  • Lyrics
  • 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.
