Music Review: Your Love - Nicki Minaj

Speed: 95 bpm

The DJ’s Take: Nicki Minaj resembles a black Snooki, only a little better looking and more talented. Honestly, when I heard the first few bars of this song, I could’ve sworn it was Justin Bieber singing. Definitely a chick song, and already in the Billboard Top 30, with strong potential to go up based on the saccharine factor. Interesting note you won’t care about - the beat samples Annie Lennox’ (of Eurythmics) No More I Love Yous. And yes, the fact I could figure that out within 15 seconds means I’ve listened to too much soft rock radio in my day.

More relevantly, I thought of 5 different popular tracks you can mix with this song if you turn on the key adjust. Pretty sure that’s a new record for this blog. Haven’t actually tried this out yet, but my ear tells me it should work. So if you don’t feel like using your brain during a set, that’s about 20-23 minutes on cruise control before you have to start thinking again.
