Nicki Minaj - "Super Freaky Girl" + Queen Radio: Volume 1

  1. I’m sure this will all go very smoothly.
     
  2. Mariah has never won a VMA, should she not be recognised for her videography just cause she's never won?

  3. Missy hadn't won a VMA since 2006 (for Visual Effects) and she still got the Vanguard in 2019. Christina and a handful of other artists are definitely overdue, but for several years it's been about getting people to tune in and usually goes to an artist who has something to launch. Missy is probably the one notable exception, and she got it because people – rightfully – demanded it. Nicki feels like a solid middle-ground between someone who is still commercially viable/can bring in viewers, but also has an eclectic and recognizable enough videography spanning pop and rap to make this justifiable.

    If they were just going off of achievement in video, there'd be many people in line ahead of her.
     
  4. More than anything the Vanguard is basically a tool they use to secure at least one marquee performer these days, especially considering the first round of performers they announced includes Panic At The Disco and Marshmello/Khalid.

    Speaking of Tricon, was it ever explained how/why Tricon came about instead of just giving Gaga the Vanguard that year?
     
  6. Probably because it’s the only way she’d attend. They had offered her the Vanguard award a few times before.

  9. Queen Radio now being on an obscure Amazon app is so weird ddd. Especially when she probably had one of the bigger ones on Apple Music’s radio program.
     
  10. The way this looks absolutely nothing like her..

  11. I still wonder why she left Apple in the first place but I'm guessing Amazon threw a ton of $ at her to help launch the app. They released merch and have been promoting it non-stop. It does seem like a good setup for her fans, she's been popping on randomly the last few weeks leading up to the official launch tonight and I think it's a lot more interactive. She did a little show after OVO last weekend.

  13. Dr Luke AND Aaron Josephs?

    She really doubled down on this one huh?
     
  14. The snippet made it seem more exciting than it actually is. It doesn’t really go anywhere. Cute, but probably won’t be revisiting much unless it has a killer visual.
     
  15. It’s bad.
     
  16. Nicki giving SlutPop The Re-Up Reloaded from Luke and Aaron.

  17. It’s kind of rare for an artist as big as Nicki to release something so dated? It sounds straight out of 2013.

  18. Why is "Super Freaky Girl" giving J. R. Rotem circa 2007?

    I can't at Nicki recycling bars from her "Boss Ass Bitch" remix.
