Here is the Nicki Minaj album song list for her extravagant debut, "Pink Friday." Just as the title promises, this is one colorful hip hop album. Nicki Minaj is more than willing to be this generation's Madonna in terms of creativity and style, and this list will lead you through her first major work of art.
- "I'm the Best" Nicki Minaj let's her "Pink Friday" album begin by proclaiming her place as queen of hip hop. She skillfully merges the braggadocio with inspiration for other women pursuing their own dreams.
- "Roman's Revenge" (featuring Eminem) This bizarre ride into the dark side of anger finds Nicki and Eminem bring a horror movie the size of Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" to the ears of those that doubt their talent.
- "Did It On 'Em" If you are squeamish, especially when it comes to un-ladylike comments, then this is not your song. She willingly pushes the limits of disrespect towards her competition.
- "Right Thru Me" Minaj comes with a bouncy, catchy love song about men that can see the real Nicki Minaj, regardless of any hype and hysterics. This distinctive track has a refreshing vulnerability among the other more aggressive songs on "Pink Friday."
- "Fly" (featuring Rihanna) Nicki Minaj finds herself in a comfortable subject matter here — perseverance to succeed and flipping the middle finger to those that hate her for it.
- "Save Me" With a larger-than-life sound bed with pillows made of uplifting noise, Minaj comes with a true anthem. She even sings the chorus herself where she begs for strength and assistance from stress.
- "Moment 4 Life" (featuring Drake) This up-tempo, fairy tale soundtrack is full of energy and motivation. Nicki's male contemporary, Drake, joins her in a verbal quest to make their dreams last forever.
- "Check It Out" (featuring will.i.am) With Will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas by her side for a bonafide monster club song, don't expect the cure of the world's ills here; just dance.
- "Blazin" (featuring Kanye West) Over epic synthesizer keys, Nicki and Kanye thrash through with multiple quotable lyrics galore. Minaj's wild list of references includes: Lebron James, Gatorade, Soccer Moms, and even Bambi.
- "Here I Am" An electronic assault of racing car sounds over raw hip hop drum track gives this gothic song a powerful edge. Pain and subtle sadness are blended together along with brutal honesty.
- "Dear Old Nicki" A comforting piano gets slashed with synthesizers and bouncy bass as Nicki speaks about her past. She yearns for aspects of herself that she misses the most and explains the changes she has made for the better.
- "Your Love" The tone of Nicki Minaj's "Pink Friday" softens for a much-needed breather from all the hyper fireworks and colorful excitement she has shown thus far. Her rapping is so smooth it is practically crooning, though it is still strong.
- "Last Chance" (featuring Natasha Bedingfield) Nicki Minaj brings this appropriately titled final track with her bold, neon-colored delivery and wordplay. She lets us all know that this is just the beginning.
