Nicki Minaj Releases Lead ‘Pink Print’ Single: ‘Pills N Potions’

“I get high off your memory. In due time, we’ll be fine. I still love.”

Nicki Minaj has won the critics over with her new single “Pills N Potions.” The song, produced by Dr. Luke, is the lead single from her upcoming third album, The Pink Friday. “Pills N Potions” is Nicki’s  realest single to date: it sees her spitting real bars about love lost and betrayal, while sh sings a soulful and endearing hook and bridge over thumping drums. Listen below:

 

 

I wasn’t really sure how I felt about this after first listen, but now after a few listens, I really love the song. It’s not super pop, it’s not strictly a street-rap single. It’s crossover, but it still allows Nicki to stay true to her roots as an emcee. This is gonna be a nice-sized hit. Will it be enough to dethrone Iggy Azalea as female rapper of the moment? No. But the two are definitely gonna have to learn to share the spotlight, because Nicki’s going for a strictly rhythmic/hip hop lane with this album (hopefully), while Iggy is more pop/rhythmic.
