Breakdown of Nicki Minaj – ‘Pills N Potions’

nicki-minaj-pillsNPotions

 

I did not write about Nicki Minajs ‘Pills N Potions’ when the song first came out because I needed time to really listen to the song. I wanted to process everything, from the vocals, to the lyrics and the beat. I must admit, when I first heard the snippets I automatically thought that I wouldn’t like it. The more I’ve listened, the more I fell in love.

I’m not such a huge fan of Nicki’s singing but her lyrics are dead on point. When you hear a song and you can really relate it makes you love that song that much more. Nicki shows her growth as well as versatility.

 


Does ‘Pills N Potions’ make you want to go out and buy Nicki’s new album ‘The Pink Print‘?

Pills and potions
We’re overdosing
I’m angry but I still love you
Pills and potions
We’re overdosing
Can’t stand it, but I still love you
I still love, I still love
I still love, I still love
I still love, I still love
I still love, I still love
I still love, I still love

Hey yo, they could never make me hate you
Even though what you was doing wasn’t tasteful
Even though you out here looking so ungrateful
I’mma keep it moving, be classy and graceful
I told ‘em it’s no friends in the game
You ain’t learned that yet
All the bridges you came over, don’t burn that yet
Niggas want respect, but niggas ain’t earned that yet
Self-righteous, and entitled
But they swearing on the Bible that they love you
When really they’re no different from all your rivals
But I still don’t wish death on them, I just reflect on them

Pills and potions
We’re overdosing
I’m angry but I still love you
Pills and potions
We’re overdosing
Can’t stand it, but I still love you
I still love, I still love
I still love, I still love
I still love, I still love
I still love, I still love
I still love, I still love

Yo, people will love you and support when it’s beneficial
I’mma forgive, I won’t forget, but I’mma dead the issue
Soon as you out the nigga’s lives is when they start to miss you
They see you doing good now it’s kinda hard to diss you
Niggas be sick when they remember all the bad they wished you
Niggas be mad when they can’t come and live lavish with you
But I sped off in a Benzy, I see the envy when I’m causing a frenzy
So I pop pills for them, cop cribs in the Hills on ’em

Pills and potions
We’re overdosing
I’m angry but I still love you
Pills and potions
We’re overdosing
Can’t stand it, but I still love you
I still love, I still love
I still love, I still love
I still love, I still love
I still love, I still love
I still love, I still love

I get high off your memory
I get high off your memory
I get high off your memory
In due time, we’ll be fine
In due time…

I still love, I still love
I still love, I still love
I still love, I still love
I still love, I still love
I still love, I still love

 

 

I want to call my old baefriend & be like “I’m angry but I still love you…”

  • This record is ok but I am not to hyped up about it.
  • Meh. The message is a good one, but I’m not loving it. It sounds like a top 20 single though.
  • Gigionthat
    Good Message, not a big fan of the song.
