After spending a little time in Europe this past summer, I can say with confidence that Nicki Minaj transcends national borders. Her club-pop smash Starships, in particular, was even more ubiquitous across the pond than it was Stateside. That’s not to say there aren’t differences in taste, however. With U.S. Fans bumping the Cassie -assisted The Boys, the Harajuku Barbie’s decided to ramp up anticipation for her Roman Reloaded re-release overseas with Va Va Voom, a thumping, Dr. Luke, Kool Kojak and Cirkut-produced club cut with a hookier, more upbeat feel. So, Booth readers, which single do you prefer? Va Va Voom is available now as a bonus track on the deluxe edition of Roman Reloaded, the expanded “Re-Up” version of which is scheduled for release November 19.
