The mannequin challenge has proven to be a powerful viral force, already impacting the world outside of social media by catapulting Rae Sremmurd and Gucci Mane's "Black Beatles" to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. This caused a chain reaction that saw the reawakening of Nicki Minaj. The rapping Nicki Minaj. The Nicki Minaj rapping machine who stole the show on Kanye West's "Monster."

Today, she dropped her take on the track, "Black Barbies."

The song is shamelessly, unabashedly Nicki, and it's just great to hear her spit like this again. From addressing Trump twice, to putting other rappers in their place to bragging about her status as only she can, this is exactly what we wanted from Nicki.
