New Music: Nicki Minaj – ‘Pills N Potions’

Pills N Potions

It’s finally here. Nicki Minaj debuts “Pills N Potions,” the first single off her upcoming third album The Pink Print, and it’s just what the doctor ordered. After street records like “Yass Bish!!” and “Chi-Raq,” the rap queen delivers a heart-wrenching love ballad, produced by Dr. Luke (“Va Va Voom”) and co-written by Ester Dean.

“Pills n potions / We’re overdosing / I’m angry, but I still love you,” she sings on the hook.

“It feels very uplifting and it feels very soulful,” Nicki told Rap-Up TV. “It’s a great, I feel, indicator of what The Pink Print will feel like in terms of the storyline of that song.”

The follow-up to 2012′s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, due later this year, marks a return to her roots. “The Pink Print will remind people why they fell in love with Nicki Minaj,” she said. “And I think that needs to be done.”

Hear Nicki pour her heart out on the personal anthem.

The buzz has been building for Nicki Minaj’s third album, and the time has finally come for her to drop the first single. Before she hit the stage at PowerHouse 2014 on Saturday, the Young Money diva dished to Rap-Up TV about the track, which is expected to debut on Wednesday.

“It feels very uplifting and it feels very soulful,” she shared. “It’s a great, I feel, indicator of what The Pink Print will feel like in terms of the storyline of that song.”

The album, due sometime this year, marks a return to her roots. “The Pink Print will remind people why they fell in love with Nicki Minaj,” she added. “And I think that needs to be done.”

She also revealed that Lil Wayne has sent her a track for his final album Tha Carter V. “He did send me something, but you know Wayne is so unpredictable,” she said. “You never know what’s going to make it until the last, very last ending. But you know, Wayne is my baby and I love him.”

Nicki Minaj

It was all about Nicki at Power 106′s PowerHouse 2014 at the Honda Center in Anaheim on Saturday night. Following sets from Jennifer Lopez, Trey Songz, and ScHoolboy Q, the head Barb commanded the stage with a stripped-down set that showcased her hip-hop roots.

A sound bite of Denzel Washington from Training Day played before Nicki emerged from the smoke to “Lookin Ass.” Wearing a Chromat cage bra, red Brian Lichtenberg skirt, and Guiseppi Zanotti ambush boots, the sexy rapper continued with “Chi-Raq” and her remix to “Danny Glover.”

When she was asked to perform at PowerHouse, Nicki told the crowd that she wasn’t prepared and wanted to stand out from fellow performers like J.Lo, Trey Songz, and Juicy J.

“I said what can I do? So I said, ‘Fuck it.’ I’ma go back to my mixtape days and come out with a motherfuckin’ DJ,” she said. “‘Cause there’s one thing they can’t do and that’s be the motherfuckin’ queen of hip-hop.”

Surprise guest Soulja Boy joined her for her latest song “Yasss Bish” before Nicki took it back with her biggest hits including “Super Bass,” “Starships,” and “Moment 4 Life.”

Watch her 30-minute set below.
