The bad news? Nicki Minaj has pushed back the release of her upcoming third studio album, The Pinkprint, from November 24th to December 15th. The good news? The fiery MC has softened that announcement by releasing the album’s star-studded new single, teaming with Drake, Lil Wayne, and Chris Brown for “Only”.
Just so everyone’s clear from note one, Minaj clarifies that she “never fucked Wayne, never fucked Drake”, before launching into a series of increasingly sexual and boisterous rhymes (which include references to cupcakes and “butt tape”). To keep pace, Drake opts to make an extended butt joke and a couple NBA references (those who can’t play watch…), while Wayne sounds especially stoned as he mumbles over lines comparing Hollygrove to the Mecca. It’s not the strongest effort these three have been attached to, but it’s a great display of how their separate and distinct personalities can still play off one another nicely. Listen in below.
