I Think Nicki Minaj Jumped Barney And Stole His Lyrics


Rewind to your Sesame Street days. I’m going to name four songs and you’re going to try and figure out which doesn’t belong:

1. My Chick Bad by Ludacris ft. Nicki Minaj
2. Lil Freak by Usher ft. Nicki Minaj
3. Your Love by Nicki Minaj
4. Roger That by Young Money ft. Nicki Minaj
“One of these things is not like the others…” Some of you might be thinking, hmm I don’t know, it’s all the same shit. The rest of you may have noticed that only one of these songs is actually by Nicki Minaj. For 15 weeks now “Your Love” has been on the Billboard Top Rap Songs chart. F I F T E E N W E E E K S. It peaked at the number 1 spot. N U M B E R O N E. Think about how many rap songs you know. Now consider the fact that 15 songs make this chart per week. Now think specifically about the song in question here. I’ll do the math for you. Of ALLLLLLLLLL the songs released and played in the last fifteen weeks, “Your Love” has been amongst the top fifteen every week. Furthermore, during some of these weeks, of ALLLLL the songs released and played, “Your Love” was THE NUMBER ONE SONG on the Rap Chart. I have a huge problem with this. I’m dead serious when I say I think Nicki Minaj may have jumped Barney and stole his lyrics in the making of this song. Let me preface my next thoughts with the fact that I actually really like the other three songs I listed and I really do like when Nicki Minaj is featured on tracks because she offers a neat contrast to the other voices and lyricists on the tracks. However, when it’s all up to her it seems to result in an epic fail. Unless she’s targeting children at snack time, I suppose. Let me post a sample of the lyrics below so we can analyze the lack of depth together:
“Your Love – Nicki Minaj”
Shawty Imma only tell you dis once, <——– [she goes on to tell us “dis” several more times]
you da illest
(bah ba dah dah oh) <——- [seriously? bah ba dah dah oh?]
And for your lovin’ Imma Die Hard like Bruce Willis
(bah ba dah dah oh) <——- [killin’ it! more creative by the second]
You got spark, you, you got spunk
You, you got something all the girls want <—— [other than decent lyrics?]
You’re like a candy store
And I’m a toddler <——- [only thing that makes sense in the entire song]
You got me wantin’ more and mo mo more of
Your love, your love(yeah)
Your love, your love(yeah)
Your love, your love(yeah) <———– [getting bored]
Your love, your love(yeah)
Your love, your love(yeah) <———– [cursing about how lame this song is]
Your love, your love(yeah) <———– [yelling at people singing along]
Your love, your love(yeah) <———– [shrieking as I inquire to anyone in earshot how this made any chart at all]
Your love, your love(yeah) <———– [considering driving my car off the Tobin Bridge]
I don’t really feel like I need to say more on this subject. I think that segment probably does the trick. And I’m not ignorant to the fact that there are a lot of pretty depthless, pointless songs out there, I’m just saying this one takes the cake.
