Nicki Minaj’s ‘Young Forever’ Leaks
A new Nicki Minaj track, ‘Young Forever,’ was leaked to the Internet this week. The track, produced by Dr. Luke, is slated to appear on her upcoming ‘Roman Reloaded’ album.The track is a far cry from the ‘Roman Holiday’ and ‘Stupid H–’ Minaj has put out as of late. The song is a midtempo ode to lost love. “Don’t say goodbye / Look in my eyes so I always will be remember / Frozen in time / Always be mine / Baby boy, you’ll be young forever,” the Harajuku Barbie sings. The song deals with Minaj moving on from the one who got away. In the track, her raps are less rapid fire and more melodic. The tune is more akin to her recent ‘Marilyn Monroe‘ leak than anything we’ve heard from Minaj before.
‘Young Forever’ is not the only latest new Minaj track to hit this week. She premiered the uptempo, danceable ‘Starships‘ on Ryan Seacrest’s show earlier today (Feb. 14). The songs themselves are good, but they’re also good deterrents. The media has blown up following Minaj’s bizarre Grammy performance this weekend, which simultaneously baffled and offended many.
‘Young Forever’ shows a softer side of Minaj that we haven’t heard since her breakout solo hit, ‘Your Love.’ Take a listen below!
