A week after announcing that she would re-release her sophomore album, Nicki Minaj has dropped the first single off "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - The Re-Up". Titled "The Boys", it has R&B singer Cassie lending her vocal in the bass-heavy track.
"You get high/ Love a bunch of girls/ And then cry on top of the world/ I hope you have the time of your life/ I hope I don't lose it tonight," so Cassie sings the melodic hook in between the bouncy beats. The song also includes a reference to "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Stevie J in the voice of his controversial lover Joseline Hernandez ("Did you ever really love me, Stebie?").
"The Boys" will appear in "Pink Friday Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up" which is set for a November release. The set will feature 5-8 new tracks, including a collaboration with Lil Wayne. "So Barbz, you are going to spaz, you are going to love it, you are going to go crazy," she gushed about the upcoming effort when being interviewed on the red carpet of the 2012 MTV VMAs.
