Nicki Minaj’s ‘Marilyn Monroe’ Track Leaks to the Web
Despite Nicki Minaj releasing her controversial video ‘Stupid H–,’ her faithful Barbz are still hankering for new music from Minaj’s upcoming LP ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.’ The song ‘Marilyn Monroe’ leaked on the Internet on Sunday (Feb. 5) and we aren’t sure if this is new or just a leftover track from her last album.
Named after the Hollywood starlet Marilyn Monroe, it seems like the late actress’ troubled life was the inspiration for the song’s lyrics. Minaj doesn’t rap on the piano-driven track, instead, she sings about battling her personal insecurities.
“I can be selfish, yet so impatient sometimes I feel like Marilyn Monroe / I’m insecure, yeah, I make mistakes sometimes, feel like I’m at the end of the road,” she croons. Minaj later sings: “Take me or leave me / I’ll never be perfect / Believe me I’m worth it / So take me or leave me.” Hmm? Is she trying to us something?
‘Marilyn Monroe’ sounds a little outdated and incomplete, but it’s not a bad song. We think the Barbz will like hearing the softer side of Minaj next to the venomous rapper heard on ‘Stupid H–.’ If this song ever does get finished, it has all the markings of becoming a pop hit.
Nicki Minaj’s ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ will arrive in stores on April 3.
