NICKI MINAJ proves she’s not slowing down anytime soon with the release of her latest single “Starships,” after her tremendous feat with “Super Bass.” The song lyrics aptly describes this single’s smashing success as it continues to soar high through the charts —- ‘Starships were meant to fly /Hands up and touch the sky / Can’t stop ‘cause we’re so high /Let’s do this one more time.’ It has broken through globally charting Top 20 at iTunes in over 40 countries and on its way to 5 million tracks sold. Her newest album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, has also sold nearly 1.5 million albums worldwide.
Nicki Minaj’s 22-track second studio album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded (Deluxe Edition), is not a reissue of the original Pink Friday album — despite its confusing title. It’s an all-new release, led by its official first single, the club-ready anthem “Starships.” For this album, Nicki worked with a variety of producers such as Hit-Boy, Dr. Luke, Ester Dean, Rico Beats, RedOne and Oak. She also collaborated with artists like Cam’ron & Rick Ross in “I Am Your Leader”, 2 Chainz in “Beez In the Trap”, Lil Wayne in “Roman Reloaded”, Nas, Drake & Young Jeezy in “Champion”, Chris Brown in “Right By My Side”, Bobby V in “Sex in the Lounge” and Beenie Man in “Gun Shot” plus the urban tunes “Roman Holiday”, “Come On a Cone”, “Hov Lane”, “Whip It”, “Automatic”, “Beautiful Sinner”, “Marilyn Monroe”, “Young Forever”, “Fire Burns”, “Stupid Hoe”, “Turn Me On”, “Va Va Voom”, “Masquerade” and the next official single, “Pound the Alarm”.
