Oh Nicki, all is forgiven. After we had to scrub our eyeballs following your truly bizarre (and not in a good way) performance of “Roman Holiday” on Sunday night’s Grammys, you’ve now given us the perfect anecdote: a club-ready smash that is also destined for the top of the pop charts. It's good enough to even get the Catholic Church off your back after the other night... well maybe not.
“Starships” is an instantly catchy tune that combines rapping, singing, pop, electro-clash and only enough auto-tuning to still sound like it was recorded by a human. It’s put together as if constructed in Dr. Frankenstein’s lab, but, by God, it works. It’s as if LMFAO, Taio Cruz, and Minaj had a baby and this is what popped out.
