LISTEN: Nicki Minaj slows things down on "Pills N Potions"

Despite her claims of stepping away from the pop sound that made her a pop radio staple, it seems Nicki Minaj isn't ready to abandon the genre completely. 

Her new single "Pills N Potions" recalls the downtempo sound of songs like "Right Thru Me," featuring an angelic chorus and bridge (sung by Nicki herself) alongside rapped verses. The song builds toward a satisfying climax with lush horns. 

Still, it's not a continuation of the hard sound she hinted at earlier this year. The single is the first off of her upcoming album currently titled The Pink Print.
