New Music: Nicki Minaj - Starships

I’m just going to get right to it. This song is awful.

“Starships” is the new single from Nicki’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded (due out April 3rd), and it’s quite simply one of the worst Nicki Minaj releases I’ve ever heard. The Red One produced track is a huge ball of generic mess that goes from being a cheap imitation of  Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream”, to an even cheaper imitation of Pink’s “Raise Your Glass”, and then climaxes at the David Guetta-esque hook, complete with cheap dub/electro influenced breakdown.

The song is all over the place to the point where it becomes a nothing more than caricature of pop radio. The single artwork is cute, though.
