Rapper continues to show off her singing voice

Rapper continues to show off her singing voice 

On her big hit Super Bass, Nicki Minaj was happy to leave the singing to Ester Dean. Since singing on David Guetta's Turn Me On, it appears the rapper shows no sign of turning back. 

Starships once again showcases Nicki's singing voice with the rapping taking a backseat. 

As second album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded was originally meant to be released yesterday, Nicki treated fans for waiting by releasing the new track to tide them over. Nicki also premiered the song Roman Holiday at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards.

Starships takes Nicki in a clubbier - and less controversial - direction than recent release Stupid H*e. Sounding a little Black Eyed Peas, it's a fun track but may divide fans of Nicki Minaj's earlier, grittier material.
