New Music: Nicki Minaj – ‘Starships’

Starships

Nicki Minaj proved she can still pack a punch with “Stupid Hoe,” and now she pleases her pop fans with her crossover single “Starships.” The Harajuku Barbie blasts off with super-producer RedOne (Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez) on the radio-friendly record, which will appear on her sophomore album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, due April 3.

“Starships were meant to fly/ Hands up and touch the sky/ Can’t stop ’cause we’re so high/ Let’s do this one more time,” she sings on the infectious party anthem, which features a brief sample of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.”

An excited Nicki spoke about the song in an interview with Ryan Seacrest. “‘Starships’ is one of my absolute, absolute favorite records on Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded,” she said. “It makes people feel happy and that’s all I want. I want to start the year off with making people feel good.”

What do you think of “Starships”? Let us know!

    Really? Reply:

    @Jaymalls,
    right. No one should call her the “queen of hip hop” EVER again because nothing about her music is hip hop.

    StarsAreBlind Reply:

    @Really?, It was. This is the most pop it’s ever been, so keep it cute. Not everybody wants to be stuck in one lane their whole life anyway, and every rapper doesn’t strive to be hip-hop all day, so please stop throwing it around like it’s an insult to be different.

    @StarsAreBlind, “Super Bass”, “Turn Me On”, “Where Dem Girls At”…..she been “popping” up her sound left & right.

    STOP.

    watever Reply:

    @StarsAreBlind,
    she can be “different” all she wants, but people need to stop calling what she does hip hop because it’s not. she’s clearly TRYING to be a pop star, so people need to drop that hip hop title when comes to nicki.

    At least she was rapping on Super Bass!
    Ayyyyyy Nicki.. 4 songs out and Im still waiting.
    I will be bootlegging your shit. You gave me crap so I wont bother.
    Oh and please dont waste your time calling me a hater… Im a fan.. not a fucking ZOMBIE.. i dont have to like everything she put out.

    StarsAreBlind Reply:

    @JustSaying, But you also don’t have to insult her, and fans actually buy the album you broke hoe. You clearly didn’t see her Grammy performance. Nicki is still being her crazy ass self, or all her music would sound like this. You don’t release a song called Stupid Hoe if you’re selling out and just want to be put on the radio. For all you know this is the real Nicki.

    JustSaying Reply:

    @StarsAreBlind,
    How exactly am I insulting her Zombie? Cuz I dont like the crap she putting out?
    It is EXACTLY her Grammy performance that threw me OVER the edge. She took it too far! That is NOT Nicki… the first 3 songs she dropped are not NICKI!
    She took this roman shit too far… All three songs are too damn much… she trying to hard. A fan will buy an album thats WORTH buying… I dont think this crap even deserves a download.
    So keep being a zombie hoe… one day shell shit on your face and youll sit there smiling thinking its the greatest thing in the world.

    OH and… If Nicki WAS going to give me POP.. I would have appreciated it if she tried to be different.
    Instead she gave me this Flo-Rida, Katy Perry, Rihanna & David Guetta.. sounds like every other song on the radio… pop crap.
    If she wants to do pop she should try and AT LEAST be original.

    And then she releases this Fist-pumping Pop crap?

    Anyway I don’t really like the song for Nicki but it sounds like it’ll be a hit. Cant really say she’s a sellout because she came in the door saying she wanted to get money and Start an empire & a brand. Let her get paper. This pop side is one side of the chick.

    @pinkfridayhoe, You do NOT have to make Pop music to “crossover.” Wu Tang crossed over with their true roots. LAURYN HILL crossed over sticking to her roots. Pac crossed over sticking to his roots. And many other REAL rap artist crossed over mastering Rap/HipHop. Nicki is just a Pop artist now. Pink Friday was barely rap anyways so I’m not surprised. But like what @Kane said, she’s burning out and it’s sad because she’s ONLY on her Sophomore..

    She’s trying to use a song like Starships and Super Bass to get her name ot to the pop audience so when the album comes out, they’ll actually want to listen to a REAL rap song. All we have are four songs to go by.

