The single is produced by Lady Gaga hitmaker RedOne.
“There was so much love surrounding the making of the song, because RedOne is just so sweet to work with,” Minaj told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show.
“He just sent me that one day and he said, ‘Hey, I got something for you!’ I was like ‘You got to be kidding me, right?’ I went to the studio and started writing … scratch that … I didn’t even write the first verse! That was just me mumbling and just saying the first thing that came to my head, and we recorded it, because I just felt like, let’s go to the beach … let’s go get away. It was just so good. It feels good!”
“Starship” is the latest track to get an advance preview before Nicki drops Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded on April 1.
