The music bug traveled up Nicki Minaj’s family tree, or perhaps the public just didn’t know about the rap superstar’s mother, Carol Maraj, also had industry aspirations.

Today, listeners get a sneak preview of the song via a 30 second snippet. First and foremost, prepare your ears for a pop-influenced production that’s far from the soulful sounds of Sunday morning. Maraj used autotune to assist her vocals.
