Nicki Minaj Remixes Maroon 5’s ‘Sugar’
Nicki Minaj surprises with her remix of Maroon 5's track, "Sugar."
The "Truffle Butter" rapper plays on the idea of sugar with sweet lyrics that call out different types of candy but she keeps things sassy with her smart lyricism. She quickly gets down to business on the guitar-driven pop track.
"Yo, I got them Now & Laters, and them Jolly Ranchers too / It ain't a question, but I got the answers too / These shoes is Cavalli, and the pants is, too / When I see him I'ma strip like the dancers do / I'ma show them how to do it like the pamphlets do / Show these girls how to do it off campus too / Yo, as long as you know he got the baddest, I'm flattered / I'm the only one that he answers to," she raps.
The Young Money rhymer doesn't only rap on the verse; she shows off her singing voice before Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine starts. "And if you need it then I'ma put it on ya / Ain't nothin' sweeter, you want this sugar, don't ya? / Up, down, inside, water park it, slip slide / Would'a, should'a, could'a got ya sugar, get ya sugar," she sings.
Aside from a few synth layers and additional beats, the song stays fairly similar to the original track. Both the band and Nicki hinted at the effort by posting the cover art on social media, which you can see below.
If you're feeling the track, you can grab it on iTunes.
