Off the heels of ‘Super Freaky Girl’ debuting at the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot100 chart, Nicki drops the star-studded ‘QueenMix.’
‘Super Freaky Girl’, serves as the lead single for Minaj’s upcoming anthem. She has garnered over 50 #1s on worldwide iTunes charts, and #1 on Hot100, and it has already won awards mere weeks after it was released.
The reigning rap queen invited Maliibu Miitch, JT, BIA, Akbar V, Katie Got Bandz, and Roman to flex their pens for the remix. Each of these ladies brings something completely different to the table regarding their cadence, lyricism, and flows.
Did the ladies pass the vibe check with their bars?
The first lady to open the track is JT from the City Girls. She literally kicks the door open with her slick delivery that immediately highlights her Miami heritage. It was extremely surprising to see her being the intro to the track, but she completely owned the beat and delivered in a way that’s uniquely her.
The way she’s experimenting with flow switches truly shows her love for the craft and desire to be a rapper.
BIA is the second female to sashay on the song with her velvety delivery. Bia’s tone on the track was like a calming yet confident addition. Her cadence within her music embodies effortless bad bitch energy. She knows who she is, and she found her pocket within the beat that allowed her lyrics to flow.
She is NOT to be taken lightly because of her chill tone, Bia like all the ladies featured, is a lyricist.
Katie Got Bandz is one of the two unexpected additions to the track. She is truly the wildcard in this lineup, her delivery is wild and very animated. Like Nicki, I wasn’t aware of how talented she is as a rapper, but she made me a fan. She repped Chicago in all the best ways with her rap.
Akbar V is another female that wasn’t expected to be featured on this track. But the Queen of Atlanta absolutely demolished this beat. Her bars were precise, her metaphors did not miss, and her delivery was flawless. She embodies a controlled flame on this track and is completely different than the Akbar we’ve grown to know on social media.
Maliibu Miitch’s tone is so sexy and reminiscent of Foxy Brown. It was only a matter of time when she and Nicki would be on the same track. The way she switched her flows really highlights her skill as an emcee. Maliibu is an underappreciated gem in the rap world, and it is beautiful that she had this moment.
She brought a whole different flavor of New York on the track that Nicki fed off in the outro.
Nicki did say that 6 people would be featured on the track, but what she didn’t mention was that Roman was the final addition. Roman came back in true form, keeping everyone on their toes in the outro section. The way Nicki transitioned from Maliibu Miitch’s verse into hers should be studied in music theory courses. Her verse like everyone else on this track is a “rappers delight.”
The #QueenMix of Super Freaky Girl deserves to be discussed and studied in a rap Masterclass.
The day Nicki Minaj announced this as an official remix, everyone joined in a witch-hunt on social media to figure out who would be tapped in for it. Almost instantly, we knew JT would be the female to represent Miami, and either Bia or Coi Leray would represent Boston.
CupcakKe was another female who fans thought would be featured to represent Chicago. But we were pleasantly treated to Katie Got Bandz’ addition.
“These bitches hungry, guess I’m just greedier
These bitches ugly, my bitches prettier…”
Listening to this track is like walking in a candy store for female rappers. Each girl brought a different vibe, approach, and mastery of lyricism. There’s literally something for everyone and that truly makes it a fun listen. Just like the original track, this has a lot of replay value and should be added to everyone’s streaming playlists.
This track has the makings to be a monumental moment in hip-hop for women and truly highlights their talent. It earns a 5/5 star rating!
