Nicki Minaj wants a guy with the ‘Super Bass’ on a song from the deluxe edition of her ‘Pink Friday’ album.

Despite its title, ‘Super Bass’ doesn’t actually make prominent use of bass. Instead, synth beats provide a poppy backing track as Minaj raps about the kind of dude she’s seeking:

“This one is for the boys with the booming system / Top down, AC with the coolest system / When he come up in the club, he be blazin’ up / Got stacks on deck like he savin’ up / And he ill, he real, he might gotta deal / He pop bottles and he got the right kind of bill / He cold, he dope, he might sell coke / He always in the air, but he never fly coach”

And just in case the guy she likes doesn’t recognize her, Nicki gets right to the point: “Somebody please tell him who the eff I is / I am Nicki Minaj, I mack them dudes up, back coupes up and chuck the deuce up.”

‘Super Bass’ is the kind of song likely to go over big with audiences on Britney Spears‘ summer tour, should Minaj be confirmed as Brit’s opening act.

‘Pink Friday’ has sold more than a million copies in the US, and the single ‘Moment 4 Life,’ featuring Drake, is still in the Top 20.
