"Super Bass" is a song by Nicki Minaj on the deluxe edition of her debut album Pink Friday, featured as the first bonus track of the album and features background vocals by American singer Ester Dean. The song was the most commercially successful track off the album. The song is later mentioned in Minaj's song, "Come on a Cone" where she says, "Pink Friday two milli / "Super Bass" triple plat". On the Billboard Hot 100 the song broke the Top 10, peaking at number 3. The song also fared well digitally, reaching x5 platinum in Australia, 4x platinum in Austria, 1x platinum in New Zealand, and Gold in the U.K. Critics praised the fun pop/rap fusion that Minaj pulled off, and many fans of the album were happy as well. However, many of Minaj's old fans were not happy with, "Pop Nicki". Regardless, Super Bass ended being one of the most played, bought, and successful tracks for Nicki and overall in 2011. The song was featured on the Just Dance 4 video game that was released in October 2012. The song has sold over 4M copies in the US, but is 8x Platinum because of new streaming rules.

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]:

This one is for the boys with the boomin' system

Top down, AC, with the cooler system

When he come up in the club

He be blazin' up

Got stacks on deck like he savin' up.

And he ill, he real

He might gotta deal

He pop bottles and he got the right kind of build

He cold, he dope

He might sell coke

He always in the air, but he never fly coach

He a mothafuckin' trip, trip

Sailor of the ship, ship

When he make it drip, drip

Kiss him on a lip, lip

That's the kind of dude I was lookin' for

And yes you'll get slapped if you're lookin', ho

I said, excuse me

You're a hell of a guy

I mean my, my, my, my

Like pelican fly

I mean, you're so shy

And I'm lovin' your tie

You're like slicker than the guy

With the thing on his eye

Yes I did, yes I did

Somebody please tell him who the F- I is

I am Nicki Minaj

I mack them dudes up

Back coupes up, and chuck the deuce up

[Hook]:

Boy you got my heartbeat runnin' away

Beatin' like a drum and it's coming your way

Can't you hear that

Boom da boom boom, boom da boom boom bass

He got that super bass

Boom da boom boom, boom da boom boom bass

Yeah it's that super bass

Boom boom boom boom

Boom boom boom boom

Boom boom boom boom

Boom boom boom boom

Boom da boom boom, boom da boom boom bass

He got that super bass

Boom da boom boom, boom da boom boom bass

Yeah it's that super bass

[Verse 2]:

This one is for the boys in the polos

Entrepreneur niggas and the moguls

He could ball with the crew ,he could so-lo

But I think I like him better when he do-lo

And I think I like him better with the fitted cap on

He ain't even gotta try to put the mack on

He just gotta give me that look

When he give me that look

Then the panties comin' off, off, huh

Excuse me

You're a hell of a guy

You know I really got a thing for American guys

I mean, sigh

Sickenin' eyes

I can tell that you're in touch with your feminine side

Yes I did, yes I did

Somebody please tell him who the F- I is

I am Nicki Minaj

I mack them dudes up

Back coupes up, and chuck the deuce up

[Hook]:

Boy you got my heartbeat runnin' away

Beatin' like a drum and it's coming your way

Can't you hear that

Boom da boom boom, boom da boom boom bass

He got that super bass

Boom da boom boom, boom da boom boom bass

Yeah it's that super bass

Boom boom boom boom

Boom boom boom boom

Boom boom boom boom

Boom boom boom boom

Boom da boom boom, boom da boom boom bass

He got that super bass

Boom da boom boom, boom da boom boom bass

Yeah it's that super bass

[Bridge]:

See I need you in my life for me to stay

No, no, no, no, no, I know you'll stay

Oh, no, no, no, no, don't go away...

Oh you got my heartbeat runnin' away

Don't you hear that heartbeat coming your way

Oh it be like

Boom da boom boom, boom da boom boom bass

Can't you hear that

Boom da boom boom, boom da boom boom bass?...

[Hook]:

Well you got my heartbeat runnin' away

Beatin' like a drum and it's coming your way

Can't you hear that

Boom da boom boom, boom da boom boom bass

He got that super bass

Boom da boom boom, boom da boom boom bass

Yeah that's that super bass

Boom boom boom boom

Boom boom boom boom

Boom boom boom boom

Boom boom boom boom

Boom da boom boom, boom da boom boom bass

He got that super bass

Boom da boom boom, boom da boom boom bass

Music Video Edit

Originally the video was set to premiere on the same show as where the preview was premiered on April 27, 2011, Minaj took to Twitter to reveal that the music video has been pulled from the show and would not be premiering that date for unknown reasons, tweeting "Super Bass is no longer coming out tmrw". The music video instead premiered on Minaj's official Vevo account on May 5, 2011.

I just wanted to do something real colorful and cutesy. This is an icy world, it's a sexy world, i love sexy thing, it's a playful world. Of course I have lots of eye candy for my girls and my boys [...] We have a lot of little surprises in store for this particular video, [...] I would like to put out 50 videos. The videos really tell the story a lot more elaborately than just the song does.
