Biography

Any encounter with Nicki Minaj will arouse a heightened sense that there is more to her than meets the eye and inspire the desire to experience this modern day "Wonder Woman" Nicki Minaj - the name alone appeals to the decadence within us all. Whoever thinks that you can't "have your cake and eat it too" has obviously not met Nicki. The surname Minaj is the metaphor ... Read more in Amazon's Nicki Minaj Store

Product Description

Product Description

Debut studio album by the Trinidadian R&B artist. The album includes the singles 'Your Love', 'Right Thru Me', 'Moment 4 Life', 'Super Bass' and 'Girls Fall Like Dominoes' and features guest performers Eminem, Rihanna, Drake, will.i.am, Kanye West and Natasha Bedingfield.

BBC Review

It's been a while since hip hop, the planet's most testosterone-charged genre, had a female mouthpiece to truly mix it with the boys. Enter Nicki Minaj, five-foot-not-a-lot of Trinidadian-born, New York City-raised dynamite. Her debut album certainly explodes with requisite vitality too, even if a significant proportion of 13 potty-mouthed tracks fail to completely combust.

Replete with day-glo hair and cartoonish alter egos, Minaj employs mildly terrifying upfront sexuality last seen when Lil' Kim and Foxy Brown began trading catty pot shots in the late 1990s. Yet the rub leading up to this record was her major label paymasters would in some way desexualise Minaj's fearsome mix of potty-mouthed sass and fearless musical rulebook tearing.

The sceptics are made to look foolish on evidence of early loonfest Roman's Revenge, a schizophrenic alternate personality face-off with Eminem, she declaring loudly “I'm a c***”, Slim Shady turning in his most vicious rhymes for many moons. It's a potent combination, a bass music-led match made possibly closer to hell than heaven. And Minaj is hardly holding back on the subsequent Did It on 'Em, threatening to – metaphorically or otherwise – defecate on all comers.

It's a frenetic start, but the pace doesn't last, handing naysayers an opportunity to point out where the label's artistic direction may come into play, setting eyes on the charts rather than breaking new ground. Fly, featuring Rihanna, and Right Thru Me are the first moments where a sensation of wasted opportunity begins to nag.

Several novelty crossover attempts are slightly excruciating (see Check It Out re-appropriating Buggles' one-hit-wonder Video Killed the Radio Star), Kanye West sleepwalks through Blazin’ and Natasha Bedingfield is an incongruous name aiding closer Last Chance. But doubts are erased in the face of such self-aware diatribes as Dear Old Nicki, lyrics like “In hindsight, I loved your rawness and I loved your edge” approaching a missive to herself from the future.

Pink Friday isn't a classic by any means, then, but when Nicki Minaj is on fire nobody in hip hop – male or female – can extinguish her bright-burning talents.

If you don't like bad language you may struggle with this.
If on the other hand you don't mind a bit of top-class
potty-mouthed creativity you may very well love it to bits!

Nicki Minaj (aka Onika Tanya Maraj) shoots from the hip on
her debut album 'Pink Friday' and takes no prisoners. She is
mad and bad and just a little bit dangerous to know and to tell
you the truth, dirty or not, this is a very fine first outing.

Ms Minaj can sing. No doubt about it. Listen to the chorus on the
deliciously funky opening track 'Im The Best' if you need proof.
However, it's the rapping which really shines! This lady can spit
out words with the kind of fierce delivery and rhythmic attack
which only the very best in the genre can muster. Hooking up
with Eminem on the positively outrageous 'Roman's Revenge' is
an inspired pairing. Mr Mathers meets his match and sounds like
he's enjoying every last moment! Stripped-down, awkward, angular
and totally thrilling, you can feel the sparks flying between them!!

'Did It On 'em' is rude. Very rude indeed and very, very funny.
I kept thinking : "Noooooo...You can't say that...you just can't!"
- but she does and she doesn't give a damn! Coming out of a less
convincing mouth the scatological lyrics might well have sounded
immature and gratuitous. Here the profanity is blissfully correct.

Rihanna returns a favour collaborating with Ms Minaj on the lovely
duet 'Fly' (they perform together on 'Raining Men' on Rihanna's new
album 'Loud'). Both Divas deliver deliciously powerful performances.

'Save Me' has a strong tune cut through with skittering drum & bass
rhythms. The marriage of styles works wonderfully well.

CD was received from Amazon in good condition.

Overall an excellent cd....totally loved Nicki Minaj's catchy rap + poppy tunes.

It's recommended for listeners like me who aren't into hard core rap and still like their pop tunes.

Favourite tunes include Superbass (of course!), Moment 4 Life, Fly and Save Me.

Loved the music
Would not recommend listening to some of the tracks when kids are in the room as there is a bit of bad language

Love this product. Considering it was Nicki's first album, I think she did an amazing job. I bought this album after listening to her second one, and they just keep getting better!

This review is for: Pink Friday (Japan Edition) Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj is not the type of artist I would usually buy, but I recently heard a snippet of "Pound The Alarm" during "Big Brother UK" and then discovered through a visit to YouTube some other superb tracks such as "Muny", "Starships" and "Girls Fall Like Dominoes". Therefore, I had to buy "Pink Friday" & "Pink Friday - Roman Reloaded" (for other newbies like me, I discovered that these are actually 2 separate albums with totally different tracklists, not 2 editions of the same album - confusing because they are both called "Pink Friday"). I opted for the deluxe edition of "Pink Friday - Roman Reloaded" (Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded), but when it came to buying the "Pink Friday" CD I discovered that there are a bewildering number of editions available, some of which didn't include the two tracks I particularly wanted ("Muny" & "Girls Fall Like Dominoes"). There is the original 13 track CD, then there is the 'Super Bass' edition with 2 bonus tracks, then the Deluxe Edition with different bonus tracks again from the previous bonus tracks. On top of that, there are import versions such as the U.S. CD with 4 bonus tracks.... and so on. I was keen to get the best version available, so I did some extensive research and discovered the best version to be the Japan Edition which includes 20 tracks and gives you every permutation. It is the ultimate edition available, albeit expensive. I did weigh up whether to get more than one of the original CD's, but there always seemed to be something missing no matter which 2 CD's I would have purchased.

Format: Audio CD
Singing I'm the Best on the first track of her debut studio album, Nicki Minaj could not be more right. After showing her talent on collaborations with Mariah Carey (Up out my Face) and Christina Aguilera (Woohoo), the rapper and singer-songwriter got the chance to work with some amazing artists like Rihanna, Eminem and Kanye West for her own album as well. Amongst the best tracks are Roman's Revenge (ft. Eminem), Did it on'em, Fly (ft. Rihanna) Check it out (ft. will.i.am), Dear Old Nicki (best ballad), Last Chance (ft. Natasha Bedingfield), Your Love, Girls fall like Dominoes and Super Bass. Sassy and colourful! A must have!
