Nicki Minaj – “Freedom” | New Music

“Freedom” might not mark an end to the bubblegum nonsense pop that has both made Nicki Minaj such a commercial success and such a difficult listen for me but it really is the best thing I’ve heard from her in a long while.

The track is the latest single from her forthcoming Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up (out November 19th) and it manages to use her teen-girl appeal in a way that is soft and subtle, and moreover, genuinely emotive. I could babble on and on about how it’s like a sadder, more effective, “Moment For Life” and how I now feel like a guilty hater but I think I’ll just let Nicki do the talking…
