As promised, Nicki Minaj comes through with the first official single from her third studio album The Pinkprint, “Pills N Potions.” On Monday we received the cover art and a few words about the record from Nicki, she called it “uplifting” and “soulful.” Indeed, it’s a very different direction than “ChiRaq“, more pop-driven and definitely radio friendly, with Nicki singing about bad habits (pills and potions) as she reflects on love lost. Even on her early mixtapes, I haven’t cared for her singing voice. Just…leave it to Drizzy.

What do you think of it? It was produced by Dr. Luke and co-written by Ester Dean (Drop It Low, Girl).

 The Pinkprint is scheduled to drop later this year.
