Hi there!

I've done a few similar countdowns to this in the Movies forum with Star Wars & Harry Potter characters and I know the likes of troublepink and Ultra have done countdowns in the Artist Forums before so I thought I'd make a list of my favourite Nicki Minaj songs and count them down here along with some of you who will hopefully be reading! heart.gif

This will be starting tomorrow and I'll leave a list in the opening post of the countdown so far every time I update the thread.

Here are where the songs included come from:
Pink Friday - 11
Roman Reloaded - 8
The Re-Up - 3
Pinkprint - 10
Non-album singles - 2
Features - 26


Thanks for reading cheer.gif

I had about 80 in my first draft and I had to cut it down. I wanted to do a top 50 at first but I couldn't get rid of 10 more laugh.gif

Thanks Andrew!! heart.gif

I was so taken aback by how beautiful 'Grand Piano' is. That song was such a highlight on her Pinkprint tour wub.gif

There's still plenty of Pink Friday stuff to come (her best album for me!), Did It On Em is one of the weakest on therefore me.

Shocked at you not hearing #61 ohmy.gif It felt really huge at the time online but I'm not sure it really crossed over to the UK sad.gif

Thanks for commenting, Jupiter!

Grand Piano is GORGEOUS! I bet that was such a moment live *-* I really wanted to go to her last tour but I couldn't get anyone to go and I didn't want to take my mum as I think she might have been a bit shocked at some of the language laugh.gif cry.gif

Thanks Jade!

I used to love it back in the day but it's not the most melodic so I'm not too bothered about it missing out. There's much better stuff on Pink Friday heart.gif

Thanks Theo!!

60. Give Me All Your Luvin'
(Madonna feat. Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.)
2012 - MDNA

Favourite lyrics:
"In the nick of time I could say a sicker rhyme
Cause its time for change like a nickel and a dime"




This is one that has definitely slid down the list in recent years. I wasn't much of a fan of Madonna back then (I am now so don't worry heehee.gif) but I was already a huge fan of Nicki so I mainly listened to this for her and I was OBSESSED with it when it first came out. I remember playing the video on repeat and learning her verse in about three plays of the song. It still remains one of my favourite guest raps of hers but it's far too short for my liking and the Madonna hook itself is now a bit irritating on my ears so I've had to put it down here even though I still love it enough to put it on the list. Another thing that made me love this so much was the Superbowl performance too, seeing all three of them come out and perform it live was such a moment *-*

59. Favorite
(feat. Jeremih)
2014 - The Pinkprint

Favourite lyrics:
"I just wanna be somebody, that can add to
Your wife, be a friend, be a teacher and a fan too
I just wanna listen
When you leave I say, "Damn, I f***ing miss him."




This was one of my immediate favourite (pun intended !!) tracks from The Pinkprint when I first heard the album but it has gone down a bit in my rankings since, mainly due to me not going back to it much. I remember wanting it to be a single but I think it's probably a good thing she went for the likes of The Night is Still Young and Truffle Butter because both were big successes for her (although, #spoileralert, neither of those are in my top 60. Oops...) and this does just work as an above average album track. Nicki has some great verses on this and I love how smooth Jeremih's chorus is, they work really well together on this so it's a shame their later collab with DJ Mustard as well isn't half as good cry.gif

58. No Frauds
(feat. Drake & Lil Wayne)
2017 - Non-album single

Favourite lyrics:
"I am the generous queen! Ask Ms. Ellen"

""Back to Back"? Me and Drizzy laughed at that"




One of the more recent tracks on my countdown is this Remy Ma diss track from earlier in the year. With more time to settle, I do think this could climb in my rankings in the future but it wasn't the most instant for me and I still feel like it grows on me every time I play it. It has some wicked word play and harsh take-downs which are some of the things that make me love Nicki so much which made it my favourite of the three singles she released (when are we getting something to follow those up!?!?) in early 2017. Drake and Lil Wayne both offer some good verses and it's nice to hear them all on a track together again even though they've done better collaborations in the past. I do hope this makes the album, even if it is just as a bonus track, because it is a banger and I'd like the album to be a bit more urban/hip-hop leaning as I think that's the sound she sounds most at home with.

