Bey-Z rises from the rubble unscathed. Amber Rose pulls a J-Lo with her almost-not-a-dress. Nicki pulls her dress together by seams. RiFF RaFF, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift play their positions clumsily and look really and truly not cool bruh. Check the pics and videos after the jump.

On “Low” Lil Bibby makes some audacious claims, Nicki puts her pelvis on something, and Juicy J sips. Young Thug croaks and howls into a void of a song. In other words, business as usual. The video is a little less than the sum of these parts somehow, but we can still get our dose of Minaj. Watch it after the jump.

Juicy J over a Dr. Luke special, made to throb a club into instant collapse. It’s like stripped down crunk with a drill kick. Nicki Minaj lavishes it. Bibby is ferocious, and spares no victims: “I’m Michael Jordan, you LeBron n*gga/In other words, you a fraud n*gga” might be one of the most shit-starting lyrics ever. H/t Craig Jenkins for that spotlight. Listen to a banger after the jump.

She of the “controversial” art work is here with the song behind the cheeky cover. We were moved to talk butt politics when it first appeared as a Nicki Instagram post. How is the track in comparison to the amazing duo of the cover? Fairly, it objectifies men in the way that Nicki gets objectified every day. Appropriate subversion noted. Listen after the jump.

Dang. All right. I woke up to this. It’s the cover art for Nicki’s new single “Anaconda.” To be clear, we’d never see this on Beyonce’s Instagram and it’s not because Bey has more respect for herself than Nicki does. The Young Money Queen is feeling that pressure to stay in her Starship. Explore the issue after the jump.

Hasn’t this genre come along way with the guy sweetly singing to the lady rapping on a track? That’s a milestone. August and his spaceship deluxe R&B fill music planets with Nicki’s rhythmic bars. His modified howling and her melodic songstress half-verse are a radio-wrapped special. That other half rap verse can be chopped right off and Nicki’s still there, sounding lovely and suited to this syrup. Check the track after the jump.

Off Cam’s First Of The Month Vol. 2, this is his joint with Nicki. You’d think with their senses of humor and penchant for pink, we might see more work from this duo. Although the video isn’t fancy, there’s bluster to go around, and the simplicity of the visuals give room for Cam and Nicki’s color. It’s also not a bad song, though we wish Fabolous had made it ten years earlier. Watch after the jump.

Usher and Nicki Minaj over this disco-era MJ track produced by Pharrell is a sugary dance number. It’s half as lewd as their first collab “Lil Freak” and about twice as potent. They achieve more without oversexing it and hint at some better musical chemistry overall. Listen after the jump.
