Nicki Minaj - Your Love

Do bah do bah do bah do do do oh.
Do bah do bah do do do oh.
Do bah do bah do do.
[Chorus:]
Shawty Imma only tell you this once, you're the ill-est. (bah ba dah dah oh)
And for your lovin' Imma Die Hard like Bruce Willis. (bah ba dah dah oh)
You got spark, you-you got spunk.
You-you got something all the girls want.
You're like a candy store, and I'm a toddler.
You got me wantin' more and m-m-more of,
Your love, your love. (yeah) x4
Your love, your love. X4
[Verse:]
Yo.
He the type to pop tags and be c*** in the brim.
Might breeze through The Ave, might stop at the gym.
And he keep a Du rag, keep his waves on swim.
W-w -aves on swim so they hate doin' him.
Anyway I think I met him sometime before.
In a different life or where I record I mean he was Adam, I think I was Eve.
But my vision ends with the apple on the tree.
's' on my chest cuz I am ready to save him.
Cuz I'm the one like I'm chasin' ma baby
And I think I love him, like I mean it's kinda shady
When he call me mama, Lil' mama, I call him baby.
[Chorus:]
Shawty Imma only tell you this once, you're the ill-est. (bah ba dah dah oh)
And for your lovin' Imma Die Hard like Bruce Willis. (bah ba dah dah oh)
You got spark, you-you got spunk.
You-you got something all the girls want.
You're like a candy store, and I'm a toddler.
You got me wantin' more and m-m-more of,
Your love, your love. (yeah) x4
Your love, your love. X4
(Yo, yo)
[Verse 2:]
He they type to keep a couple hundred grand in the rubber band.
Just left Money Gram in the Lemon Lam.
Hot damn make me scream like summer jam.
I mean dat nigga must be from the motherland.
Anyway I think I met him in the sky When I was a Geisha he was a Samurai.
Somehow I understood him when he spoke Thai.
Never spoke lies and he never broke fly.
"S" on my chest let me get my cape on.
With a certificate dat I changed ma name on
N-N-Name on, with a certificate dat I changed ma name on
[Chorus:]
Shawty Imma only tell you this once, you're the illest. (bah ba dah dah oh)
And for your lovin' Imma Die Hard like Bruce Willis. (bah ba dah dah oh)
You got spark, you-you got spunk.
You-you got something all the girls want.
You're like a candy store, and I'm a toddler.
You got me wantin' more and m-m-more of,
Your love, your love. (yeah) x4
Your love, your love. X4
Find me in the dark.
I'll be in the stars.
Find me in your heart.
I'm in need of your love.

"Your Love" is a song by Trinidadian-born American rapper and singer Nicki Minaj, taken from her debut studio album "Pink Friday". It was released on June 1, 2010 by Young Money, Cash Money, and Universal Motown as the lead single of the album. The song was written by Minaj, Joseph Hughes, David Freeman, and Andrew "Pop" Wansel, and was produced by the latter. Minaj originally intended to release "Massive Attack" as the lead single from Pink Friday, though its release was scrapped after an underwhelming commercial performance. Described as a "rap ballad", the song is a change of tempo compared to Minaj's previous work, and according to Mariel Concepcion of Billboard, the song contains a "new brand of hood majesty." The song samples Annie Lennox's 1995 cover version of the song "No More I Love You's" (1986) by The Lover Speaks, using its background vocals with additional bass, hip-hop backbeats and drum loops added. The song peaked at numbers 14 and four on the US Billboard Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts, respectively. As of June 2016 the song has sold 1.5 million digital downloads. The first version of "Your Love" appeared on Nicki Minaj's unofficial mixtape Barbie World (2010), with different lyrics included in the pre-chorus along with a faster pace. Another version was later stolen and leaked online. The song underwent minor lyrical adjustments and mixing before being sent to mainstream radio, as the first official single from Minaj's debut album Pink Friday (2010). In an interview with Hot 93.7 radio, Minaj spoke about the leak of the song, saying "That was a leak and I was so upset they put it out 'cause I recorded that song like two years ago. Next thing you know, people started falling in love with it." Whilst on set on the music video for "Your Love", Minaj further explain about the song's theft and leak, saying, "I was not planning on putting the song out at all. But then I heard it one day, somebody told me it was online. And I was like, 'No way, no way in the world that song is out.' I went and listened to it and was really upset. It wasn't mixed, it wasn't finished, it wasn't anything — I wasn't gonna use it at all. But then radio started playing it." "Your Love" debuted on the US Billboard Hot 100 at 51, becoming Minaj's first song to chart on the Hot 100 as a solo artist. It eventually peaked at No. 14, becoming her first Top 20 in the country. It debuted at No. 23 on the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, and peaked at number four. "Your Love" peaked at No. 1 on the US Rap Songs chart for eight consecutive weeks. Minaj became the first female rapper to top the chart since Lil' Kim's "Magic Stick", featuring 50 Cent. Minaj also became the first artist to lead the chart with a song without any features since Missy Elliott in 2003 with "Work It". The song was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) denoting sales of over one million copies.
