Believe it or not, but here in the UK retailers are already gearing up for Christmas, and by the looks of it the music industry is doing exactly the same with its first Christmas and repackage/Deluxe Edition album announcements.
Jumping on the same bandwagon is Nicki Minaj. The US rapper/Hip Hop artist has released a brand new track, called ‘The Boys’ featuring R&B singer Cassie. The new track is featured on a repackaged edition of the singer’s latest album ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’. The new album entitled ‘Pink Friday Roman Reloaded: The Re-up’ is expected November 5 and will feature new tracks, of which a duet with fellow rapper Lil’Wayne.
As for ‘The Boys’ itself, Minaj continues to focus on ‘fun music’. Bringing a big fat beat with her, and a brilliant mix of rapping versus singing (in this case done by Cassie) it’s less poppier than previous singles but extremely exciting to see in the charts. And it leaves us intrigued to find out what the rest of the new tracks will look like.
‘The Boys’ ft Cassie, by Nicki Minaj is out now.
