Nicki Minaj - 'Pound The Alarm'

Nicki turns even an unworthy track bad-ass

 Even when lumbered with what should be a stinker, young Onika’s still got enough bad-ass charisma to wring some brilliance out of it. In anyone else’s hands, ‘Pound The Alarm’ is naught but a trance-trodden charmless ringtone. Factor in Minaj hollering “Bottle, sip, bottle, guzzle/I’m a bad bitch, no muzzle” though, and you’ll feel like you’d flog your kidneys for a night on the razz with her.
