Nicki Minaj takes on rap rival Cardi B on her new Dancehall track "Megatron". The single is Nicki's first release of 2019, since she took time off to plot her career comeback.

The 36-year-old Trinidadian-born rapper, whose real name is Onika Tanya Maraj, was dethroned by newcomer Cardi B, best known for her 2017 summer anthem "Bodak Yellow".

In the video, Nicki puts the moves on her boyfriend, registered sex offender Kenneth Petty. There are numerous scenes of the couple grinding in a hot tub, as she raps about his criminal past.

She also touches on rumors that she nearly entered rehab for a drinking problem.

"Shots, shots, shots, I'm drinkin' / It's better when I'm drinkin' / I tune up when I'm drinkin'"

"Megatron" was co-written by Minaj, Brittany "Chi" Coney, Denisia "Blu Jones" Andrews, Haldane Wayne Browne, and Andrew "Pop" Wansel.

  • Gloria

    Not wasting my time by even entertaining the foolishness. See y’all on the next post.

  • deidre martin

    harpo! who dat woman!!!!!!

  • The_Blaque_Widow

    So it took five whole individuals to create this trash. She really irks me because I was rooting for her. It’s like she doesn’t even try. If you’re gonna name something Megatron it betta be MEGA worth it. I envisioned a video game theme with some real bars. Like why is there autotune in this mess??? I’m so done with her.

  • Brown & Proud

    She took a classic and ruined it with her annoying autotuned voice. Wack.

  • bb1812

    Nicki disgusts me. Wish she'd go away & take her creepy bf & fans with her.

  • WhoKnew

    I see Sandra "Renee Marrrrcus Raphael Saadiq" Rose startN sumFIN earlTea on a Friday mornT...guh...stop ???

    lolololololololololoOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOHAHAHAHA - I had to copy this from LuVn_liFe cuz it was fucking hilarious and EXACTLY what I noticed, funny, LOL

  • Sassie


  • Brown & Proud
  • imright

    Nicki needs to move back to NY and get back on her shiit or stop putting out music. im tired of hearing about her puzzy???

  • NewNew

    She looks pretty. A bit bottom heavy but pretty nonetheless. I wish the guy was less of a presence in the video but that's her choice. I like the beat but it's a classic reggae song so yeah. 2 Roses is definitely a fair assessment.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Best female rapper ever is still MC Lyte, in my opinion. None of these new chicks really come close. Nicki, Cardi B and some of these others might have more commercial success, but in terms of bars, none of them can hold a candle to her.

  • Tinytoon

    So basically, its Megatron and his sidekick Starscream. Got it.

  • Dowoop

    As short as these songs are it takes 5 ppl to write it?

  • tintin

    love it.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    I will be cleaning and working out to this
    I wish this godforsaken swimsuit as an outfit trend would pass but i do love the long dress from when shes grinding crouched up in the beginning. 3.5 petals for me

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Same ole same ole Pledge allegiance, to the thot, of the Untied Sluts of thot-ism
    And to the republic, for which I twerk, one pole under Gorden
    Indivisible, with liberty and dollars thrown for all

  • Wreckognize Game

    Real question. What does Megatron mean in regards to this song? I thought it was gonna be a raw song when she put that bratata clip out. I like the music- that's it.

  • Coy little wink

    Nah son

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Im ready for her mama Ms. Carol to drop her album.

  • luVn_liFe…

    Nicki has gained so much weight

  • Renee26

    I like the beat...

  • jeniefrumdabloc™



    I like her look in the video...You rarely see a thick woman with flattering camera shots. Much better video than Ganja Burn and Chun li.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I like the music, reminds of me of Rihanna’s music, that Caribbean feel!

    The video might turn some off, or the lyrics, but I can see this as one of the summer songs!

    Nothing she can do to topple Cardi, the “machine” is working for her to continue to succeed, but Nicki can keep up her brand, celebrity, and other opportunities (touring, TV/film/, investments)!

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    I didn't like it. Trash

  • WhoKnew

    "A bit bottom heavy"

    I would look a bit bottom heavy too if I had an 18 wheeler tractor trailer back up to my ass and dump a bunch of gelatin, cotton balls, glue, fat from my back and big toe, fat from my aunt's fat ass (the portion she don't want no mo) and inject it into my ass with an elephant blow gun.

    In the video, Nicki puts the moves on her boyfriend, registered sex offender Kenneth Petty. ***snickers***

  • DeJeri

    She should've never gotten the implants. She would be pleasingly thick but the weight gain over the enhancements makes her look like an over stuffed turkey. She's still beautiful though.

  • DeJeri

    I wish autotune would die. Ruins her voice.

  • Sushi

    Log out, you are in timeout, go to the corner, and put your nose to the wall. love it...

  • MsSapphire9800

    Well I am going to be good today...the last time I made a comment on a Nicki post it got I am keeping my mouth shut today...I am working until 7 pm need some laughs.

