In her most recent song, “Super Freaky Girl” which was released on Friday, Nicki Minaj displays her freaky side. The song, which appropriately samples Rick James’ 1981 hit “Super Freak,” debuted in the midst of TikTok’s soaring popularity and a related dance challenge developed by user @lorddroman.
I can ride it as you’re sliding around, I can perform all of the small maneuvers, and I can keep the d— up inside of it. Over the instantly recognized riff from the vintage sample, Minaj raps in the racy first verse, “You can smack it, you can grip it, you can go down and kiss it / And every time he leave me ‘lone, he always tell me he miss it.”
The rapper’s first single since “We Go Up” with Fivio Foreign in March is “Super Freaky Girl.” Prior to it, this year also saw the releases of “Blick Blick” with Coi Leray, “Bussin” with Lil Baby, and “Do We Have A Problem?” with Lil Baby.

At the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards, which will be broadcast live from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, Minaj will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award and make her first appearance on the program since 2018. After Missy Elliott (2015), Kanye West (2015), and LL Cool J (1997), Minaj is the fourth rapper to earn the award (2019).
The Beastie Boys, an alternative band that began as a rap trio, were recognized in 1998. This year, Minaj is also a VMA candidate for best hip-hop for her collaboration with Lil Baby on “Do We Have a Problem.”
