Nicki Minaj - 'Marilyn Monroe'

Swirling and self-aware

Nicki Minaj - 'Marilyn Monroe'

Album Info

  • Label: Universal
The tragic, babydoll Marilyn Monroe metaphor might feel hackneyed, but coming out of Nicki’s mouth it’s all sorts of shocking, and perhaps that’s the point. Swirling, self-aware and bolstered with early-noughties Dallas Austin production, Nicki might have taken on yet another persona, but here, she’s exposing herself.
