From Massive Attack and 6 other releases

According to the Massive Attack Songfacts, this is the first solo single from Young Money MC Nicki Minaj. The song features Sean Garrett, who wrote and co-produced the track along with Alex Da Kid. Sean Garrett is a songwriter and producer who has had a hand in many hit songs, including Chris Brown’s “Run It!” and Usher’s “Yeah.” Minaj said to MTV News: “Shout-out to Sean Garrett. I’ve always loved his style. He really kinda had a great idea of what I wanted to do. I wanted to be theatrical, but I am very serious about what I do. He was able to mesh that together and have a really fun but direct record, if that makes sense.”

The song’s music video was shot on March 16 2010 in the deserts of Lancaster, California with director Hype Williams. The clip features Sean Garrett with cameo appearances by Minaj’s label mate Drake, Cash Money co-founder Bryan “Baby” Williams and model Amber Rose. She told MTV News: “I brought my BFF Amber Rose out here. This is a massive attack. We shot the helicopter scene. Obviously, I had to have a hot-pink Lamborghini. We’re having fun in the car, and we see a freakin’ helicopter chase us. So we get on the walkie-talkie, like, ‘Mayday! Mayday!’ It’s really fashion and beauty shots, and we’re acting like we’re doing something important. I kinda always like to do things in an unexpected fashion,” she added. “I didn’t want to shoot the typical new-artist vision. Thank God I have a wonderful label that stands behind me and my vision. I met Hype in a freakin’ airport. I didn’t recognize him without his dreads.
