New Music: Future f/ Nicki Minaj – ‘Rock Star’

Future and Nicki Minaj

Future and Nicki Minaj’s collaboration finally comes to light. The DJ Clue-produced song, which features a sample of George Michael’s 1984 hit “Careless Whisper,” was not included on Future’s album Honest because the British pop icon did not clear it.

On the flashy record, the rich and famous duo revel in their extravagance. Future flaunts his ice and trees, while Nicki stunts on her bossy verse, boasting about million-dollar shows in India and diamonds on her wrist.

Listen to them celebrate their rock star status.

    The bar is set so low for Nicki she is spitting such corny lines and being helmed as lyrical in a landscape that coexists with the likes of ppl like Cole, Lamar, Eminem and some of the best sputters in the game. I mean she said

    Special Olympics, imma go dumb on it???????

    We need to start holding our stars at a higher standard and stop accepting mediocrity

    @Donn, Exactly… Nicki can rap but her bar is so low. But I feel like she sent that for herself.

    Agree with Donn, she can rap but those lyrics are not classic or game changing just her normal nursery rhyme type of style to catch the kids ears!!

    @what, Shut Up! This song was done LAST YEAR! They just didn’t give it to go on Future’s “Honest” album. He said he was going to release it later- — well here you go.

    The barbz are in panic mode because the so called Queen is struggling to chart (how she would like) in her prime. She spents years putting down other females saying she will check for them when they on top of #Billboard WELL.. lmao @IggyAzalea is the “new Queen”. And as for as her skills, they are very mediocre. She’s like the female 2chainz or something. The stuff she say does not move mountains and part seas, sorry. Listen to pillNpotion lyrics, basically same shit from Moment in Life. SAme ole SAme.. how nobody respects her and downing the other females in the game. Been overrated, now that hot air balloon is starting to deflate. Kim warned of this devil in sheeps clothing.

    @serious business, Iggy’s album, aside from ‘Work’ and ‘Change Your Life’ is garbage, imo. HOWEVER, her mixtapes “Glory” and “Ignorant Art” are great and what she should have put out. The studio execs hands are all in this. I guess they don’t want a woman going too hard, especially if it’s a pretty, white, blond woman. It just fux with their image of what she should be (which she has openly admitted). I was so ready to buy “The New Classic” but was disappointed. If her free music is going to keep being far better then I guess she’ll be saving me some money.

    @serious business, iggy isnt a queen and if u didnt notice nicki is still on top her song is climbing the charts its now at 34,nicki not worried about the song cuz is she was she would have put another one out,fancy is the only big song she has, her song with ariana grande is starting to drop on billboard,all her other songs bounce,change your life and work are all having a hard time charting,if nicki openly said shes not expecting for her song to hit number one becuz shes not doing poppy dance music for this album, you cant tell me that fancy has more meaning then pills n pottions,fancy number one cuz charliexcx,no one is checking for iggy rapping,all she says is shit like “drop it low pick it up just like this”wow she so lyrical huh,nicki has more things to worry about then one song,like sellin her fragrence her mascoto her beats and clothing line,nickis a brand and she doesnt need a number one cuz shes worth about 45million, guess whos worth only 1million?the person with the number one hit lol

    @funny, if Iggy is the new queen of rap then Carly Rae Jenpson or whatever is the queen of pop. after this Black widow song, Iggy better pull something historic outta her behind to have staying power.if i was her id keep doing hip hop song with pop hooks. But as far as actual HIPHOP queen? thats all Nicki! Nicki became popular in 2010 with her LYRICS!nd style not pop music. I believe Pills and Potions is just a song to hold us over for that second single tbh. it #34 this week and rising!!!

    People are discussing lyricism on a song basically about bragging… *facepalms*

    Now what now? Reply:

    @GEEZUS, So hip-hop isn’t supposed to be lyrically clever or urban poetry anymore? Given the crap that comes out now, I can buy that that’s the case.

    I agree that the bar is SO low and so many people have crawled right under it with Nicki. They know good and well that she doesn’t have to do much more than show up and rap. If she put out ‘Old McDonald’ people would still eat it up.

    How absurd.

    hk Reply:

    @Now what now?, lol yall taking that “bar is set low” crap and running with it now lol just like the “Nicki is over” crap. Just because you say it alot or loud dosent mean its true. when Nicki cant get on billboard anymore, then she will be over, when all her businesses fail, then she will be over. Respect the woman for holding it down. Where is your music ??????????

  21. ...

    this song technically wasn’t supposed to be released b/c it didn’t make the album as planned, but fans begged for it so… just remember you would have never heard it had ppl not begged for it. he leaked it for the fans they aren’t trying to wow anyone.
