Young Money's Nicki Minaj has released "Massive Attack," the first official single off her upcoming untitled debut album.

In preparation for her upcoming debut album, which has yet to be titled, Minaj drops the first single from the project, "Massive Attack" featuring Sean Garrett. 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)
The song features producer Sean Garrett on the hook as Minaj lays down her vocals.
"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")
In addition to "Massive," Garret will also link with Minaj for their "Get It All" music video.
"I'm in my 2010 Rambo, so hard I had to let Nic pink out the Lambo/ Ya'll already know we got the ammo, massive attack," sings Sean "The Pen" Garrett on Nicki Minaj's first single, "Massive Attack," which he co-produced with Alex Da Kid. The brawny Garrett gets his Rambo on in the militaristic clip, shot against a jungle backdrop and in the desert of Lancaster, Calif. Next Friday, the singer-songwriter will head to Miami to film a video for his Barbie-assisted single "Get It All" with director Gil Green. (Rap-Up)
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)
