Keeping her reign over pop music alive, Nicki Minaj premiered her brand new single “Starships” from her forthcoming album Pink Friday: Roman Reloadedtoday (February 14) on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show.
The “Marilyn Monroe” singer explained that her new album is going to be simply brilliant. “I’ve never had this much fun recording music in my life. My first album I was very guarded. I felt like I was making music to please everyone else. I had to be politically correct, but this album I am just creating music, there’s such a big difference.
Nicki also gushed about working with RedOne on “Starships.” “There was so much love surrounding the making of the song, because RedOne is just so sweet to work with. He just sent me that one day and he said, ‘Hey, I got something for you!’ I was like ‘You got to be kidding me, right?’ I went to the studio and started writing…scratch that…I didn’t even write the first verse! That was just me mumbling and just saying the first thing that came to my head, and we recorded it, because I just felt…like let’s go to the beach…let’s go get away…It was just so good. It feels good!”
