After what seems like hundreds of collaborations, Rap’s latest sensation Nicki Minaj is set to release her first official release ‘Your Love’, a sexy, smooth R&B ballad which samples the classic Annie Lennox hit ‘No More I Love You’s.
I’ve seen quite a lot of uncertainty about this track online, but I’m just come right out and say I really like it. It’s certainly stands out from the rest of the Rap/Urban/R&B stuff out there at the moment, and Minaj’s unique vocals offer a refreshing change to the very male dominated rap scene.
What I love the most about this song is how it seems the vocals were written around the sample, thus allowing both layers to compliment each other, instead of merely using a catchy sample which doesn’t really fit in with the rest of the song for the sake of a few increased sales. I use T.I’s ‘Live Your Life’ as evidence for this theory.
It’s out to download RIGHT NOW and her debut album should be out soon!
