Nicki Minaj feat Will.i.am
Check it Out
[Behind the Scenes with MTV]
As much as I applaud her for gaining such mainstream acclaim rather quickly, I must say that I am tired of these sing-song pop singles. If Nicki is to be billed as a rapper, I want her to rap. I love Your Love and hate Check it Out. It feels like both of them could be a single for a singer with Nicki as the featured rapper. Check it Out could have been just as effective as a Fergie song. It probably would have been better. Nicki has really shined as a feature artist. She has been on a track with everyone. Is that what she is limited to? Can she sustain a rap record alone?
We will see.
Her album Pink Friday drops November 23.
