– “Nicki Minaj is one more influential superstar that picked up futuristic trend, it means that futuristic movement become overwhelming!” – Mark Trendsetter Holiday
She really is very influential right now. Her debut effort, “Pink Friday,” which is on target to begin with more than 400,000. It could mark the best sales week for a female hip-hop artist since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991. VIA BILLBOARD

Will.I.Am teaming up with Nicki Minaj is a perfect collab in my opinion – they’re both equally creative and unique, and it could be said that Nicki’s ‘Barbie’ image is a perfect fit with this funky electro-pop track. Sampling The Buggles vocals “oh oh” and the synth chords and keyboard riff from “Video Killed the Radio Star” contributes to the bubbly track creating a cheerful melody. Lyrically the track is uncomplicated and not serious, and seems to be purely for fun and entertainment with random lyrics like “I Can’t Believe It, This So Amazing……I Can’t Believe It, This Beat Is Banging…”.
The duo is simply brushing off all their haters. With the Japanese and futuristic theme, and eccentric outfits some would think they’re just laughing in their faces as they’re not taking the haters, or even themselves seriously – they don’t mind looking wacky, or acting silly as despite this they’re still making money and dominating the music scene! This funky party track is totally draped in auto-tune but the robotic vocals works well with the theme of the video, which is full of fun and cheese, and total originality, which Will and Nicki clearly deliver effectively well.
