Young Money Music Video Blowout

A double dose of Drizzy videos went up on the interwebs yesterday starting off with the radio hit and title track "Take Care" with Rihanna. While "Take Care" looks pretty simple at first glance, it is more than you think. The "HYFR" video, on the other hand, is a completely different story being a little more ridiculous especially Weezy's outfit. Other than that, I say hell yeah hell yeah hell yeah, well you know the rest.

While that is it for Drizzy, there is Young Money's queen especially that her sophomore album came out last week...

I guess I can use this post to share some thoughts on Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded album. It is easy to hate this album because well it is Nicki Minaj and her gimmick is getting a little tiresome for some folks already, but this is easily a banger for the mainstream audience filled with radio hit after radio hit that we will hear for the next year. I'm surprised there is a video for "Beez in the Trap" as I expected none of her rap heavy stuff to get the single treatment as she is more known for her poppy stuff now. The "Starships" video should be coming out soon as her poppy stuff is more catchier than I thought. Then again, it is more clubby pop especially with "Pound the Alarm" and "Automatic." Another possible single from the album is her song with Chris Brown, but the rest of the cameo appearances are in the rap half of the album with Nas, Cam'ron, 2Chainz, and of course Weezy. As of now, this album is my early contender for mainstream album of the year as Nicki is going to have a big year with numerous singles, but we will see what other artists can match up.
