Nicki Minaj Sings Sweetly On ‘Pills N Potions': Listen Here

Nicki calls out haters, in the nicest way possible.

There were a number of things we were expecting from “Pills N Potions,” the first single from Nicki Minaj’s upcoming third album, The Pink Print.

We wanted “Monster”-level bars, an incredible cameo and a hook that would haunt us in our sleep. Well, the Dr. Luke-produced song co-written by Ester Dean kind of gives us all those things, yet not in the way you’d expect.

That Voice
After opening with a spare, haunting drum beat, Minaj comes in singing in a feathery, near-whisper about “Pills and potions/We’re overdosin’/I’m angry but I still love you.” The vocals are among the prettiest (and poppiest) we’ve heard from Nicki to date, especially when they get blown up with an echo effect in the second pass, where Nicki adds, “I still love, I still love, I still lu-uh-uhhhv.”
