On April 3, Nicki Minaj will drop Pink Friday:Roman Reloaded, the highly anticipated follow-up to her 2010 breakthrough Pink Friday. April 3 is actually a Tuesday, but try not to overthink it.
The Queens-based woman born Onika Maraj won acclaim for being a one-lady theater company, capable of shifting between hard street raps, cartoonishly raunchy boasts and club-pop confections that seek to give Rihanna a run for her Billboard money.
Of course, not everyone thinks these personalities (or chart aspirations) fit well together on the same album (plenty of lyrical purists don't care for the pop stuff), so it might be in your best interests to try before you buy.
HipHop-n-more has a collection of minute snippets from each Reloaded song that should give you an idea of what you're in for.
We say it's a mixed bag worth sorting through, but head on over and see what you think. If nothing else, it's probably worth checking out just for "Champion," which features assists from Drake, Nas and Young Jeezy.
