Nicki Minaj's "Your Love" a Good Song to Hate

Categories: FemPop
This picture is only one of many reasons why it's impossible to take Nicki Minaj seriously

While some may insist Nicki Minaj is the most promising lady out there right now in the female rap game, it's sad that such a prolific artist ends up bashing her own gender so often. Instead of an empowering artist carrying the torch for lady wordsmiths, we're stuck with silliness concerning threesomes and violent threats.

Her second solo single, "Your Love," is just as big of a disappointment. The sleepy track, which isn't even original in that it samples Annie Lennox's "No More I Love You's," fails to say anything meaningful.

The chorus is a simple repeating of, "Your love, your love." Your love what? Yes, the track is technically a love song, but it's sad Minaj doesn't even use coherent grammar, opting to just sing a fragment over and over again. The shame!

So just what is it about this guy that Nicki loves so much? Well, "he the type to pop tags and be cockin' the brim." Because showing off where you shop and wearing your hat a certain way are really impressive.

She then goes on to babble about how she met him in past lives, when they were Adam and Eve and a geisha and a samurai. Here in present day, he "keep a do-rag". What a prince--someone she'd love to commit disastrous sins with and prostitute herself out for. He has a do-rag, after all.

It's not just that the lyrics to "Your Love" are completely asinine. The melody is so bare bones, it sounds lazy. Nicki needs to stop trying to be Lil' Kim and write something that's original and meaningful--that's what would make her more lovable, for sure.

sorry to disagree, but this may be the single worst song i have ever heard... ever. how someone is able to be auto-tuned and STILL sound nasal and flat is a truly spectacular display of horrible vocals. this song seems to have been created simply to be as grating and irritating as humanly possible. i fear for the future of music...


I have to agree with Luis2dope. Nicki Minaj is a refreshing new artist to the hip hop genre and her song "Your Love" is a wonderful remix to the original song; proven by the fact that it held the #1 rap song on the Billboard charts for weeks. I personally enjoy Nicki Minaj. And comparison to Lil' Kim? Psssh, no competition.


Annie Lennox's "No More I Love You's isnt the original, the original is by a group called The lover Speaks, Nicki's is the best of all 3. MINAJ go hard
