Breaking Down What Kind of Man Nicki Minaj Wants Through “Super Bass”

“Super Bass” is a catchy song. And Nicki Minaj has an ass that won’t quit… giving me boners! ::looks for a high-five from no one::

You might find yourself wanting to win Nicki Minaj’s heart or sexual organs. I’ve done some careful calculations, analyzed her hit single and established the areas of priority Minaj looks for in a man. Unfortunately, hot fashion and money seems to be winning over an appreciation of Proust. Welcome to the harsh reality of the dating world, internet.

Breakdown of the song (with explanations of terminology)

The Breakdown

Material Objects/Physical Prowess

  • Boys with the booming system (could be a home stereo, but with the next line we will assume in a car)
  • Top down, AC with the cooling system (Wasteful. Air Conditioning while in a convertible?!?)
  • Got stacks on deck like he savin’ up
  • He might got a deal (record label, but this feels like less a desire for a fellow artist and more a man who is about to come into some money)
  • He pop bottles and he got the right kind of bill
  • He might sell coke (yea, that’s weird)
  • He always in the air, but he never fly coach
  • When he make it drip, drip kiss him on the lip, lip (he’s making out with money as he throws cash around at the bar)
  • Nice ties
  • Nice polo shirts
  • Entrepreneur niggas in the moguls (not skiing)
  • Nice fitted caps
  • He just gotta give me that look/has sickenin’ eyes (we give this double mention two points so it weighs fairly in the chart)
  • American (you’re God damn right)


  • When he come up in the club, he be blazin’ up (smoking, clubbing)

Inner Strength

  • He ill (either he has tremendous skill at something or he’s depraved)
  • He real
  • He dope
  • He a motherfucking trip, trip
  • You’re so shy
  • Slicker than the guy with the thing on his eye (Slick Rick)
  • He could ball with the crew, he could solo (Someone who is independent)
  • In touch with your feminine side

Negative Traits

  • He cold (emotionally shut off?)
  • Like pelican fly (“completely wasted/high stoned to the point of totally losing it”


  • Sailor of the ship, ship
