Entertainment Monday: Nicki Minaj (1 September 2014)

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. 


  1. Never listened to Nicki Minaj songs... that I know of. Though just know my "catchy" tune is all about Taylor Swift's latest. ;)

    1. Oh yeah I love Taylor's new song and I look forward to her latest album.

  2. I really liked listening to Nicki Minaj. I enjoyed both songs but Super Bass was my favorite. Her version of her song was my favorite out of hers vs. the covers. I liked the Japanese cover second best, then the ukulele cover (in general I love the ukulele) then the other two covers were pretty much tied. I enjoyed all of them though. =)
