I’m loving Nicki Minaj at the moment. “Your Love” has been on repeat for the past few weeks and now her new joint with Will.I.Am is getting spinned. Check out “CHECK IT OUT” below, which samples The Buggles’ “Video Killed the Radio Star.” The track will be featured on her debut album “Pink Friday” which is set to drop on November 23rd.
I think it’s a good single/release choice as it’s radio-friendly and catchy. Familiarity always helps a song to do well because you’re already aware of certain aspects of the track – that’s why so many artists sample old or well-known tunes (Jason Derulo – Whatcha Say, Kanye West – Through The Wire…the list is endless).
