Riff: David Guetta feat. Nicki Minaj – “Turn Me On”

Jan 29, 2013

D-D-D-D-Don’t let me die young/I just want you to father my young…I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I/I-I-I-I-I-I know you can save me

from Turn Me On lyrics by David Guetta feat. Nicki Minaj

Supposedly about addiction, this run-of-the-mill house jam actually powers a tired double entendre – turn me on sexually, or activate me like a robot. Minaj’s uncharacteristic singing would be refreshing if it weren’t unnecessarily bathed in auto-tune or followed by a cringe-worthy, stuttered rap.
