After debuting the song at the 2014 MTV EMA‘s a week ago, Nicki Minaj drops the official studio version of “Bed Of Lies” featuring Skylar Grey! The track serves as her latest iTunes promotional single in support of her upcoming third studio album The Pinkprint, which is due out December 15 via Young Money, Cash Money and Republic Records. Produced by Alex Da Kid and Kane Beatz, “Bed Of Lies” is soft and emotional, piano-driven ballad that sees Onika putting her ex-boyfriend on blast. “You could never make eye contact / Everything you got was based off of my contacts,” Nicki confesses while reflecting on dark times in her relationship. “Couldn’t believe that I was home alone contemplating overdosin’, no more coastin’, no more toastin’ over oceans.” While I do think Skylar’s hook is quite beautiful, the song is kind of doing absolutely nothing for me. I’m still waiting to be wowed by Nicki this era but it has yet to happen. What do you guys think?
