“Starships” is a song by Trinidadian-American rapper and singer Nicki Minaj from her second studio album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded (2012). It was released on February 14, 2012 by Young Money, Cash Money, and Universal Republic as the lead single from the album. The song was written by Minaj, Nadir Khayat, Carl Falk, Rami Yacoub, and Wayne Hector, and it was produced by RedOne, Yacoub, and Falk.

“Starships” peaked inside the top five in over fifteen countries. It debuted in the top ten on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, and spent a total of 21 consecutive weeks in the top ten, breaking a chart record at the time. The song has sold 4.5 million digital downloads in the U.S. as of 2014, and has been certified six-times platinum by the RIAA, becoming her second-highest certified solo single in the U.S. The song is among the best-selling singles of all time worldwide, with 7.2 million copies sold, as of December 2012.

The corresponding music video was shot on Oahu Island, Hawaii. Directed by Anthony Mandler, the video features Minaj on a beach in a bikini, and near the end of the video, it shows her at a party, dancing to the song. The music video was well received by music critics, many praising the kaleidoscopic effects in the video and the carefree atmosphere. The music video won Best Female Video at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards. The song was included in the 2012 video game Dance Central 3 and it is included in the best-selling video game Just Dance 2014. It is also one of the select few songs available on Just Dance 2014s demo version.

Minaj has performed the song live in a number of appearances, and it was the encore performance on the Pink Friday: Reloaded Tour. The song has sparked controversy surrounding a pulled live performance. In September 2013, electronic artist Clive Tanaka filed suit against Minaj and the writers of the song, claiming it infringed on his own composition and recording “Neu Chicago”, but the lawsuit later was dismissed.

Lyrics

[Intro]
RedOne
Uh

[Verse 1]
Let’s go to the beach, each
Let’s go get a wave
They say what they gonna say
Have a drink, clink, found the Bud Light
Bad bitches, like me, is hard to come by
The patron own, let’s go get it on
The zone on, yes, I’m in the zone
Is it two, three? Leave a good tip
I’ma blow off my money and don’t give two shits, oh-oh

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m on the floor, floor
I love to dance
So give me more, more
‘Til I can’t stand
Get on the floor, floor
Like it’s your last chance
If you want more, more
Then here I am

[Chorus]
Starships, were meant to fly
Hands up, and touch the sky
Can’t stop ’cause we’re so high
Let’s do this one more time
Starships, were meant to fly
Hands up, and touch the sky
Let’s do this one last time
Can’t stop…

[Post-Chorus]
We’re higher than a motherfucka
We’re higher than a motherfucka
We’re higher than a motherfucka

[Verse 2]
Jump in my hoopty-hoopty-hoop
I own that
And I ain’t payin’ my rent this month
I owe that
But fuck who you want, and fuck who you like
Dancehall life, there’s no end in sight
Twinkle, twinkle little star
Now everybody let me hear you say ray, ray, ray
Now spend all your money, ’cause today payday
And if you’re a G, you a G-G-G
My name is Onika, you can call me Nicki

[Pre-Chorus]
Get on the floor, floor
Like it’s your last chance
If you want more, more
Then here I am

[Chorus]
Starships, were meant to fly
Hands up, and touch the sky
Can’t stop ’cause we’re so high
Let’s do this one more time
Starships, were meant to fly
Hands up, and touch the sky
Let’s do this one last time
Can’t stop…

[Post-Chorus]
We’re higher than a motherfucka
We’re higher than a motherfucka
We’re higher than a motherfucka

[Chorus]
Starships, were meant to fly
Hands up, and touch the sky
Can’t stop ’cause we’re so high
Let’s do this one more time
Starships, were meant to fly
Hands up, and touch the sky
Let’s do this one last time
Can’t stop…

[Post-Chorus]
We’re higher than a motherfucka
We’re higher than a motherfucka
We’re higher than a motherfucka
