HEAR IT: Rihanna and Nicki Minaj’s Hot Duet
Duo pair up for female empowerment anthem "Raining Men."
Nicki Minaj has her own hugely anticipated album, Pink Friday, slated for a November 22 release, but she’s lending some support to Rihanna on the new track “Raining Men,” from the Barbadian pop star’s upcoming Loud, out November 16. Hear it below.
The duo aren’t covering The Weather Girls’ disco classic “It’s Raining Men,” but rather a female empowerment anthem of their own. Over buzzing synths, siren sounds, and a stutter-step beat, Rihanna puts a dude’s ego in check. “Set your standards lower boy, you’re aiming to high,” she sings.
But Minaj brings the track to the next level, spitting rapid-fire boasts about the size of her TV and her production company – while insulting a guy who thinks he’s all that. “I couldn’t even find it with microscope,” she raps. Ouch!
