Mix auto-tune with a timely feature by Chris Brown and you’ll get Nicki Minaj’s new song, ‘Right by My Side’. The track is listed as cut #8 on Minaj’s new album, ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’, which will hit stores on April 3rd.
Shortly after ‘Roman Reloaded’ is released, Minaj will launch her European ‘Pink Friday’ tour. The first show is scheduled for June 8th and the venture will continue until August 18th when it ends in the UK.
Listen to Minaj and Brown’s ‘Right by My Side’ below:
‘Right by My Side’ does not shock, impress or excite in any way. In fact, the only thing this track confirms is that Minaj is truly just another Pop star on the hunt for a radio hit.
Where is the lyrical weight and musical depth that Minaj is quite capable of delivering? Couldn’t she find a space under her wig to place a reminder that she is a rapper and not the second coming of Katy Perry?
At this point, I just want to hear Minaj’s ‘Gun Shot’ collaboration with Beenie Man. The rest of ‘Roman Reloaded’ is hereby banned my iTunes.
