As soon as we laid our, er, ears on Nicki Minaj's new single "Starships" from her sophomore album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded (due out April 3rd), we instantly thought: the future is now! Under the direction of one of pop's biggest producers RedOne, The song encompasses everything about modern music, such as the catchy rhythm guitar (reminiscent of "Moves Like Jagger"), pulsating beats, and lyrics about having an awesome time on the dance floor.
Starships were meant to fly
Hands up and touch the sky
Can't stop 'cause we're so high
Let's do this one more time
We're not gonna lie: we can't stop listening to this! We totally called it if this song becomes a #1 hit.
"Starships" is now available on iTunes, and we seriously can't believe Nicki's not releasing Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded today (she once promised to drop it on Valentine's Day but the date got pushed back). We want more, you crazy girl you!
