Eight-Year-Old ‘Princess’ Raps Nicki Minaj’s ‘Super Bass’
Nicki Minaj fans come in a wide variety, and the newest Barb on the scene is 8-year-old Sophia Grace Brownlee.
Brownlee is a princess costume-wearing youngster on a first glance, however, she showcases some stellar vocal abilities for her age while performing a cover of the ‘Pink Friday’ creator’s hip-pop hit ‘Super Bass.’
In the clip, she dons a crown and uses a wand as her mic, and even has a backup dancer by her side — friend Rosie Grace wears a matching outfit but never utters a word. Brownlee moves and grooves, spitting bars like, “This one is for the boys with the boomin’ system/ Top down, AC with the coolin’ system/ When he come up in the club, he be blazin’ up/ Got stacks on deck like he savin’ up.”
Surprisingly, the little lady, who speaks with a British accent, knows the lyrics to the popular rap song rather well. When it’s time for the chorus to kick in, that’s when Brownlee turns down the rhymes and turns up the high notes, singing the catchy melody.
For those wondering if the head Barb has caught wind of Brownlee’s performance, she most certainly has. Earlier this week, radio host Ryan Seacrest took to Twitter to share his excitement over the new ‘Super Bass’ cover and Minaj retweeted his sentiments. “BY FAR! —> RT @RyanSeacrest: Of all the covers of @NickiMinaj‘s “Super Bass” this one may take the cake,” she tweeted.
