Nicki has a few good songs but I haven't liked anything from her in a while.

I would advice you to start with the 'Shine', 'Eleven' and 'Evolution' albums. They're absolutely great. And I'm deeply thankful to the person who introduced me with her music. Martina is an amazing singer. Here're some great songs I adore.

Glad to see Nicki in the top 50 - 'Pinkprint' is a great album.

A few years later, people have moved on, so I can now tolerate her without her being shoved into my face
Truth.
Unlike other things that wither, she preserves. She’s a constant in a world of relentless flux. She’s a beacon of immortality. Bitch, she’s Madonna.

It is a very good album. I think over exposure however tarnished her brand a bit :-? , and the need to be on so many features. However though, with those features, she usually saved the song.

My love for Nicki peaked in 2012. I still love her and The Pinkprint was an amazing album but I can't see me loving her as much as I did. She was my #12 still

Nicki Minaj gets a bad rap here, which is fair enough, as her most popular songs aren't great reflections of her talent as a lyricist. Dig a bit deeper for mixtape Onika and you get some insight into the greatest female rapper of all-time at her very best. For me, Nicki peaked in 2010 (I loved her so much, she managed a very close second best to Rihanna that year on my 2010 artists countdown), delivered a sub-par 2012, and returned to form in 2014. I expect a new album from her in 2017, and hope it's more Pink Friday and Pinkprint Nicki than Roman Reloaded Nicki. Hell, a return to her Beam Me Up Scotty sound would be divine.

K, but I love Onika. Her part on Kanye's Monster is one of the most delightful things committed to sound.

I didn't realize i put Nicki that high! :o Well most of my choices are filler votes anyway.

I used be a huge fan of her back on her pre-debut/Pink Friday days.

The 2 place of my most favorite Leann's songs will definitely take this amazing 'Love Is An Army' song. The song means a lot to me and it's hard not to shed the tears listening to Leann's soulful performing.

Oh my god, Love Is An Army is actually my favorite song. I can;'t believe i forgot the title of the song but when I was typing my previous post, I was trying to remember that I had a favorite song that she kinda yodeled on the last part. I just forgot the title.

Love Is An Army is my favorite Lean Rimes song. Thanks Dhenapie for this post. :)

That seems quite low considering the R&B increase and that the likes of Brandy, Aaliyah and Toni Braxton haven't appeared yet.

What Dhenapie are you talking about?)) This post was made by me, Christina, but not Dhenapie :D
Here's another Leann's performance of this song where she didn't mix up the first couplet))
