Considering we haven't heard Nicki Minaj solo since her 2015 electropop hit "The Night Is Still Young," we have to take what we can get when it comes to her new music. This year, she's already graced Yo Gotti's "Down in the DM" and Ariana Grande's "Side to Side" with her presence, and has now added DJ Mustard's "Don't Hurt Me" to that list.
Featuring the producer's signature rubberized plinky keyboard, the beat isn't one we haven't heard before—just take a listen to Kid Ink's "Show Me," Ty Dolla $ign's "Paranoid," or Jeremih's "Don't Tell 'Em." But we do get to hear Nicki the way we like her: half-erotic ("I just wanna f—k, and get my cake ate/ You wanna spend some time, that's a Rollie/ I'ma ride his d—k, like it's stolen") and half-arrogant ("Bitches still my sons, get your sonogram on/ Just the Nick' of time, I did the cover of TIME/ Gettin' a million dollars just to stand there and rhyme").
Jeremih, who just announced his joint album with PARTYNEXTDOOR, guests too.
"Don't Hurt Me" is available exclusively on TIDAL for the first seven days. Hear it here.
