After popping bubbles with the bombastic “Where Dem Girls At”, Nicki Minaj and David Guetta have teamed up for another song off the electro producer’s Nothing But The Beat (August 29). On “Turn Me On”, Minaj puts aside her slick rhymes and shows off her vocals as she takes a shot at singing the song’s euphoric chorus. Hear a snippet below.

“I am so proud of what [Nicki] did on this record because we know her for those crazy raps but the other record that we have, she is singing like—oh man,” Guetta recently told Billboard about Nicki’s vocal chops on this song. “The world is gonna be shocked.”
Guetta, dude, slapping Auto-Tune on a rapper’s singing voice doesn’t turn her into Christina Aguilera. We’d say we’re mildly surprised at best.
What do you think of Barbie belting out instead of rapping? Or are you reserving judgment til you hear the full song?
