Sirens blare and the bass is turned up on the new, leaked Nicki Minaj and Ciara single, “I’m Legit.” The track is one of the new songs off Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up, the re-release of Minaj’s sophomore album Roman Reloaded due Monday (Nov. 19) “I’m the shit with no makeup, don’t have to curl my hair up/ All this booty here — mine, I’m a dollar worth a dime,” sings Ciara on the in-your-face chorus. “Real bosses standup, ladies throw your hands up and say ‘I know I’m cute. I know I’m fly.’ You ask me why? Cuz I’m legit.” The song is a departure from the other new The Re-Up tracks, like the more symphonic “Freedom” and the Lil Wayne-feature “High School.” “I’m Legit” caters to Minaj’s female fans thanks to it’s booty-embracing, girl power lyrics. The Young Money femcee raps about getting a shout-out from Obama and ultimately being really famous. Listen to “I’m Legit” below.
