RedOne Talks Nicki Minaj Collaboration: 'Amazing, Incredible'
Nicki Minaj's bouncy "Starships" single dropped on Tuesday, but it's only the first of the rapper's collaborations with producer RedOne.
"It's four songs we did," the in-demand producer told Billboard.com during a rare studio break during Grammy Week, with potentially the full quartet to appear on Minaj's upcoming "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded."
"The tracks that I've worked with on Nicki Minaj are amazing, incredible," he said. "To be honest, I am so happy and excited for what people are going to think."
The electronic-influenced track landed in iTunes' top 10 during its opening day, prompting a flurry of enthusiastic tweets from Minaj's "Barbz": "omg I'm actually crying," @antwone516 tweeted at the rapper. "This is the best valentines day present ever."
"She's an incredible artist, very inspiring," RedOne added. "A character, a beautiful person, it's all in one."
Minaj's "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded" is due April 3.
