Nicki Minaj, ‘Super Bass’ – Song Spotlight
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.”
