Nicki Minaj Wants Fans to Pick Her Next ‘Roman Reloaded’ Singles
Hey Barbz! Nicki Minaj is in a dilemma. The Young Money rapstress can’t decide on what her next singles should be from her second album ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.’ On Thursday (May 24), the Harajuku Barbie unveiled on her official website three different polls with various songs from ‘Roman Reloaded.’
The first poll consists of her pop ballads ‘Marilyn Monroe,’ ‘Fire Burns,’ ‘Young Forever’ and ‘Gun Shot.’ The second round of choices are of Minaj’s street-certified bangers ‘Champion,’ ‘HOV Lane’ and ‘I Am Your Leader.’ Finally, the last poll features her electro-pop dance anthems ‘Pound the Alarm,’ ‘Whip It’ and ‘Va Va Voom.’
All three polls feature Minaj’s best tracks, so picking one of each will be tough. So far, ‘Marilyn Monroe,’ ‘Champion’ and ‘Va Va Voom’ are the song leaders in the race.
We have to give props to Minaj’s for using this ingenious tactic to pick out her songs. Instead of waiting for her record label to decide which single to release, she gave the power to her Barbz and Kenz. Bravo!
Meanwhile, Minaj is prepping for her upcoming Pink Friday summer tour. The 15-city trek kicks off July 16 in Chicago and wraps up Aug. 12 in Vancouver.
According to Minaj’s creative director and choreographer Laurieann Gibson, the show is going to be phenomenal. “I love [when] I heard ‘Roman Reloaded.’ I loved her delivery. I love the way she flows,” she said. “So the Pink Friday Tour is really good and it’s kind of like a glimpse back to what a real rap show is. It’s intimate but big at the same time.”
Get ready Barbz and Kenz, it’s going to be a ‘Pink’ summer!
