Nicki Minaj – Crush Of The Day
Nicki Minaj's 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' dropped yesterday, and we can't stop listening to it. Not kidding. The Queens-based rapper has had a stratospheric rise to fame since debuting on the mixtape circuit in 2007. 2010's 'Pink Friday' brought her to the attention of mainstream heads, and it's been all hot fire and tight pants from that point.
'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' brings Minaj's male alter ego Roman Zolanski back to the stage for something of a concept album, and while the dance tracks are a little flaccid, the more hip-hop heavy ones work spectacularly. We'll also let it slide that she wants to be a dude. A huge number of guests appear on the album, from long-time collaborator Lil Wayne to heavyweights like Nas and Rick Ross.
She's also doing a campaign for MAC Cosmetics with Ricky Martin, for some reason.
