Nicki Minaj (Bauer Griffin)
Nicki Minaj has been teasing her new album with harder tracks like "Boss Ass Bitch" and "Lookin' Ass," but the singer's latest single shows off her softer side.
"Pills N Potions," reportedly the first single off her upcoming album The Pink Print, has Minaj rapping alongside a dreamy Dr. Luke hook. "I'm angry but I still love you," the singer croons before rapping about forgiving rivals who once wished her ill.
Minaj has promised that her third album will be a departure from the pop-tastic Pink Friday. “I went so far to the other side that there’s only one place to go from there,” she recently told MTV. “You can either continue doing costumes or you can just say, ‘Hey, guess what? This will shock them even more. Doing absolutely nothing will shock them even more.’”
Listen to the decidedly more gentle Minaj track below, then hit the comments with your thoughts. Is "Pills N Potions" an early candidate for the song of summer? Or do you prefer Nicki's more bubblegum songs?
