Nicki Minaj Right Thru Me Lyrics

Last updated: 04/07/2012 12:00:00 PM

You see right through me how do you do that shit [3X]
How do you [5X]

You let me win, you let me ride, you let me rock,
you let me slide and when they looking,
you let me hide, defend my honor, protect my pride
The good advice, I always hated but looking back,
it made me greater, you always told me,
forget the haters just get my money, just get my weight up
Know when I'm lying, know when I'm crying
It's like you got it, down to a science, why am I trying,
Know you ain't buying, I try to fight it, back with defiance,
you make me laugh, you make me hoarse from yelling at you,
and getting at you, picking up dishes, throwing em at you,
why are you speaking when no one asked you.


What are we doing, could you see through me,
cause you say Nicki and I say who me?
and you say no you, and I say screw you,
then you start dressing and you start leaving,
and I start crying, and I start screaming,
the heavy breathin', but, what's the reason,
always get the reaction you wanted,
I'm actually fronting, I'm asking you something
YO, answer this question, class is in session,
tired of letting passive aggression, control my mind,
capture my soul, OK, you're right just let it go,
OK you got it, it's in the can, before I played it,
you knew my hand, you can turn a free throw to a goal,
Nigga got the peep hole to my soul


Won't you just stop looking through me 'cause I can't take it, no I can't take it

"Right Thru Me" is the second official single from American rapper and singer Nicki Minaj's Young Money debut album, Pink Friday. The song was released as a digital download on September 14, 2010 before being serviced to urban and rhythmic Radio on October 5 and then mainstream radio on November 2, 2010. The song charted on the US Billboard Hot 100, Australia, and the United Kingdom.

"Right Thru Me" is described as being a R&B or dance-pop track, compared to her usual Rap and features electronic beats and synths. Lyrically, Minaj wonders how a lover can see through her. The song was met with generally positive reviews from critics, commenting on Minaj's lyrical playfulness and accepting the different musical sound.

The music video for the single was shot over the weekend of October 1, 2010 and was directed by Diane Martel and was later premiered on October 27. The concept is a boy-girl relationship drama and features Minaj and her love fighting and arguing, with him threatening to leave her while Minaj tries to apologize. The video was met with positive reviews from critics, with many calling it more natural and deep than her fun and costume-filled videos. Minaj has promoted the song in several live appearances on The Wendy Williams Show, Late Show with David Letterman, Live with Regis and Kelly, Saturday Night Live, and 106 & Park. From Wikipedia
