Fresh off her Super Bowl halftime performance with pop superstar Madonna, rapper Nicki Minaj (who was pretty much the highlight of that performance) is making headlines Monday (Feb. 6) because her latest single has leaked online.

The piece is titled “Marilyn Monroe” and is a bit of a departure for the rap artist, showing off her soulful side on a ballad instead of her verbal acumen. Some of the lyrics are as follows:

I can be selfish, yet so impatient sometimes
I feel like Marilyn
I’m insecure, yeah, I make mistakes sometimes,
Feel like I’m at
the end of the road

The song is clearly not completely refined/finished, but we think it’s pretty good. It’s from Nicki’s upcoming LP “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded,” which is due out April 3, 2012.

What do you think, Nicki fans?
