Nicki Minaj releases new single ‘Super Freaky Girl’

Self-proclaimed queen of rap, Nicki Minaj has just released a new single, and it is steamy, to say the least. Entitled ‘Super Freaky Girl’, this latest release contains a sample of the 1981 hit ‘Super Freak’ by Rick James and comes as a follow-up to Minaj’s April single ‘We Go Up’ featuring Brooklyn rapper Fivio Foreign.

‘Super Freaky Girl’ is Minaj’s first solo single since her 2019 hit ‘Megatron’. However, this doesn’t mean Minaj has been absent. In fact, it has been quite the opposite, with Minaj releasing a lot of collaborations such as ‘Do We Have A Problem?’ and ‘Bussin’ with Lil Baby, ‘Blick Blick’ with Coi Leray, and the previously mentioned ‘We Go Up’ with Fivio Foreign.

Since getting married and becoming a mother, Minaj (real name Onika Maraj) has seemingly taken steps to slowly but surely come out of the limelight, allowing the new generation of female rappers such as Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion step to the forefront. 

However, Minaj has not completely dropped off the radar, and this latest single is a reminder of that. Yet to release an official video for the single, Minaj has released an animated lyric video that, sexually, insinuates a lot. 

The animation uses fruit and vegetables, which are often related to specific body parts, to convey the sexual message of the song. The video includes animations of bananas and aubergines, both of which are common symbols of male genitalia. It includes peaches, a fruit used to symbolise a female’s backside, and melons, a symbol and slang term for a female’s breasts. 

The song is highly explicit but has an infectious melody making it very catchy. The Rick James sample is one that has been used before as MC Hammer utilised it for his hit ‘U Can’t Touch This’, so the bass riff and overall melody of this latest single from Minaj will be highly familiar for a lot of people. Some may even consider it a rip-off. However, it still remains catchy, and now Nicki Minaj fans (commonly known as Barbz) are just waiting for the official video. Still, in the meantime, you can watch the official lyric video below.