Literally the only reason I remember that Madonna song is for inspiring 'L, V, U, Medoner'.

Well, and for trying to be hip with an MIA feature about five years too late.

That is probably the most memorable line heehee.gif But my favourite parts are definitely the two guest raps!! wub.gif

"G.A.Y." or whatever it's abbreviated to is a terrible song but Nicki's rap is truly stunning - hence my slightly generous rating in the rate thread.

"No Frauds" was a grower, it's not the best collaboration between those three artists but I like it for what it is and the video is great biggrin.gif

57. No Flex Zone (Remix)
(Rae Sremmurd feat. Nicki Minaj & Pusha T)
2014 - SremmLife

Favourite lyrics:
"They could never reach Young Nic's magnitude
Even if they had a longitude, latitude"




I was a fan of this prior to the remix anyway because the chorus is really catchy but the added verse from Nicki obviously made me love it even more. This was the first time I really discovered Rae Sremmurd and I loved just how catchy this was, the chorus was stuck in my head for days. But nowadays, I don't go back to this one often. I far prefer the other Nicki/Rae collab "Throw Sum Mo" and even their other singles like "No Type" and "Black Beatles" are tracks I revisit more than this.

56. Monster
(Kanye West feat. Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Bon Iver and Nicki Minaj)
2010 - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

Favourite lyrics:
"Pull up in the monster
Automobile gangster
With a bad bitch that came from Sri Lanka
Yeah I'm in that Tonka, colour of Willy Wonka
You could be the King but watch the Queen conquer
OK first things first I'll eat your brains
Then I'mma start rocking gold teeth and fangs
'Cause that's what a motherf***ing monster do
Hairdresser from Milan, that's the monster do
Monster Giuseppe heel that's the monster shoe
Young Money is the roster and a monster crew
And I'm all up all up all up in the bank with the funny face
And if I'm fake I ain't notice 'cause my money ain't
Let me get this straight wait I'm the rookie
But my features and my shows ten times your pay?
50k for a verse, no album out!
Yeah my money's so tall that my Barbie's gotta climb it
Hotter than a middle eastern climate
Find it Tony Matterhorn dutty wine it
While it, Nicki on them titties when I sign it
Have these niggas so one-track minded
But really really I don't give a F-U-C-K
Forget Barbie f*** Nicki 'cause she's fake
She on a diet but her pockets eating cheese cake
And I'll say Bride of Chucky is child's play
Just killed another career it's a mild day
Besides 'Ye they can't stand besides me
I think me, you and Am should ménage Friday
Pink wig, thick ass, give em whiplash
I think big get cash make em blink fast
Now look at what you just saw, this is what you live for
Ah, I'm a motherf***ing monster!"


Those of you who know this know that my selection for favourite lyrics is the only choice really. This is probably Nicki's best ever verse on any song, her flow is fantastic and the lyrics are a lot of fun. This is one of those verses that is just impossible to resist rapping along with every time I put it on and it really is just a killer verse. The reason this is so low is because the rest of the song is a bit rubbish aside from her. I wouldn't go back to this at all if that verse didn't feature in it and seeing as the track is ~6 minutes long, it does become a bit of a slog to listen to for me. Nicki managed to get it this high with just her verse alone but there are much more enjoyable whole songs still to come in my countdown in my opinion ohmy.gif

55. Black Barbies
Nicki Minaj
2016 - Non-album single

Favourite lyrics:
"Who the f*** is gon' protect her?
If I really gotta check her
Peter Piper picked a pepper
And my cake is triple decker"




Black Barbies was first released on Soundcloud as Nicki's take on "Black Beatles" by Rae Sremmurd. It was eventually mixed properly and given an official release on iTunes/Spotify etc. Rightfully, the original got all of the attention because it is a proper bop and a half but this is definitely my favourite version of the two. The raps are all very catchy and she sounds great on the beat, I heard a version with both Rae Sremmurd's & Nicki's songs mixed together and it sounded really good so I think this is a case of a song that just works with anyone singing it music.gif It was a personal chart #1 for me late last year but I haven't gone back to it much even though I do enjoy it a lot so I can't put it any higher unfortunately.
