Trey Songz is readying his September release Passion, Pain & Pleasure, and he’s done the unthinkable: the R&B singer has scored Nicki Minaj as the featured artist on one of his tracks. How bizarre and unprecedented! Jump below to listen Harajuku Barbie’s latest featured verse on Trey Songz’s club-rousing tune “Bottoms Up.”[wpaudio url="http://idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Trey_Songz-Bottoms_Up_Feat_Nicki_Minaj.mp3" text="Trey Songz feat. Nicki Minaj - Bottoms Up" dl="0"]
Trey’s bass-thumping beats in this club track are solid but nothing spectacular, at least until Nicki steps up to the mic—Minaj asks for a bunch of booze during her verse, switching from her baby coo to her goofy, sassy growl from line to line.
And for some reason, Minaj finds room to quote the brilliant wordsmith of our time, Anna Nicole Smith: “Do you like my booooody?” If anyone (besides Ms. Smith, of course) could pull off a crazy line like that without music fans lifting an eyebrow, it’s Nicki.
Are you joyfully raising your glass for “Bottoms Up”? And does Nicki Minaj steal every song she’s featured on?
