In a few weeks, the world will be seeing pink as Nicki Minaj will drop her highly-anticipated second album ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ on April 3. So far, Minaj has released a bevy of singles including the Chris Brown-assisted ‘Right by Your Side‘ and ‘Beez in the Trap‘ featuring 2 Chainz.

The Young Money starlet just released an album sampler to give fans a sneak peek of all 22 tracks on the album that will also have a deluxe edition boasting two extra songs.

From the sampler, we know the album boasts productions from top-notch producers like Hit-Boy (‘N—as in Paris’), RedOne, J.R. Rotem, Dr. Luke, Kane Beatz and others. The collection also features guest appearances from Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Nas, Drake and Young Jeezy.

Most of the tracks on her sound like vintage Nicki Minaj — hyper, intense and full of fire. There’s are a few standouts that caught our ears. ‘HOV Lane’ sounds like a metaphoric meaning that she’s aiming to be the next Jay-Z, while ‘Champion’ is a bonafide hit with Nas, Drake and Young Jeezy backing the Harajuku Barbie.

There are also plenty of electro-dance tunes on the collection, as well. Songs like ‘Pound the Alarm,’ ‘Whip It,’ ‘Automatic’ and ‘Beautiful Sinner’ will probably have some naysayers calling Minaj a “sellout,” but if you’re into that type of music, she’s got you covered.

The extra bonus tracks are the Dr. Luke-produced jams ‘Va Va Voom’ and ‘Masquerade,’ which are strictly for the clubs. You can check out the entire track list here.

All in all, Minaj delivers the goods on ‘PF: RR.’ Some might prefer the grittier, street-edged Minaj from her underground days, but she is a pop star who has to sell records and appease a global audience. Simply put, ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ is a global hip-pop album.
