Nicki Minaj, Pink Friday Roman Reloaded (The Re-Up Island)
With Pink Friday Roman Reloaded The Re-Up, Nicki Minaj takes the trend for expanded album "re-promotions" to another level, her second album reissued accompanied by a DVD of video clips and an extra eight-track CD of new material, which is our primary concern here. Not that it adds much to the Minaj experience, being primarily further proclamations of her business acumen, verbal dexterity and sexual appetite. The best examples are "Freedom", where undulating synth and poignant chord-changes carry her assessment of her career "pinkprint", and "Hell Yeah", where vocalist Parker's evocation of club euphoria is punctuated by Minaj's account of "what it feels like to be winning".
