hope I don’t lose it tonight,” she sings.
Minaj’s ‘The Boys’ is a bouncy tune that should do exceptionally well on pop radio. It’s fun, has a catchy beat and you can certainly dance to it. Honestly, the song is so good that even Minaj’s nemesis Peter Rosenberg might like it.
Look for the song to appear on Minaj’s re-release of ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded — The Re-Up,’ which will hit stores in November. The collection is expected to have five to eight new tracks including one featuring Lil Wayne. Minaj recently told her fans, “So Barbz, you are going to spaz, you are going to love it, you are going to go crazy.”
