SINGLE REVIEW: Nicki Minaj – Megatron

Nicki Minaj really loves to use villainous names as titles for her singles as she strikes back again with the fierce ‘Megatron’. After taking a three month social media break the queen of rap is back with another new song. 

Following the release of her fourth studio album ‘Queen’ she has decided to drop a new single that hears her referencing the arch nemesis of Optimus Prime from the Transformers series. Stepping slightly away from the classic hip-hop direction her last record headed towards she sideways heads back into the gimmicky lane. With a bunch of one-liners, she’s trying to be that quotable queen again. From “I fuck him like I miss him, he just came out of prison” to “It’s better when I’m drinking. I tune up when I’m drinking”, she shows that she’s, uhhh, classy? 

You can’t really take this song seriously and I don’t think she really expects you to either. It’s just a fun hype track to keep her on your mind. It’s nothing ground breaking neither is it anything to get too excited about. It’s just a fun and playful track to hold you over whilst she plans out her next move.
