Sean Kingston, Nicki Minaj: ‘Born to Be Wild’ Released
Sean Kingston enlists the lyrical stylings of Nicki Minaj for a new track titled ‘Born to Be Wild.’ Though the initial song previously leaked, the duo drop the full effort for fans looking to hear yet another collaboration from the two since 2010’s ‘Letting Go (Dutty Love).’
On the song, which features a sample from The Tokens’ 1960’s hit ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’ and commences with an elephant sounding off, Kingston lets loose about a girl who’s changed him from a player to a loyal man in love.
“I was just a player in the game of love ’til she came and turned the tables around/ Stackin’ up the chips, linin’ up all the cards ’til they call came tumblin’ down,” he croons.
Minaj calls on her alter ego Martha to close out the track, putting on her British accent for fun. “I am Martha, you King Arthur/ Who knew you would land me/ I’ve been known to eat these rappers/ Cook ’em like Chef Ramsey,” the Queens native raps.
Kingston is currently crafting his third album, as yet untitled, while Minaj is working on her second, ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded,’ due Feb. 14, 2012.
