The Barbz are continuing to feast. Legendary Trinidadian rapper and singer Nicki Minaj is bringing a new edition of her momentous return album, Pink Friday 2. It had been a little over five years since the 41-year-old phenom’s last project Queen. It is safe to say that Nicki is making up for lost time by bringing extra material, but we are not complaining. Today marks the release of the Pink Friday 2 (Gag City PLUTO Edition).
It follows the Gag City Deluxe which added a 50 Cent version of “Beep Beep” and “Love Me Enough” featuring Monica and Keyshia Cole. PLUTO is a reference to Future’s nickname and he marks his second appearance with “Press Play.” It is the lone addition to this latest expanded edition and it is a straight banger. Also making a return to Nicki’s project is producer ATL Jacob.
He continues to make his mark with big-time nod after big-time nod. Jacob brings sped-up piano keys to his familiar glitchy and bassy trap beats. The piano has a similar sound to Pooh Shiesty’s “Back in Blood.” Future brings a repetitive but catchy hook and Nicki has some witty one-liners as per usual.
