Nicki Minaj teams up with Black Eyed Peas mainman will.i.am to celebrate the late-night lifestyle on their new collaborative single 'Check It Out.' The track will be included on Minaj's debut solo album, 'Pink Friday,' out this fall.

'Check It Out' features the nearly constant repetition of the piano and vocal hook from The Buggles' 1979 classic 'Video Killed the Radio Star,' which is famous for being the first video ever played on MTV.

As the incessant "Oh-a oh's" pretty much bore a hole in your head, the duo verbally flip the bird to their haters while on their way into the hottest dance club in town.

If you're looking for deep lyrical insights, jeez, are you at the wrong party: "I can't believe it / It's so amazing / This club is heated / I can't believe it / This beat is banging / Check it out check it out check it out check it out check it out (x2) / Yeah yeah I'm feeling it now / Check this muthaf---er out!"

Nicki Minaj hopes to get a jump on Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year, by releasing 'Pink Friday' a few days before on Nov. 23. In the meantime, you should, well, check out 'Check It Out' over on AOL Radio's New R&B First station.
