Music's 10 Sexiest Women 2012
9. Nicki Minaj (1.85% of the vote)

Nicki Minaj is firing both barrels on her new single.

"Roman Reloaded," the title track of her April-due sophomore album, "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded," made its debut on Funk Master Flex's Hot 97 radio show on Thursday night.

Unlike the RedOne-produced dance-pop candy of "Starships" or the Grammy-premiered exorcism drama of "Roman Holiday," "Roman Reloaded" is a more traditionalist hip-hop offering, featuring hard-hitting production and guest verses from Lil Wayne.

The brag-heavy track ranges from the absurd -- "Bite me/Apple sign" -- to the violent, with Minaj dropping a reference to the Columbine High shootings amid the gunshot-style percussion.

The track will hit digital retailers on Friday, with album slated for April 3.
