Aside from a wily remix to the chart-topping “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd Nicki Minaj kept a low-key profile releasing music this year. Today (Dec. 7) Minaj dropped new track “Ain’t Gone Do It” and it breathes a life of its own.

Her unapologetic cockiness and fem bravado is remisnicent of Nicki Lewinski’s mixtape era. “ESPN photoshootin’ with Kobe, you Photoshop b*tches be needin’ Adobe,” Minaj spits on the track. The upbeat pop-centric production mixed with Minaj’s vocal shifts of her secondary personalities is totally Pink Friday-esque.

An unidentifiable female also bodies the second verse, perfectly complimenting Nicki’s high pitched cartoon voice in the hook. But who is this unidentifiable MC blessing our ears? It’s a mystery for now.
