"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.

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.
