Nicki Minaj songs with Kanye, Rihanna hit the web

Ahead of the release of her highly anticipated album ‘Pink Friday’, Nicki Minaj’s Young Money Entertainment has decided to treat potential buyers of the album by debuting three new tracks.

All three songs feature star-studded collaborations, including ‘Moment 4 Life’ with Drake, ‘Fly’ featuring Rihanna, and ‘Blazin’’ featuring Kanye West.

Minaj had previously spoken of the tracks, but it’s only now that the public can hear the official versions, Of the Drake duet, she said: "[The song] is about 2 kids that grew up on the same block. They shared their dreams of making it as rappers. They laughed together, they cried together. One day they realize that their dreams have come to fruition. Though they know all things come to an end, they celebrate."

About the RiRi collaboration, Minaj gushed: "This song is a female empowerment song. But then again, it's not specific to just women. It speaks about flying, soaring high in the face of every single solitary adversity that comes your way."

As for Kanye’s contribution: "That record is a dope, dope, dope record where Kanye shows off as always. It's one of those for my dudes to ride to, not really crazy and animated, but just like one of them ride outs when you feel good and you just got the top down and you just want to zone out."

Nicki Minaj's debut album, 'Pink Friday' is set for a November 22 release.
