It’s about that time to Re-Up, folks. On November 19th Nicki Minaj‘s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded The Re-Up hits stores with eight new tracks. One disc will include eight new tracks featuring singles “Va Va Voom,” “The Boys” and “Freedom.” Adding to her Barbz’ suspense she released the snippets to the remaining unreleased songs. And like her first two albums Nicki can’t be confined to one box.
“Hell Yeah’s” production sounds like grunge rock mixed with the typical hip-hop bass. Nicki flosses about being a boss. “High School” may be this album’s “Right By My Side” since she’s singing on the chorus about a potential love interest. “I Endorse These Strippers” sounds similar to “Beez In The Trap,” which will inevitably make it a club banger. Better yet, a strip club favorite. It’s only right that in a song titled “I’m Legit” Nicki raps, “I did a freestyle then I/got a shoutout from Obama.” From the choir’s singing chorus on “Up In Flames” you don’t expect the thumping beat change resulting in Nicki’s more hardcore flow.
Artists re-releasing albums with a handful of new songs is becoming quite trendy. Lana Del Rey is re-releasing Born To Die: The Paradise Edition later this month too. Why not release a new project? Is the re-release because of poor sales the first go-round? Now that we’ve put the questions out there, let us know your thoughts in the comment section. And does The Re-Up make you want to purchase or re-purchase the album? What say you?
