This week’s number nine song on the iTunes top ten is “Bottoms Up” by Trey Songz featuring Nicki Minaj. Trey Songz continues to put out hit after hit and really knows how to get people dancing. This song is just a fun song where Trey Songz sings about partying and dancing in the club while poppin bottles. Of course, this can almost go without saying, Trey Songz shouts out to all the girls and how they can put their “bottoms up.” As corny as that sounds, it really has become a hit all throughout the nation.
“Bottoms up, bottoms up, pocket full of green
Girl, you know I love the way you shake it in them jeans
Bottoms up, bottoms up, throw ya hands up
Bottoms up, bottoms up, bottoms up”
Trey Songz may not have the best lyrics in the world but honestly people nowadays just like to hear catchy songs that they can dance to. And let me tell you, Trey Songz really knows how to do that. He added a feature on this track, Nicki Minaj, who absolutely kills her verse in this song. Nicki Minaj is a new up and coming woman rapper that goes hard in every song she is in so this is a nice touch to the song. Also, I believe Trey Songz asked her to be in this song because this song is basically about putting your “bottoms up” and Nicki Minaj is known to have a very, very big…bottom, lets say. To her credit, she is a good rapper, do not get me wrong but I think Trey Songz had a little more reason to put her on this track besides her rapping skills. However, Nicki Minaj sticks to the theme of the song and raps all about alcohol and partying in the club.
“Yo, could I get that ‘Tron?
Could I get that Remmy?
Could I get that Coke?
Could I get that Henny?
Could I get that margarita on the rock rock rocks?
Could I get that salt all around that rim rim rim rim?”
As you can see, Nicki Minaj raps with an attitude, showing that she is not some girl that you can just push around. She is the modern day Lil Kim. And not to say Lil Kim is washed up but she has not come out with anything in the recent years so it is safe to say Nicki Minaj took the female rapper crown. Not that it really matters but it is pretty interesting to see Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj go at it and fight through their music. If you ever get a chance you should for sure check out the Lil Kim diss song to Nicki Minaj, it definitely is something to hear.
