Nicki Minaj - Pink Friday

When I first heard this whole album it came across very electronic and computer musicish!
I give big up's to Nick Minaj though! I think she's very talented. A great singer and rapper with a mean flow!
There are not too many women doing what she is doing and I don't mind it and I rate her the best female hip-hop artist out there at the moment. Her awards show that and how many artists can get Eminem, Kanye West and to feature on there first album?

This album has a few hits with her first single being 'Your Love'. A great chilled beat with Nicki showing her rapping and singing skills in a very stylish way. The video clip even featuring Michael Jai White as her love interest is also kinda cool!

Nicki uses auto-tune also in a few songs but mostly in 'Check it Out' which was produced by I didn't mind this effect because we are so used to it with and with the sample of 'Video Killed the Radio Star' by The Buggles it was pulled off in a dance club hit fashion.

This album has some good Rap/Hip-Hop production with some very dirty, rough beats but also some nice chilled out electronic music! have a listen to 'Did It On'em', 'Moment 4 Life (feat. Drake)' and even 'Blazin (feat. Kanye West)'. All these songs also I believe have some RnB characteristics.

Overall, I hadn't heard much of Nicki Minaj before this album but a great start to her career and I reckon she has a lot of skill and will generate many fans from Pink Friday. She is an artist who seems very versatile in the fact that she can rap and sing and I believe you will be hearing a lot of Nicki Minaj on the radio in the future!!

I gave Pink Friday 3 out of 5 stars!

Peace and Love
