Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, "Up Out My Face"

Just in time for Valentine’s Day: Matching Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj softcore robot Barbie sex-dolls. Again, Nicki Minaj kinda weirds me out with the Marcel-Marceau stuff. But, in this track that came out early this week and has, unexpectedly, been growing on me ever since, she doesn’t shrink an inch next to Mariah and her rhymes are good. And then, at the end, the video’s director, Mariah’s husband Nick Cannon, pays homage to his starmaking turn in 2002’s Drumline. Hammy stuff. But… oddly and inexplicably? I like it.
