Songfacts®:

  • This Caribbean-tinged banger is the most EDM-focused song Minaj has recorded to date. Naturally, it bears no resemblance at all to Devo's 1980 hit single of the same title.
  • Minaj's short rap verse, where she boasts about her high SAT score, is a sample of her feature on Cassie's 2010 unreleased song "F--k U Silly."
