This stuttering track finds Minaj taking shots at her rival Lil Kim ("All these bitches my sons/ I'mma get 'em a nanny"), whilst paying tribute to Jay-Z. Jay likes to call himself, 'Hova,' a play on the word Jehovah as he considers himself the "God" of rap.
Minaj's mention of "Orlando All-Star" is a reference to when she opened up the 61st annual NBA All-Star Game at Orlando's Amway Center and performed a medley of four of her hits.
Minaj told NME: "That's got so many meanings. It's the 'HOV lane,' which is the fast lane on the highway, and 'Hov' is Jay-Z and it talks about him being a male mogul who's done so much. That's what I wanted to do."
David Bowie's "Space Oddity" tells the story of an astronaut who cuts off communication and floats into space. The BBC used it extensively in their coverage of the 1969 moon landing - an odd choice considering the lyrics.
Bruce Springsteen wrote "Blinded By The Light," which was a #1 hit for Manfred Mann's Earth Band. The "Madman Drummers" line is a reference to Springsteen's first E-Street drummer, Vinnie "Mad dog" Lopez.
"Bittersweet Symphony" by The Verve samples an obscure orchestral arrangement of the 1965 Rolling Stones song "The Last Time." The Verve had to sign away most of the royalties before they could release the song.
