Riff: Nicki Minaj – “Va Va Voom”

Dec 19, 2012

We could shoot a movie, could bang, like Rambo/Boom boom pow, this thing so bingo

from Va Va Voom lyrics by Nicki Minaj

Another example of how everyone in hip-hop appears to be entirely at ease abandoning their roots in favor of trashy Europop, “Va Va Voom” is a sub-par “Super Bass” which sees Minaj reject any notion of sisterhood by inviting a man inside her ‘play pen’ despite knowing he has a wife. Classy.
