The video of Minaj dancing to an unreleased song has over 1.5 million views and hundreds of comments from admirers. Some feel the 1980s-sounding tune signifies the rapper’s return to pop.
“Freaky Girl” reportedly samples Rick James’ 1981 song “Super Freak.” Minaj’s rendition sounds sexier and more assured. “Anaconda” rapper is known for his spicy lyrics.
James’ verse starts, “She’s fine/That girl’s alright with me.” She raps, “I can lick it/I can ride it while you slip and slide it” Then she brags. “Tricks,” she says. “You may hit, hold, and kiss it. When he leaves me alone, he tells me how much he misses me.
Twitter users applaud Minaj’s ingenuity and the song’s success. Nicki is well-versed in music and hip hop, says one insider. Rick James’ influence on hip hop isn’t surprising. HER ONLY. #NickiFreakyGirl.” Minaj tweets on what her fans say. She recently retweeted a tweet from a fan who remarked, “Freaky Girl is my fave song at home and in the car.” I’m addicted. @NickiFreakyGirl, help!”
Minaj is happy with the song’s Instagram performance. She posted a short clip when #NickiFreakyGirl trended at #1 and #2. The rapper hasn’t stated when the track will be released despite a successful preview. We’ll repeat the preview till then.
