You know, Nicki Minaj is kinda vaudeville. She looks like she'd be right at home doing burlesque. No real other reason to wear a corset in 2010. And so this beat, concentrated at the high end of the piano, is daintily appropriate for her. Songwriter Sean Garrett, maybe finding his solo artist footing after "Break Up," carries the track, but it's hard to be anywhere near as entertaining as Nicki. She really sounds like she's from Queens here. Well, she is, but you know. Basically what we're saying this song is kind of like being in the studio audience when they record The Nanny.
