  • Lyrics
  • This Rico Beats produced tune is the title track from Nicki Minaj's second studio album. The song was debuted on Funkmaster Flex's Hot 97 radio show on February 23, 2012 and released to radio the following day.
  • The brag heavy track finds Minaj firing shots at haters who have accused her of going pop. "I guess I went commercial, just shot a commercial/ When I flew to the set though, I ain't fly commercial," she spits. "I laugh at hopefuls, Nicki pop?/ Only thing that's pop is my endorsement opp." Minaj's timing is interesting as she released the track just ten days after her most poppy song to date, the album's first single, "Starships," was made available.
  • Minaj's Young Money boss Lil Wayne ends the song with a typically drug-induced verse about smoking blunts.
