Nicki Minaj’s #1 Platinum album ‘Pink Friday’

In appreciation of John B’s unique drum and bass style, Cash Money Records’ very own world-wide superstar, Nicki Minaj, has chosen to heavily sample John B’s drum and bass hit, ‘Red Sky’ on her debut album ‘Pink Friday’ on her track “Here I am”.

Minaj is best known for her own unique blend of hip hop and R&B, which saw her peak to #1 in the US charts for ‘Pink Friday’. The Album also reached Platinum status (industry recognition for selling 1m albums, plus). Beta Recordings’ very own John B is proud to have been a part of it!

Known for its famous heavy motorbike synth and trance piano, ‘Red Sky’ fits in perfectly as the backing track to Minaj’s vocals in her personal song, ‘Here I Am’. Listen below to hear both tracks and follow the links to buy ‘Red Sky’ and more tracks on John B’s latest album ‘Light Speed’.
