    67. From trash to class, December 15, 2014

    This review is from: The Pinkprint [Deluxe Edition][Explicit] (Audio CD)
    (Former Nicki Minaj hater, hence the title) With hype from MTV VMAs, and previously released singles “Pills ‘n’ potions”, and especially “Anaconda”, as well as one of the best guest line-ups of the year (including Chris Brown, Drake, Ariana Grande and Beyonce), expectations for her new album were high, but Nicki Minaj has definitely delivered. Making a departure from the dance-pop-flavoured second album, the cartoonish rap queen presents on “The pinkprint” a harder, edgier sound, closer to her traditional rap-hip-hop beginnings, brightened with poppier melodies, and most surprising of all, actual singing. Her tongue can run faster than one can spell Iggy, but only a few songs on here can approach the velocity of previous material. With the album’s lyrics touching upon themes of family, insecurities and loss, among others, it is surely more fitting. She engages in her usual fast flow on a couple of fun and uptempo cuts, and it works in her favour (with the exception of the utterly skippable “Anaconda”).

    “Feeling myself” is among the most interesting upbeat tracks, but I am not going to spoil the fun by giving away the “fun” element of it, it has to be listened to! “Trini dem girls” is another one. Yet, for all the album’s fierceness, it keeps returning to heartache, mostly evidenced by the slower cuts (“I lied”, “Bed of lies”), particularly by the absolute standout, closing track “Grand piano”; an unexpected ballad that features piano (naturally) and, wait for it, a violin! Vulnerable and personal, showcasing immense growth vocally in contrast with the almost robotic delivery of the past, this is Nicki Minaj deeply connected to her own artistry, sharing a rare moment of intimacy with the audience. All in all, “The pinkprint” reveals a different, more balanced side to Nicki Minaj’s character, presenting some of the most superlative work of her career. Never thought the day I would speak so positively for her “Minajesty” would come, but here it is. Just like its minimalistic, elegant cover art, “The pinkprint” is bold and memorable.

    A Brilliant Crossover Album, December 15, 2014

    This review is from: The Pinkprint [Deluxe Edition][Explicit] (Audio CD)
    Nicki Minaj raises the bar on “The Pinkprint,” her long awaited follow up to “Pink Friday Roman Reloaded.” Gone are the blips and blats of electronica that filled out tracks like “Starships” on her last album. In their place are much more layered, textured songs with lyrics of more substance. This is a rare album which finds the songs scaled back and stripped down but still catchier; they are better songs with bigger hooks…and what’s more, the rap tracks hit harder than Minaj has before. As opposed to the songs being about bling and booty (there are a few exceptions of course), they are songs mostly about heartbreak. Minaj reaches new depths as an artist here, singing MUCH better than she ever has, and rapping with a passion and a purpose. “Bed of Lies” is a standout, featuring the melancholy vocals of the talented Skylar Grey. On “Trini Dem Girls,” she pays homage to her roots. “Pills and Potions” is just amazing, revealing a sincerity rarely displayed by a rapper…while singing.

    This album now solidifies Minaj as a multi-talented crossover artist who is at the top of her game. This is a major statement for her, and despite the occasional misstep, this album offers something for everyone while staying true to her roots. The passion, the hooks, the beats, and the verses are all here, and delivered as well as organized much better than at any time in her past.

    I’m surprised, December 16, 2014

    I’m not going to lie, I have never been a niki fan. As a matter of fact I actually hated her previous work. But I always give new albums a listen, from the first song I was interested, she was rapping about real life with a beautiful singing voice. I lied was the next song, it is an excellent slower track..from there on I listened to the whole album and there were only a few songs I didn’t like..she shows that she actually has lyrical skills along with a beautiful singing voice…very good album from, coming from someone who hated her previously..give it a listen, you might be surprised..Also check out KEVIN GATES new album, LUCA BRASI 2..it is also one of the best hip hop albums of the year in my opinion…
