‘Super Grace’: Nicki Minaj ‘Super Bass’ Turns Christian
Nicki Minaj‘s smash hit ‘Super Bass‘ has received unlikely covers by everyone from country music star Taylor Swift to 8-year-old YouTube sensation Sophia Grace Brownlee. Now, it looks like the female MC’s hit has gotten the remix treatment from one of the most unlikely sources of all.
A group of University of Florida students have remade Minaj’s rap song into a Christian tune about falling for a fellow Christ lover, and have renamed it ‘Super Grace!’ The parody was written by University of Florida student Raychel Manko, who made an accompanying music video with her UF friends to enhance the holy experience. In the visuals, Manko pays tribute to Minaj’s eccentric fashion sense by rocking an electric blue wig.
She raps in a church while standing at a pulpit, replacing Nicki’s lyrics with, “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,” with her own holy verse, “this one is for the boys with the true religion/ And love with the lord and done with sinnin’/ When he come up in the church he be praisin’ up/ Always tithes, but he’s still savin’ up.”
Manko herself calls the spoof “a humorous, somewhat exaggerated commentary about the single Christian girl’s struggle to appreciate the wonderful Christian man in her life while still guarding her heart and waiting patiently upon the Lord.”
