EDITORS’ NOTES

The Pinkprint has traces of the candy-colored hooks and wicked-fast lyricism that make Nicki Minaj one of the most versatile superstars in the game, but there’s little of the dance-pop dazzle that propelled her earlier crossover hits like “Super Bass” and “Starships." Instead, Minaj’s third album is filled with slinking tempos and heavy-hitting collaborations—Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, Drake, Lil Wayne, and Chris Brown turn up before the halfway point. Simmering downtempo tunes like “Only,” “Get on Your Knees,” and “Pills N Potions” can come across as confessional or coy, but Minaj's whiplash-inducing verses on the Sir Mix-a-Lot–sampling “Anaconda” and the punchline-packed “I’m Feeling Myself” leave us in awe of her commanding presence.

This is Nicki at her best.

And it's not only because of the amazing production, her ability to tweak her voice and spit raps like its nothing, but because this album is *her*. Give it a shot, you'll love it. Thank you Nicki.

2015

The "Blue Print" of 2015. Nicki (Minaj) absolutely channels her inner JAY Z in this album and incredibly murders the tracks with her lyrical flow.
