Bulletproof Monster (La Roux X Nicki Minaj Revox)

January 10, 2011

First of all, let’s get this straight. I’m kind of in love with Nicki Minaj. So I don’t really understand when some of my friends wince when I talk about her. I first really noticed her on Bottom’s Up and was really taken with her crazy voices that she’ll go into on a verse. I believe confusion (over at PigeonsAndPlanes) called them cartoon voices and that really sums it up rather nicely. Eminem does the same kind of thing on his tracks and I think it keeps their raps interesting and versatile. When Kanye’s monster of a track, “Monster” came out, I enjoyed it. But most people I talk to agree that Nicki’s verse on it was by far the best thing about it. Colin Munroe certainly agreed with me which is why when he made this mashup he used only her verse to make an entirely new song with the eerie beauty of La Roux’s “Bulletproof” to make the beat. So if you love Nicki like I do, check this out. If you like La Roux, you should check this out. If you wince at Minaj you should still at least give it a 30 second try. Even iTunes gives songs 30 seconds.

UPDATE: I didn’t give enough time to the La Roux side of this song. Colin Munroe’s “revox” of the track means he used his own voice to remix the track and give it new harmonics. It’s a very beautiful effect.

  1. Hm, I like the song a lot, but my opinion is sort of null because I haven’t listened to the songs it comes from.
