/ November 17, 2012

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.
