Well, the beat will definitely make ears pop like an airplane flight. Along with the track, fans can expect the music video which will be dropping later within the week. (Hip Hop Wired)
Her new record also features singer Sean Garrett on the hook.
"Hotter than in Pakistan," Nicki raps, "Click, click, Young Nick the atomic bomb/Yeah, see it then you like your tongue/Wet that, it taste good, get you some/Whip it, got ten bad, bad, we sh-sh-shut it down/The club's got glitches/Dig it? And while you do that, GT's pulling up -- Pop a bottle just to get my head right, tell the doctor go and get my meds, right/Monster, you know it wouldn't be proper if we didn't return with a big rocket launcher..." ("Massive Attack")
Minaj recently talked about recruiting model Amber Rose for the shoot.
"I brought my BFF Amber Rose out here," Nicki said in an interview. "This is a massive attack. We shot the helicopter scene. Obviously, I had to have a hot-pink Lamborghini. We're having fun in the car, and we see a freakin' helicopter chase us. So we get on the walkie-talkie, like, 'Mayday! Mayday!' It's really fashion and beauty shots, and we're acting like we're doing something important...You can expect it to be almost like the soundtrack to a movie. It's gonna take you somewhere that ... it's kinda gonna tell a story. I didn't just want to make an album that had a club record, just the obvious. I wanted to paint a very graphic picture. And every record that I'm doing for the album, I can see the stage show, I can see the video. It's just gonna be big. You can expect it to be big." (MTV)
