New from Nicki Minaj - Roman In Moscow

My, my, my, she's pelican fly - but I've always thought Nicki Minaj had her wings clipped when she signed her record deal. Her early mix-tapes and guest spots were scene-stealing claps of thunder but, Superbass aside, the Pink Friday album was curiously weak.

But maybe I'm not the best judge of these things... According to Nicki's Twitter profile, she's a "Platinum selling recording artist, writer & actress. PINK FRIDAY boasts the most charted singles by any female rap album in Billboard history." Eat on that, haters.

Refreshingly, the follow-up to Pink Friday seems like it'll go heavy on the snarl and swagger. Nicki released the first track, Roman In Moscow, over the weekend and it literally collapses under the weight of its own attitude.

By the two-minute point, the Moment 4 Life hitmaker is just listing things she's not prepared to do: A hook, a third verse, refrain from swearing, "etc".

Roman In Moscow is available to purchase now and it sounds like this.
