9 May 2012 - Nicki Minaj - Starships

Finally, a Nicki Minaj song, and not just a song where she's a guest star.

This song is her current hit as I am writing this - currently at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 (just behind this song) - and highlights why I like Ms. Minaj so much - she's crafted a song that defies typical hip hop convention while still embracing hip hop sensibilities.  It's not a typical pop song, either, and yet, it works as a  pop song.  It's danceable, but not a typical club hit.

It's just different, and still a lot of fun.

Despite this song being my 7-year-old's 2nd favorite song, this version is NOT safe for minors.  Too much bad language.
