Sex In the Lounge

Album: Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Minaj is joined by Young Money cohort Lil Wayne and R&B singer-songwriter Bobby V(alentino) on this sex ballad. In fact, Nicki sounds like a guest on her own song, as after completing her verse a third of the way through we don't hear from her again.
  • The lyrics are basically a collection of sex talk. Even such on the face of it innocent lines as Minaj's, "Though he packin' that muscle/ I'm addicted to brain," are actually her talking dirty, "Brain" being a slang term for oral sex.
