When Nicki Minaj breaks up with a guy, what does she do?
Certainly, she doesn’t cry over a tub of ice cream (have you seen her bikini in the “High School” video?) or fall asleep at 8 p.m. watching a Kate Hudson movie. Maybe she’ll go out to Club Liv with the Young Money crew or tweet her Barbz for advice. But Minaj’s remix of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Tonight I’m Getting Over You” gives us a different story… about finding a little peace.
“Tonight I’m getting ov-er, meditate and do my yog-er,” the rapper spits on her 30-second takeover of the song. And although it’s not something we’d expect from the lush-living, hip-hop princess, we don’t put it past her to do a little self-reflection. After a breakup, she also raps that she’d take her Volv-er to the club with her Céline bag sitting pretty on her should-er.
“Nicki killed the verse, and it’s great,” Jepsen’s manager Scooter Braun told MTV News last week, after listening to it on his phone. “When Carly Rae and Nicki get together, they make songs about getting over guys.”
And Scooter has no doubt the track will kill it on the airwaves. “Whenever girls do songs about getting over men, they seem to do really well,” he said.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard Nick team up with someone from Braun’s Schoolboy records. Nicki gave Beliebers a bit of YM when she guested on Justin Bieber’s “Beauty and a Beat” track in the fall with the same flow. “Buns out, wien-er, but I gotta keep an eye out for Selen-er.” Sound familiar?
