'Yikes' on YouTube

'Yikes' is a song by American rapper Nicki Minaj. It was released as a standalone single on February 7, 2020. It debuted at number 23 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

Nicki Minaj may not be pregnant now, but she was pregnant for the past nine months or so, until she gave birth just about a month ago. After Nicki posted pictures of herself as pregnant as ever, looking glamorous as hell, fans got a bit confused. Some had missed that Nicki was ever pregnant, and others thought she might just be pregnant again. Nicki Minaj made headlines on Wednesday (February 5th) after engaging in a Twitter war with her ex-boyfriend Meek Mill. The two would exchange nasty insults and accusations about each other. Minaj accused Meek of being physically abusive to her, his mom and sister, while he accused her of knowing that her brother, Jelani Maraj was a rapist. It’s pretty common to hear Islamic phrases like “Assalamualaikum” and “MashAllah” in your favorite rap hits, but the recent discovery of rapper Nicki Minaj following popular Muslim scholar Mufti Ismail Menk on Twitter has turned the Muslim community on its head, with many speculating about Minaj.

Background[edit]

Minaj first teased the song with a snippet on her Twitter on February 4, 2020.[1] The snippet received criticism for lyrics including the late activist Rosa Parks, to which Minaj responded that 'she had no clue anyone was mad' and does not care.[2][3][4] On February 6, 2020, she revealed the cover art and announced that it would be released later that night.[5] The cover shows the rapper and her husband Kenneth Petty in a red sports car with Minaj waving to paparazzi.[6][1]

Composition and lyrics[edit]

Minaj revealed via Twitter that the song originally only contained one verse, heard in a snippet she previewed online. She jokingly added that her fans and label then 'bullied' her into finishing the song and releasing it.[7]

According to Minaj, she freestyled the chorus, upon hearing the song's beat for the 'very first time'. The outro was also freestyled.[8] Minaj said she wanted to be 'aggressive' on the track, but opted to make a 'switch' after the fourth line in the second verse.[9] The song contains a bass-heavy, click-clack beat and spacey, spare keyboards.[10][11] In the song, Minaj references civil rights activist Rosa Parks, with the line 'All you bitches Rosa Parks, uh-oh, get your ass up'. Trent Fitzgerald of XXL Mag said that the song features a 'biting chorus in which Nicki raps, 'You a clown you do it for likes', noting how 'interestingly, that's the same thing she said during her intense and personal quarrel with [her ex-boyfriend] Meek Mill on social media on February, 5, 2020'.[11]

Critical reception[edit]

Complex magazine's Jessica McKinney listed the song among the best new music of the week, saying it is nice to see 'Nicki's still got it', while calling 'Yikes' a 'cocky record that appears to target the 'clowns' on social media'.[12] Erika Marie of HotNewHipHop gave the song a positive review, and said although the line referencing Rosa Parks 'seemed to get everyone in a tizzy', 'Yikes' 'is much more than a one-liner track'. Marie also opined that despite Minaj having being 'criticized lately for spending more time appealing to the pop music masses, [...] it seems that the Queens emcee is back with the smack-talking rhymes that the Barbz [her fans] can't get enough of hearing'.[13]

Chart performance[edit]

'Yikes' debuted and peaked at number 23 on the US Billboard Hot 100, making it her highest charting promo single as a lead artist while also marking Minaj's 108th entry, an all-time record for a female artist at that time. It also debuted at the summit of the Digital Songs component chart with 20,000 digital downloads sold within its first week of availability, while garnering 15.5 million streams.[1][14] 'Yikes' also debuted at number 6 on the Rolling Stone Top 100.

Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill are trading insults.

The former couple began sparring on social media on Wednesday (February 5) after Meek apparently 'liked' a photo about Nicki's husband, Kenneth Petty.

'Trigger fingers turn to #TwitterFingers bad built face ass obsessed with the Queen,' Nicki wrote.

'N--a been tweeting bout my man for a year now. Talking bout he went to my page to see him but he was blocked. My n--a, move on. I know ya btch embarrassed. S--tted yaself in that store when u got pressed tho. 🤡,' she went on to say.

'The only way you can try to kill my career is to say I beat women ... talk about ya brother convicted of rape and you been knew and paid for his lawyer ... ya little brother touched that lil girl too! You know I know ... you want me to crash with ya boyfriend and I won’t,' Meek wrote.

'You beat your own sister and taped it. Spit on her & taped it. Kicked me in front your mother and sent her to the hospital. Sucking drake d--k made u feel tough again. Move on. Imagine talking about an alleged rape of a child to hurt someone who wasn’t involved just so ppl can dislike me. You can never stand on your own. You won’t tell ppl the mother is on tape asking me for $20 million to make the charge go away tho. U was around. U know. See u soon,' she went on to say.

'You sad you willing to crash your man because you losing now and everybody in the industry know you a bad person! You been knew your brother was raping that little girl that’s why I got away from you!,' Meek said.

If you didn't know, Nicki Minaj's brother was sentenced to 25 years to life after sexually assaulting a child.
