Nicki Minaj: 'Super Bass'

By
Nicki Minaj 'Super Bass'
Released on Tuesday, May 3 2011

She's a staple in glossy gossip mags and garners headlines for her outlandish outfits and generously-sized assets - but despite her high-profile presence, Nicki Minaj has yet to acquire a coveted Top 10 placing on the official UK or US singles charts. Now, following a dodgy rendition by country singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, she's back on the chart offensive with the fifth cut from her debut LP Pink Friday.

Fizzing with electric guitars, euphoric synths and a booty-shaking hip-hop beat, 'Super Bass' is topped off with a ready-made pop chorus sharper than a Sherbet Dib Dab. "Boy you got my heartbeat running away/ Beating like a drum and it's coming your way," she lilts in her girly, Barbie-doll persona. Sprinkled with her trademark eccentric rapping style and regular mentions of those hefty "boom badooms", little else could be done to lift her to the higher echelons of the chart. Fifth time's a charm, right?
