“I’ll be over here, you’ll be over there / I’ma shed a tear but I really don’t care.”
A new song by American Music Award winning artist Nicki Minaj has just leaked, in a surprisingly bubblegum pop styled rendition falling somewhere between Rihanna’s “You Da One” and Nicki’s, “Right Thru Me.”

The song comes out at an interesting time in the singer’s career, showing the two tightropes Nicki walks between rapper and pop star. The two personas have recently become apparent after Nicki’s collaboration “Turn Me On” with David Guetta, which featured the rapper singing, unexpectedly broke Billboard’s Top 10 Pop category. The song’s success came amid the release of Nicki’s new album “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded,” a return to the artists’s harder rap style, as evidenced by tracks such as “Stupid Hoe” and “Roman in Moscow.”
