Only is the follow-up single to the highly infectious and popular Anaconda from Nicki Minaj, who’s having a great year.

She ditches the pop and fun and goes for heavy bass and queen-of-rap swag to address her haters directly.

It seems a bit pedestrian for the reigning queen of rap and one of the best rappers out there.

Drizzy and Weezy tell us they aren’t sleeping with Nicki, but wouldn’t miss the opportunity to do so if they could.


Lil Wayne hasn’t really had a stand-out verse since 6 foot 7 foot years ago, and his contribution to Only is a yawn.

Chris Brown, who can actually sing, insists on shouting on an average hook.

What a disappointing offering from these immensely talented people. Fix it Beyoncé.

Nicki Minaj's Only video is disappointing.

To say that I am tired of commercial hip-hop’s messaging is an understatement.

The new video by Nicki Minaj was just too much to bear – another addition to an already saturated market of boring, materialistic, pseudo-rap.

On top of it, the vid uses Nazi iconography to establish how dominating Nicki is in the rap world – to the point of being a dictator. No, Nicki, stay in your lane please.

I respect Ms Minaj for being brazenly sex-positive in a world that tells woman their sexuality is something to be ashamed of. But with lyrics like “I don’t fuck with them chickens unless they last name is Cutlet.

Let it soak in, like seasoning” Nicki needs to perhaps shut her mouth about what a good rapper she is. Because really, those lines are ridiculous.
