I confess, I only know about five of Nicki Minaj’s songs. I don’t really follow music but I listen to new songs on YouTube when they come up. My favourite Nicki Minaj song is Super Bass because of the catchy lyrics and quirky and cute video clip. I have so many favourite covers of the song too.
I recently found a Japanese version of Super Bass by Cream. Cream are a Japanese duo who wrote a lot of songs for JPop artists but are now branching out to do their own music. They have translated a few other western songs as well such as Taylor Swift’s ‘We are never getting back together’ and Ariana Grande’s ‘ The Way’.
I also like a cover sung by Youtuber uuuuuuuukewithme whose ukulele version of Super Bass is sweet and gentle makes Super Bass sound like a breezy song. (However, she does include the swear words into the song)
Another cover that I like is from band Karmin. It’s really simple with just a piano accompaniment.
Finally, the last cover I want to feature is by Tyler Ward & Crew (Alex G & Eppic) which is laid back and they cleaned up the lyrics.
Another song Nicki Minaj song that I am crazy about is Pills and Potions. I love it because Nicki is a bit more toned down in her costuming and the focus is on the emotion of the song.
