"You know I worked with her before on Rated R and she was just writing me some really good ballads and I couldn't wait to work with her again and finally have her on my record..It's a really fun song. It's called ‘Raining Men’. No, nothing like the original. It's quite up-tempo but kind of quirky and funny...[Nicki] has a great buzz and she has a 'thing' to her. She is a star and that's why people love her. She's also really entertaining with her visual as well as her lyrics and she has a great melody."
