Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” Leaks Online, Samples Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back”
Nicki Minaj’s new single “Anaconda” seems to have gotten out a few days ahead of schedule. Today news broke that a low-quality version of the track had leaked on the ‘net. This comes after the song’s initial release date (July 28) was pushed back to Aug. 4.
The rapper created anticipation for track off her upcoming album The Pink Print last month when she released its provocative cover art. The garnered attention even had singer Eric Bellinger talking about his involvement in the making of the track, despite recent denial from Nicki and skepticism from Polow Da Don that he played a part in the production.
From what can be heard on the leak, Polow and Da Internz have sampled Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back,” which is only fitting seeing Nicki’s pose on the “Anaconda” cover.
The song so far has used snippets from the original hit, including “My anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns hun” and the voice clip “oh my God, Becky, look at her butt.”
Hopefully Nicki well be granted the same success as Sir Mix-A-Lot with the new track.
