Minaj teams up with her "Super Bass" co-writer Ester Dean on this dance track about a bad-boy lover. "I didn't know that bad could look so good, you are the type of bad that feels so good," she sings.
The song was co-produced by British knob-twiddler Alex Da Kid (Eminem and Rihanna's "Love The Way You Lie") and Moroccan/Swedish producer and frequent Lady Gaga collaborator RedOne, who was also the man behind the desk on Minaj's hit single, "Starships."
Minaj had two features on Madonna's MDNA set and this track's title is an amalgam of "I'm a Sinner" and "Beautiful Killer" from the deluxe version of that album.
"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" was written by Nick Lowe in 1974. The original version with his group Brinsley Schwarz was kind of somber, but Elvis Costello made it a classic with his 1978 uptempo take.
