her upcoming “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up”album, set to release November 19. “Freedom” is classic Nicki, a bit of brag-rap mixed with a hook primed for in-the-club sing-a-longs.
The track is a career retrospective for the over-the-top performer. She raps, “They’ll never thank me for opening doors / But they ain’t even thank jesus when he died on the cross / Cause your spirit is ungrateful, b-tches is so hateful, I remain a staple / My career’s been the pink print/ When I retire tell ’em think pink / Pink friday is the imprint / And these b-tches basic, instinct.”
In the chorus she croons, “I feel free, I feel freedom why the mad / You should see them, burning up / Cause it’s crazy in here crazy in here crazy in here”
Minaj’s much-hyped appearance in the upcoming season of “American Idol” will debut Jan. 16. She also recently released a music video for another track on the album called “The Boys,” which features Cassie.