  48. Um.Well.Sure

    I’m COMPLETELY confused by all these singles. Where is she trying to go? It’s one thing to be a versatile artist, however she’s got herself a pretty decent pop fanbase off of songs like Super Bass and Turn Me On. The problem is she’s going to lose her HIP-HOP or “URBAN” fanbase because she’s giving them nothing.

    Roman In Moscow, Stupid Hoe, & Roman Holiday were all god-awful, and she might have put a huge dent in her career with that awful and disrespectful grammy performance. This song, is a completely generic pop song like anything else on the radio, but it will probably be a smash hit. She should’ve just did this at the grammys, and made this the first single period. If this surprises anyone it shouldn’t, she’s not a rapper anymore, she wants to be in the pop realm. She’s pretty much like a black Katy Perry who raps too

    now why the hell did she not do this song instead of the evil performance that was the grammys?…this would have been what more fun and way more ‘super bass’ nikki?…its a pop hit…its a song that people would have covered all day…this would have made more sense to stay in this lane then try and prove whatever point she was tryin to make at the grammys…#badCAREERmoves

    I wasn’t expecting something like this from Nicki. Bravo to her for trying a new sound. Her last album was full of a lot of sluggish tracks and ended up being a bit boring IMO. If her new album is more well-rounded with tracks like this, I’ll be buying a copy.

    If you don’t like Nicki, don’t click on the link. Second, Nicki has a much broader amount of fans than any other hip hop artist, so she has to think about them too. She has pop and hip hop fans. So basically, this song is the Super Bass of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. Since Super Bass and the Femme Fatale tour with Britney Spears, Nicki has more pop fans and she is giving them maybe 1-3 songs that will make them happy. Calm down, can an artist think outside of the box? Nobody complained about that bull crap 808′s and Heartbreak’s Kanye West album.

    [Reply]

    TRA Reply:

    @SMH, I understand that Nicki Minaj has to make songs for both her pop fanbase, and her hip hop fanbase, the reason why people are criticizing her, is because the last 3 songs Nicki has put out have been horrible, and totally garbage. Kanye West’s 808s and Heartbreak album was a good album, but it wasn’t his best album. If Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday:Roman Reloaded album gets bad reviews, and struggles to go platinum, then people are going to criticize her even more. Even if Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday:Roman Reloaded album goes platinum, people are going to criticize her if the album gets bad reviews, plain and simple.

I’m not knockin her for trying to expand her horizon and for reachin out to her pop fanbase, but she seems to be makin a complete change all around and that’s gonna dissappoint a lot of her urban fans (the majority of her fanbase). Right now her music is all over the place and people aren’t gonna take her seriously as an artist anymore. They’re gonna think it’s all a gimmick. Hopefully the album will prove otherwise!

She is doing the kind of music she wants sure it might not be your cup of tea. But don’t sit up here talking about oh her career is over because weather she does a POP song or a RAP song hell even a R&B song as long as its catchy and sounds decent for that genre. She will continue to make her money and gain fame. Stop hating on old girl because she’s living her dream.

She did a great job on Dancing with the Stars, the buzz tracks she has been putting out was true to her style and to her fans, and she’s just been getting her feet again, preparing to come back out with a bang. What’s so terrible about that? I’m not a Nicki hater at all, I love Nicki btw, but I can’t deny that I feel like she’s becoming overly saturated and it just doesn’t seem like she’s been putting much effort into her music lately. And yes, that Grammy performance looked like a complete joke and lots of people were disappointed.

    @Dopeness, i’m not saying Kim is SUPERB…actually, i wasn’t even comparing Nicki to Kim so there’s no need to get offensive…jeez, lol…but if u do wanna compare, let’s be rational…times are a lot different than they were during Kim’s days…Kim was the QUEEN during her era, just like Nicki is the QUEEN at the moment…there’s never really been many female maintstream rappers in the game, and let’s give Kim credit for being really the first to do it BIG…she paved the way for many female rappers, ESPECIALLY Nicki!! Nicki jocked Lil Kim’s style, there’s no denying that!! And Lil Kim was Nicki’s true inspiration, so that alone proves that Kim’s a big influence. Kim has set lots of standards, as a rapper and as a pop artist (Grammy for Moulin Rouge, etc), Platinum albums (1st female rapper to do it), and she has longevity (16 years)…so let’s give her the credit she deserves…she’s a female rap legend…Nicki is doing big things right now but her success won’t last forever! Who knows, 2 years from now some new chick might be holding the torch and u guys will be on here saying how Nicki is a “has been” lol…ohhh how the tables will turn, haha

