Listen to Nicki Minaj's 'Starships.'
Another day, another new Nicki Minaj record. In the midst of tearing up her Grammy performance Nicki's also found the time to debut her radio-ready new single, "Starships." Produced by RedOne (Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez) "Starships" is slated to appear on Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, due out April 3.
Perhaps one of the most radio-friendly, pop-laden singles we've heard from Nicki in a while, "Starships" kinda sounds like it could have also been a David Guetta or Flo Rida record with a rap hook thrown on it. Translation: "Starships" is the world's next big party anthem. Boom, done.

As if its booming track wasn't enough to make this record a guaranteed hit up in da club, Nicki's infectious hook permeates as she sings: "I'm on the floor, floor/ I love to dance/ So give me more, more, till I can't stand/ Get on the floor, floor/ Like it's your last chance.../ Starships were meant to fly/ Hands up and touch the sky/ Can't stop 'cause we’re so high." In a candid interview with Ryan Seacrest Nicki admits: "Starships is one of my absolute, absolute favorite records on Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. It makes people feel happy and that’s all I want. I want to start the year off with making people feel good.” Consider that done, gurl. I'm at least three notches higher on the "good" scale than I was before I listened.
