New Song: Nicki Minaj, ‘Freedom’

Nicki Minaj reflects on her success in “Freedom.”

Nicki Minaj‘s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded — The Re-Up (try saying that three times fast) includes seven brand-new songs, and guess what: we’ve got one for you to check out right now! Don’t thank us — it’s our pleasure. We’ve already seen Nicki’s unicorn-laden (!!) “Va Va Voom” video, and now we’re officially obsessed with her latest single, “Freedom.”

Although “Freedom” is a bit more subdued than your average Nicki track, it still packs quite a lyrical punch as the professional eye-roller spits about her success and rightfully claims her spot atop the female rapper hierarchy: “My career’s been a pinkprint/ Man I’m birthing these artists and it’s starting to show/ Who I want to work with, nobody/ 99 percent of them is nobody.” In a lovely turn of events, Nicki also sings the hook on “Freedom,” making it a little more intimate than some of her other records. In sum, we dig! And also, we’re thinking this record might work as a potential theme song for her new reality series!
