Nicki's not exactly known for being humble, but she gives credit where credit is due in her now-decade old hit. She acknowledges that she couldn't have reached this "moment 4 life" milestone" without her dedicated fans, the powers that be, and of course, her boy toy Drake, who is also featured on this song. Please tell me I'm not the only one who's still shipping them since they shared a magical Disney kiss in this music video.
Boy better know how lucky he is that Nicki is giving him the time of day. This is the kind of energy I need every time I decide to grace a guy with my attention.
Nicki's Monster verse is arguably her most iconic verse of all time, so it was challenging to pick just one lyric from this gem. She's a queen, she knows it, and he better recognize. I don't know about you guys, but I'll be using this quote for all my future Instagram captions as I conquer the world one step at a time.
Okay, I lied, but I couldn't pick just one from Monster. I used this lyric as an Instagram caption for this year's Nicki Minaj costume, because it was the most Nicki-esque lyric I've heard. This look is what she's known for, and it describes the deep impact her style has had on us all. Thanks to Nicki, I'm known for giving my coworkers whiplash everyday with my questionable style because I'm always staying true to myself.
Knowing Anaconda by heart is one of my best party tricks. After all, it's the ultimate body positivity anthem. We love how this lyric puts other women's awesome butts right in the spotlight, especially when it was originally used to put down big butts in Sir Mix-A-Lot's original bop Baby Got Back.
Leave it to Nicki to come up with the cure to my anxiety about aging. Whenever I'm feeling like life is just passing me by, I just repeat this mantra to myself. This song alone is the skincare you need. After listening to this song on repeat, my skin is as soft as a baby's bottom.
Also leave it to Nicki to name-drop Ellen Degeneres just because she can. In case you missed it in Monster, Nicki is still the queen of rap, and no one can take that title away from her.
A line so clever that I plan to use it on every loser who does me wrong in the future. Thanks, Nicki.
Asserting her dominance as per usual in this one. Only true Nicki fans know that Nicki's real name is Onika. All hail Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty.
This lyric holds true for every single song she's featured on. There are so many songs out there that would objectively suck without Nicki's presence (including Motorsport), and she knows it. Nicki simply slaps, and that's a fact.
Just give us the cheat code, Nicki. It's the least you could do for a mega-fan. I've been trying to decipher it for over a decade now.
She's just stating the obvious here. Be integral when it comes to what you do, just like Nicki has become integral to the rap scene.
So eloquent in this banger. We're all just baddies out here looking for the zaddies of our dreams. Don't let your dreams be dreams, says Nicki.
When he doesn't treat you right, the punishment is swift. Do like Nicki and cut that toxic dick energy out of your life today.
In her latest, Nicki proves that you could have your cake and eat it too. Fellow Barbz - this is a sign to never let anything get in your way. Manifest Nicki Minaj lyrics on a daily basis, and everything else will simply fall into place.
