Nicki Minaj, 'Starships' -- New Song


Nicki Minaj, arguably one of hip-hop's most successful artists at the moment, has just released 'Starships,' a new track off her forthcoming rerelease of her first album, 'Pink Friday.' 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' is set to be released April 3, 2012 and will contain brand new tracks as well as all of the songs from her first album which helped her reach superstar status.

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.
