The Trinidad-born artist has already had eight singles to reach the Billboard Hot 100 in just two years. For 'Starships,' Minaj trades her usual hard-edged hip-hop beats for a more dance-pop, club vibe that will surely be on the playlists for live DJs everywhere. The song was produced by RedOne, who has produced recent hits such as Enrique Iglesias' 'I Like It,' Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance,' and Jennifer Lopez' 'On the Floor.' The party lyrics are meant to setup a celebratory tone, with Minaj proclaiming, "I'm on the floor, floor / I love to dance / So give me more more, till I can't stand."
'Starships' is now available for download on iTunes. You can also hear the new single on Fresh 40 by clicking on the link below.
