"Massive Attack" is a song by Nicki Minaj featuring Sean Garrett. The song was produced by Garrett and Alex da Kid. It was released as a single on April 13, 2010. It was intended to be the lead single from Minaj's debut album, Pink Friday; due to poor chart performance, however, the song was scrapped from the album.

Garrett later revealed that Minaj did not allow full creative control of song as he had had on previous work with Usher, Beyoncé, and Ciara. "I didn't have control of the entire creative process. A lot of [other] artists trust me enough and allow me to do what I know is best to do as a producer."[1]

Despite its commercial failure, critics gave the song positive reviews and it has since become a fan favorite.

Music VideoEdit

A music video for the single was shot on March 15, 2010 in the deserts of Lancaster, California, directed by Hype Williams. It's Minaj's only music video to be in native 4:3 ("Pills N Potions" was likely cropped).