  • Love Luv

  • PetiteButterScotch

    Looks like she’s trying to be like a certain female rapper and her husband. It’s already being done n it looks forced

  • MzKeriBabee

  • NewNew

    I was trying to be nice. Don't want to offend any bottom heavy Roses in the garden today. If I said she looked trussed up like a Thanksgiving turkey some folks might feel funny about it . . .

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

  • SpiceGirl

    Good one!!!

  • Kayke

    3.5 roses for me!.... This should get her the summer ...but I’m bias af being an island girl and all.
    She looks good.

  • SpiceGirl

    IMHO...If Freda Gatz aka Bre-Z from Empire (the one that rapped with Baby Lyon) was REAL about her tv craft....She would BODY all these ladies of today rap.

  • stav

    Nothing like Paper thin, Lyte as a Rock , etc.

    Cardi getting all these bloggers paid so they have to tred lightly! I aint mad at it tho!!

  • Brown & Proud

    Hahaha! That gif is dope

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Personally I like this song I had to listen to it a good 3 times to get into it tho. The video is just ok. She does looks great tho. I don't care who she dates cuz it aint my business. I think this song is for the summer but I feel like she's got something else up her sleeve as far as Megatron is concerned. Cuz this cant be it. It's so funny to me that she really makes some of yall mad LOLOL!! Like she owe's you child support or something.

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Yuck she looks like a bleached beach whale

  • Not a Housewife & Neither RU

    "She also touches on rumors that she nearly entered rehab for a drinking problem"
    sigh....yall please go to rap genius and look up the lyrics for yourself, nicki didn't touch on no rehab rumors

  • Carrington

    Sandra Mae - Cardi B was just indicted in that club fight. That broad she was fighting is in a wonderful situation at this point because she can pretty much ask for whatever she wants to prevent testifying and, possibly, have the case dismissed - or lessen the charges without her cooperation.
    When hoodrating pays off.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed


  • WutizstillHERE!

    Is it my eyes are is Nicki running up the same bad surgery road as Lil Kim?

    Ta'Rhonda who plays Porsha has skills too.

  • Marlika

    I not even a fan of Onikas but I plucks with this song. I like how she’s incorporated 90’s dance hall into it. ??

  • Neva RuthLess

    I was born in 1995, and I miss everything about the 99s, especially the music. I listen to 80s and 90s music everyday. It’s not just you lol.

  • Guest

    Lmao! I had to scroll back up. It does look like her mom.

  • Liz

    Well - I hated that. However I do want to go listen to Heads High now.

  • Guest

    Ummm no. NIcki, maybe ya need to dip ya toe in some soca. Try something with Bunji or Olatunji cause this ain't it. You are a Trini!

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Now that still pic Auntie posted up top she looks terrible but in the video she looks nice. You know Auntie has to post the most unflattering pics of people she doesn't like. LOL

  • Wreckognize Game

    Does anybody here like Trina's song that features Nicki?

  • missmiami305

    I hate that she’s with this dude. The track has a summer vibe to it. Been riding to that and Trina’s BAPS all day. That’s about as ratchet as I can get these days ?????. Happy FRI-YAY ???

  • Rayne


  • Seldomseen

    Did she have hip implants

  • Renee26

    I thought it was 2 of them

  • missmiami305

  • Rayne

    Y’all too young tho.

  • Marlika

    There is, they’re sisters.

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Looks like some kind of horrific fat transfer

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Toni Braxton, Mary J Blige, Lauren Hill, Janet Jackson, Brandy, Monica, Aaliyah, Erykah Badu now that was music honey. They are who I grew up listening too. Then here came Adina Howard, Foxy Brown, Lil Kim and Monifah leading a pack of whore arse bishes and now sex is all that women talk about in music. Sad that these girls have no true role models in music anymore.

  • Wreckognize Game

    I just like Trina and want her to win. I appreciated her using the Cash Money music

  • abby500

    Very catchy and a good quality song and she raps the hell out of it....per usual. Give her her props. If we must compare... Crappy B. can’t hang.

  • Seldomseen

    Oh ok cuz I’m like girl is your grandmother your body double

  • Bossy704

    Is this supposed to get people to buy tickets to the tour she cancelled? She should link up with some other popular artists and try again.

  • Seldomseen


  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Sick of all the RATCHET NESS... THEY MAKE MONEY OFF THE BACKS OF THESE EASILY INFLUENCED LIL MISGUIDED AND UNNURTURED millenials and their teen parents (who are tryna recapture they're youth) TO STAY MATERIALISTICALLY INCLINED and relevant... No positive messages just all sex drugs and raunch...

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    She done got big

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    She should GTFOH cause she laid on that back of hers, craweld around on her knees, sold her soul for a come up.. folk forget she and Cardi are one of the same!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

  • Rayne

    Chile.... I was just outside looking through a glass door...when I saw a tall chick with a big ole shaky ass with triangle shaped panties on under a FITTED skirt. (I’m not shy at all.) I came out that door so fast baabaay girlfriend was throwing that ass in a circle , octagon, and a damn triangle. I walked clean up to her and said who u running from & do u need help she said (lmao) nobody all serious looking. I said how you do it? She said what.. I said throw so many shapes at one time. We started laughing. I’m meeting her tomorrow at the beach. ? I like making friends but I am flirtatious as fawk ?????

