The whole problem with Nicki Minaj is that her high squeaky voice makes her sound like a cartoon character. When she’s doing her ‘serial killer barbie’ personality, that actually works, but whenever she attempts anything else, it makes her sound ridiculous. In addition, I know that combination rapper-singers are a big thing right now, but when her label mate Drake tried that, it was because he actually had a really good voice. Nicki…doesn’t. I will say this, though…whoever’s writing her hooks is doing a good job. This song isn’t particularly well-performed, but it’s certainly catchy.