    [Reply]

    SdotB Reply:

    @SdotB, and who cares how many twitter followers Nicki has, or about the MAC line…those aren’t valid points…in fact, there was no such thing as twitter during Kim’s era, so how can u compare that? And back then female rappers weren’t really getting the opportunity to have those types of endorsements (make up lines, fragrance, etc.), that wasn’t the trend for artists like it is today…there’s no need to nit-pick about who did what, they both are big stars and have set standards…why even compare these new artists to legends who paved the way for them? They should be compared to other new artists, that seems to be more rational.

    [Reply]

    Dopeness Reply:

    @SdotB, I understand that. But people (not you necessarily) always want to down play Nicki and act like she is wack…and with all the shit she is doing, it is very OBVIOUS she isn’t. Okay twitter wasn’t around back then…but it is now. where is Kim’s loyal fans? Okay they didn’t have endorsements back then…they do now..where’s kim at? Legends should be honored. A real legend would support. uplift. be proud they influenced someone. And honestly, maybe Kim doesn’t want to be a “Sell out” but she needs to squash the beef, make a damn song with Nicki…and start to win over some of Nicki’s fan base. Nicki is smart…with every collabo..she gains fans…some Rihanna fans, some Mariah Carey fans, some Sean Kingston and Trey Song fans…Taylor Swift fans..etc. idk, i just want music to be everyone expressing themselves, make their songs…and just support each other. Male rappers do it. Jay-Z and Kanye, could have destroyed each other and create some crazy feud…but instead they were like fuck that…let’s make an album…and there ya go. WTT was released and it sold amazing. lol

    Dopeness Reply:

    @SdotB, Alright no one is denying Kim was the Queen of her era. and yes nicki is ruling right now. But Kim if she were wise, would work WITH Nicki and together RISE rather than bash her. Nicki has given Kim credit numerous times saying she IS her inspiration, and she did pave the way for her. Who are you to say it won’t last…for all you know in another 16 years she may still be spittin’ “rah rah like a dungeon dragon” remix. lol There are rising female artist. Iggy! Briana! Lola Monroe! and guess what they get along with Nicki and appreciate her. SUPPORT EACH OTHER…so everyone can grind and make money. Yes Kim deserves credit. But don’t discredit Nicki and down play her accomplishments because she had a “bad” grammy performance, or because there’s three songs that aren’t deemed “hip-hop” Point is…it is hard work. to do all that she is doing now. and all the girl is trying to do is live a dream, and create a brand. and an empire. Can you fault her for being ambitious?

    [Reply]

    SdotB Reply:

    @Dopeness, I think you are taking my comment out of context…I NEVER downplayed Nicki’s accomplishments…i said that i thought her Grammy performance was terrible and i feel like she isn’t putting much effort into her music at the moment. And I didn’t say her success won’t last, i said it won’t last FOREVER, meaning she won’t always have the torch in her hand, there will always be a newer and younger artist to take ur place, just like she’s doing to Kim right now. And why the hell would Kim wanna work with her after Nicki took her precious time to release a song about her called “Stupid Hoe”?? Hell, lots of Nicki’s songs are diss tracks to Kim. Nicki is the one who should show Kim respect and squash the beef, she’s the newbie…and Kim doesn’t need millions of followers on twitter and endorsement deals, she doesn’t have to prove anything to anyone b/c she already had major success. Like I said, this is a different era, no veteran should have to step down and prove anything to these young artists. Kim has done her deeds, what more do u need from her besides some new music? (which she is currently working on)…I hate to see the new generation come in the game like they God’s gift to the world, like they the ones who invented music (especially when most have no talent AT ALL). It’s about respect! And we all (Nicki fans/stans too) should at least show some respect and give Kim the credit she deserves…there’s no Nicki without Kim, NOT the other way around!

    @KeepItReal, Cause Kim looks disgusting…and make up isn’t the reason she looks like the back of a warthogs ass. It’s the PLASTIC surgery she has had. I can care less if she lightens her skin…her skin bleaching isn’t the issue…the extensive plastic surgery is the issue. Especially when you bitch and hate on Nicki for being “Plastic” and “Phoney” and a “Clown” yet…you aint that much better.

