    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. It features additional rap vocals from hip hop artists Drake and Lil Wayne, and also features Chris Brown who sings the chorus of the song. Production was handled by Dr. Luke and Cirkut.

Controversy

    Minaj released a lyric music video for the song in early November 2014, premiering close to the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, with visualisations inspired by the Nazi Regime and the work of Leni Riefenstahl. There was immediate backlash from fans, calling the video anti-semitic and insensitive. Many fans expressed their outrage on social media websites like Twitter, Tumblr, and Oh No They Didn’t.

    Buzzfeed detailed the video, created by Jeff Osborne: “Nicki is depicted as a powerful military leader in charge of an army that look suspiciously like a bunch SS officers. Red flags that feature a distorted, swastika-looking version of her initials are featured throughout the video. There’s a Nuremberg-esque parking lot for her tanks. And her soldiers are shown wearing Nazi-esque armbands.” Osborne was inspired by conspiracy theorist Alex Jones in his creation of the video. Gawker pointed out that although Nicki Minaj is not the first entertainer to derive inspiration from Nazi imagery, “generally artists have refrained from using comparisons to Hitler’s regime as a compliment.” Guest-rapper Drake, who is Jewish, was also criticized for his involvement in the video.

    Minaj later issued a statement on the video via her Twitter account, “I didn’t come up with the concept, but I’m very sorry and take full responsibility if it has offended anyone. I’d never condone Nazism in my art,” also citing that her producer is Jewish. The artist behind the video, Jeff Osborne, refused to apologize for the video, confirming that the imagery used was indeed inspired by Nazism: “…if my work is misinterpreted because it’s not a sappy tearjerker, sorry I’m not sorry.” Neither Minaj nor Osborne responded to criticism that the video was released on the anniversary of the Kristallnacht. Minaj tweeted that Osborne was influenced by the Metalocalypse Dethklok music video for “The Gears” as well as Sin City when creating the music video. Brandon Small, creator of Metalocalypse responded to the comparison, stating that “They seem to be confused about art” before deconstruction the meaning behind both videos. He also added that he does not believe Minaj had poor intentions.

music news

    On August 5, 2012, producer Noah “40” Shebib posted the song “Enough Said” by the late singer Aaliyah featuring Drizzy. Aailayah’s voice is supported by40’s signature dark soundscapes.
    Drake is reportedly executive producer of an posthumous Aaliyah album. There is a great deal of debate as to whether an entire album is planned and whether this is appropriate, especially without the input of long-time Aaliyah collaborators Timbaland and Missy Elliott. Drake is known for a deep fascination with Aaliyah, which some commentators claim borders of macabre. Aailayah died in a plane crash in August 2001 at the height of her R&B fame.
    The logo for “Enough Said” features the logo of both Drake's October Very Own and Blackground Records, whose first signee was Aaliyah.
    Timbaland, a long time collaborator with Aaliyah, who is also signed by Blackground Records, told Power 105’s The Breakfast Club, “I know they trying to drop some Aaliyah records, but if [Drake] do it, it should be with me and him, and Missy [Elliott]. I don’t know what’s going on. The proper way to do that would be for me, him, and Missy to be all on the record. For it to be on his record, that would not be right.”
