Nicki Minaj’s gay male alter ego Roman Zolanski, last seen in ‘Roman’s Revenge’ on Minaj’s Pink Friday, is back in her new single ‘Roman in Moscow’. After the success of ‘Super Bass’ and ‘Fly’, many people expected Nicki to follow the radio-friendly success as she searches for her first number one.
‘Roman in Moscow’ is exactly the opposite of that. With lyrics such as “Swallow balls, nuts too/Camel toe”, “Ain’t on my period but I got a new pad” and “Motherfuck you with a big dick/I’m a racist I’m a bigot”, it’s unlikely that ‘Roman in Moscow’ will be gracing our airwaves any time soon. Despite that, and the fact there “ain’t no motherfucking hook/ain’t no third motherfucking verse”, ‘Roman in Moscow’ is more than enjoyable, and it’s finally starting to feel like Nicki Minaj is living up to the hype that surrounds her.
Good: Perfect production: Nicki Minaj hasn’t sounded much better.
Bad: There are some moments which just seem like complete nonsense.