  • Renee26
  • AphroKween

    You sure that is all..........lmao!

  • Renee26

    I prefer old school rap too... It also included the same topics: sex, drugs, drinkin, pimpin etc. I listen to the ish everyday.

    Last week I was over one of my more conservative friends houses organizing and was listening to E40 on speaker... She damn near had a heart attack hearing all the cursing and what he was rapping about.

    But it's E40 so it's ok ?

  • SpiceGirl

    And she can cook too

  • Minx Mosaic

    Just as I thought, nothing to see/hear here. The same crap as usual. Nothing new or innovative. You can always tell how much intelligence and high self esteem a woman has based on her conversation or in this case of a rapper, her lyrics. When you actually have a brain and you're confident in who you are and you truly aspire to inspire, you don't have to tell people how good or pricey your pussy is. Only women who have absolutely nothing else to bring to the table will talk up their sex game. That's just like a man who only talks about how much money he has and how big his dick is. Boring and played out. After taking a break, this was all she was able to come up with? Damn, she must be broke and desperate.

  • Dun Dilly

    Nikki's 15 minutes has expired.

  • Coco Mcluvin

    I was wondering the same thing on that Songwriter award post especially, lol

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Yeah but I have seen the progression of Nicki also. she is getting lighter and hips and asz wider.. I want her to ease off and just be her own great self. I actually liked her before all the so called "upgrades"

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • Nina Ross

    She better start selling makeup & putting some of these youngin’s on

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Ugh...I just hate that she has no development as an artist even though she's been in the game for 12+ years and she's talented...I don't like the Mr. Vegas Heads High Remix sample at all... I was raised in the 90's where the original song was a teen club and house party banger...

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Absolutely! You're right hun she definitely is lighter and heavy round bout the hip area.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    The beat "track" was a summer vibe...back in 1998 where it should have stayed...She shouldn't have sampled Mr. Vegas...

  • Rayne

    Ion know what’s going on but I’m rolling with it??

  • BlockingTrollsAllYearLong

    10 years. Shame schtick. Issa no for me, dawg. Hard pass.

  • Applebootay

    I kept avoiding this post all day....lemme go see what this ish sound like <>

  • Applebootay

    It wasn't as bad as I thought.....I mean...I won't be downloaded or nothing....I may let it ride out in the car if it comes on the radio...

  • Ms. Cree

    Nope. Not it.

  • CaramelDrop

    Perfect mirror work tune! I love that little wine the dancers do when she says “tune up”!

  • Kylla Williams

    because cardi admits that she has co writers nicki always says everything she spits she wrote. which was a point iggy made years ago but ppl be too biased to listen and pay attention to facts.

  • Applebootay

    Weeeelllllllll I wouldn't say she rap the hell out of it because it was the same lyrics looped through the entire song...and I'm only replying because as it ended, I was like she really does have more talent than this why isn't she spitting more bars....she rapped a couple lines...but she definitely didn't spit bars like she's capable of doing.

  • Applebootay


  • Applebootay

    Oh that's her dude in the video? Excuse me, I'm old and slow...

  • Shesus Maryanne Joseph

    I just kept wanting the chile to get up off the floor cuz she’s already squatty enough. Stop tryna hide that centaur body you bought. Don’t be shy Ms. Miraj...gwan and weeble wobble on out that water so we can see yu Trini gyal!

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    That song is as bad as she looks. Horrible

  • Applebootay

    I'm still amazed it took 6 people to come up with 3 verses...

  • IAmLawlessBrooks

    Yup that's her whole man

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    This dumbas s song was written by 6 ppl?? ?? I'm mad she messed around with that Mr. Vegas beat. He doesn't need to be dragged down with this mess.

  • Primo Levi

    Weebly wobble damn it's that bad the price 4 fame huh! Was it worth it c instead about rapping about sucking cock stripping taking ppl money not messing with broke dudes should've been empowering women & men 2 help secure the future of our race & teach them how 2 own & build up instead of looking like playdo & destroying the youth of our race!

  • RiDONKulous

    Why do all her songs sound the same? Same flow, same rhymes,l etc I am seriously done with her MegaDONE ? she bores the sheet out of me I don't care at all about her fake body or the way she looks either which is why she is popular cos god knows she has no talent.

  • Primo Levi

    Megatron should killed this bih 4 using his name copyright infringement by making a garbage ass song! Where the real women rappers at I guess they all died in the 90's with pac & big too!


    Yep I rarely see someone her size dressing the way she dresses look that great. Nicki Minaj has very cute shape when she came on the scene... she been eating a whole lot of plantains... when chicks who have plastic surgery gain weight it normally looks a hot mess but somehow Nicki don’t look crazy. Yep stand by my statement that’s odd for someone her size to look that great ??.

  • Parent

    Why do you hate that she with him? He is fine. And if she likes him and he makes her happy. Some girls need a street looking dude. I say "looking" because being street doesn't necessarily mean be involved in street activity , just look it. I love a street dude. Can't stop won't stop
