Lady Marmalade Ensemble

A couple of days ago this mammer jammer made its début over my car speakers and I was super happy about it.

Basically, Jessie J (who has a serious set of pipes) has collaborated with Ariana Grande (more killer pipes), and Nicki Minaj (because what’s a song without some random rapping in it) to produce, what I think is, a more modern “Lady Marmalade” ensemble. Remember the Christina-Aguilara-Lil’Kim-Mýa-Pink Lady Marmalade circus? Yea – this sounds very similar. But I like it!

It’s, like, all about how these three fine pop divas are better than the other woman in a bunch of different ways; I have no idea what Nicki Minaj means to say in her verse but I’m sure it’s totally relevant.

Nothing groundbreaking here with the exception of how little 21-year-old baby face Ariana can show you how to “graduate” – not just hold your hand. I had no idea she was so experienced (see her verse below).

Otherwise, I love Jessie and Ariana together – I think they have strong voices. I can do without Nicki but I’m sure the struggle is real these days for her… well, with the similar-sounding Iggy all over the radio too. All in all, it’s a fun end-of-summer jam just in time for my trip to Newport this weekend, and Labor Day weekend.

She got a body like an hourglass
But I can give it to you all the time
She got a booty like a Cadillac
But I can send you into overdrive
(Stop and wait, wait for that, stop, hold up, swing your bat)
See anybody could be bad to you, you need a good girl to blow your mind, yeah

Bang, bang into the room
I know you want it
Bang, bang all over you
I’ll let you have it
Wait a minute, let me take you there
Wait a minute til you…
Bang, bang there goes your heart
I know you want it
Back, backseat of my car
I’ll let you have it
Wait a minute, let me take you there
Wait a minute til you…

[Ariana Grande]
She might’ve let you hold her hand in school
But I’mma show you how to graduate
No, I don’t need to hear you talk the talk
Just come and show me what your momma gave
(Your love gotta be baby, love but don’t say a thing)
See anybody could be good to you, you need a bad girl to blow your mind

[Nicki Minaj]
It’s Myx Moscato
It’s frizz in a bottle
It’s Nicki full throttle
It’s oh, oh
Swimming in the grotto
We winning in the lotto
We dipping in the pot of blue foam
Kitten so good
It’s dripping on wood
Get a ride in the engine that could
Go, Batman robbin’ it
Bang, bang, cockin’ it
Queen Nicki dominant, prominent
It’s me, Jessie, and Ari
If they test me they sorry
Ride his c–k, like a Harley
Then pull off in this Ferrari
If we hanging, we banging
Phone ranging, he slanging
It ain’t karaoke night but get the mic ‘cause he singing