Kim fans be gone. y’all just need to wait on the EP that was promised in 2011 and her so called new song [YAWNS] who cares and oh yeah, tell her Uncle Sam still wants his $1million

    [Reply]

  114. Kynki

    VERSATILE YOU BITCHES!!!!!!!! She said in her Seacrest interview AND on twitter that her hip-hop stuff was going to be on the album. This is what generic radio listeners want to hear from Nicki right now, especially after the success of Super Bass. Nicki knows us Barbz and she knows we can appreciate all of her forms/ genres of music. If Nicki wants to take over Hip-Hop then move to Pop for a little while and then hop right back over to Hip-Hop she is going to do it. All y’all complainin on here isn’t going to stop this OR her album from being a HUGE success. Old nicki might not come back EVER but who cares, new Nicki still slays just in different ways at different times with different AMAZING pieces of art each and every time so get off Kim’s dick and sit y’all asses down till her new song comes out and then go post something on her thread about how you like her song. Y’all always mad that they make references shit can lead back to one another but y’all fuel it. If y’all just let the two artists be them then you can have both or you can have one or you can have none. So Stop throwin that haterade all over nicki when it’s obviously missing her completely. In other WORDS she BOSSED this track up!

    At the end of the day Nicki Minaj is not on the level of Lil Kim u know why cause Lil Kim got classics. Classic album, classic songs, classic era, classic style. What does Nicki Minaj have? A career built off what Lil Kim made famous in the first place. Nicki Minaj music wont be remembered if she dies cause its trash. When u come into the industry u do it to change music, to make your mark, to be remembered and Nicki Minaj wants to be remembered as a Gimmick??????

    Dopeness Reply:

    @nojusthenry, Nicki likes Kim. Kim just went into a jealous rampage. If she were smart she would have done a song with Nicki and win over some of Nickis fans…and THEN launch her solo shit..but instead all this time she should have been releasing music..she has been feuding with someone who…is speeding pass her. Truth of the matter is…When Kim was released from jail…she had a good3-5 years to release music and she didnt…her ass sat down and ate frosted flakes..and NOW that Nicki is on the rise…she wants to come out of the woodworks…smh.

    First off ppl its ok to switch genre’s but to rub complete shit in our faces is an outrage! um mean seriously she’s not trying anymore..you know why? because you’d buy an album with her shitting in a toilet and call it a masterpiece! forreal at the awards on the red carpet the reporters were laughing at her. people are taking her as a joke.. um mean that’s how you wanna be remebered? for your antics, your gimmick,but not for your music?! ppl seem to forget she’s a MUSIC artist not a broadway actor,sheez.

    Im a die hard fan woke up turned to kiss fm to hear this and i was so disappointed because i have all 3 mistakes and pink Friday i know her longevity and her potential. This is not what i want . I know she says she doesn’t havery to conform but 4 sings in and i only like 2 another is still growing on me. I just don’t want to be let down April 3rd. Believe me Im buying the album but i can’t honestly stand behind Nicki in the barber shop with shit like this being her alternate route. Young forever and marilyn Monroe can skip the album to. Id if she for got she has a strong hiphop backing and a lot of black fans who don’t frequent dance clubs

    Give the girl some credit, she had some money to work with for this next album, she bought 4 redOne tracks, they will most likely be BIG pop tracks, look at what what this man has done for Lady Gaga (producing some of her biggest hits) Nicki is hoping for the same boost in name recognition and status. We know she can master the hip hop charts if she chooses, lets she how she fares in the pop world. Bottom line, its about making money, HER ego, and Nicki’s goals of becoming a mogul like J and recognized like Madonna.

I would like the track if SHE weren’t the one who came out with it. Tired of all the top40 eating up dance music like its something new. The true clubbers and lovers of house music know what real dance music is. “Party music” to all of you mainstream wannabee’s but its a true lifestyle to live and breathe electronic music. Keep Ur hip hop out of my dance music. What happened to the days when everyone hated “that techno shit” ?!?!?! Followers! Get Ur own sound
