The good advice I always hated

Nicki Minaj - "Right Through Me" (Tags) by nickiminajorg

Rapper Nicki Minaj's new single, "Right Through Me," may tone down the playful obscenities of her featuring appearances in favor of continuing the sparkling modern ballad feel of "Your Love," but it matures and improves that template. The excellent if lyrically incongruous chorus hook overshadows the verses' story, an up-and-down relationship that the narrator sometimes sabotages but ultimately wants, with a thoroughly loved-up feel. It remains to be seen whether or not "Right Through Me" will stay just as lovable when subjected to the radio test--this might be the sort of song best played on your iPod--but for now, it's a welcome addition to pop's charm bracelet.

Nicki Minaj's single "Right Through Me" is not yet available for sale, but you can buy her earlier work on iTunes. Her album, Pink Friday, is out this November but is not yet available for preorder.

"Your Love" won me over, but I don't know if this is a hit despite a great sound. It feels like the backing track is just a little too sparse. Is this a final version or a leak?

You'll find Nicki getting more and more watered down from what made her famous -- i.e. hooker rhymez! She's been very much a learn-from-how-the-leaks-fare artist.

This is...alright. It's no "Your Love." What worries me about her is that she boxed herself into a corner with the Annie Lennox and Buggles samples. What is she to the masses without a familiar retro melody?

i kind of like her and want her to succeed, but i'm with D'Luv on this one. I do like this song a lot though, it's charmed me, so I'm sticking with her for now :)

I love this track, I'm really looking forward to Pink Friday--I mean how often is there a big buzz about an album from a female rapper?
