Nicki Minaj hops off her “Starships” for the downbeat “Champion”, another cut off her forthcoming album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. The mellow tune, which features verses from Nas, Drake and Young Jeezy, has Harajuku Barbie keeping it simple and low-key. Almost too low-key for a song about triumph that openly declares, “This a celebration.” Check it out below.
Nicki Minaj feat. Nas, Drake & Young Jeezy – “Champion”
Despite the star power involved, “Champion” (produced by Da Internz) doesn’t stand much of a chance of being a single, being that it’s just too drab, especially compared to the more exciting (and schizophrenic) fair Nicki has released thus far. Then again, if her fans need a palate cleanser from her over-the-top hysterics, this is definitely it.
Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded is out April 3.
