Nicki Minaj's 'The Boys': Rapper Releases New Single (AUDIO)

Posted: Updated:

Nicki Minaj, that purveyor of sequel culture, is back with another sequel. Pink Friday Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up is a reissue of Minaj's 2012 album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded (which took its name from Minaj's 2012 album Pink Friday), and the rapper has released the first single from the new-ish compilation.

Titled "The Boys," the new track pairs Minaj with Cassie. Minaj had previously teased Cassie's appearance on "The Boys," stating she collaborated with a "real pretty" female singer for the new tune.

Minaj recently made a splash on Twitter when she rapped what some felt was a pro-Mitt Romney verse on Lil Wayne's new song. That was debunked as sarcasm, but the lyric did draw a comment from President Barack Obama. ("She likes to play different characters," Obama said of Minaj.)

There's nothing as controversial on "The Boys," but Minaj did spend Thursday afternoon retweeting praise for the single. Pink Friday Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up is out in November. Minaj has said the album will contain between five and eight new songs.
