Everything that’s interesting in pop and dance music right now is inside the new Nicki Minaj album “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded”, released on the 3rd of April.

I’m getting upset because although this record is so damn hot, the videos haven’t been released yet. Nicki says the video for “Starships”, with the constant hands-in-the-air roar, is going to be blah, blah, blah… and SO blah, blah, blah…

Nothing this good hasn’t come out -probably- since some Missy Elliot record of early 2000. Her Grammy Performance is unbelievable, she can rap and if for a moment you can distract yourself from the screen, you ‘ll think she’s the new Diamanda Gallas.

She probably has bad taste and her David Guetta video for “Turn Me On” puts Scorsese’s film, “Hugo” to shame.

I used to think this album was only the 3 cool tracks listed bellow and was so intimidated to write anything about it, because I have nothing on Nicki other than this release, but in the songs and videos so far we have had the best Grace Jones reference in a long time, a really bad album cover, and some of the coolest beats yet.

Listen to: “Champion (Feat. Nas, Drake & Young Jeezy)”, “I Am Your Leader (Feat. Cam’ron & Rick Ross)” & “Come On A Cone”.
