    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    “Only” is a song by American rapper Nicki Minaj, from her upcoming third studio album, The Pinkprint (2014). It was released on October 28, 2014 by Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records and Republic Records as the third single from the album.

Critical reception

    “Only” received generally positive reviews from critics. Carolyn Menyes from Music Times gave the song a positive review, saying “With a cool sense of confidence and rhymes that boast of her own sexual and rapping prowess, Minaj is taking the reins, leading into the equally vulgar and explosive rap verses from Drake and Wayne”. Brennan Carley from Spin said “‘Only’ is Nicki at her dirtiest and smartest, rapping with metaphors that’d fly over other rappers’ heads while keeping the glint of a knowing wink always in her eye.” Miles Raymer from Entertainment Weekly praised Minaj’s rap and called it the best part of the song. Chris Coplan from Consequence Of Sound said although it wasn’t the strongest effort from them three, the song was “a great display of how their separate and distinct personalities can still play off one another nicely”. Drew Millard from Noisey praised Lil Wayne’s verse and said “Minaj continues to rap laps around the competition and there’s no indication that that’s going to change any time soon”.

    Matthew Trammell of FADER gave the song a negative review, saying Minaj delivers “sleepy lines” and comes off “a bit desperate”.

Commercial performance

    “Only” debuted at number 6 on the Digital Songs chart selling 76,000 digital downloads in its first week. The song debuted at number 54 on the Billboard Hot 100, it has so far peaked at number 27 on the chart.
