Right By My Side is a song by Trinidadian-American recording artist, Nicki Minaj, taken from her sophomore studio album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded (2012). Whereas I’m not a typical Minaj fan, I love it because it also features additional vocals from R&B artist Chris Brown.
It is an upbeat, down tempo, pop ballad infused with elements of R&B and hip hop. It has been heavily compared to several other songs, including Jordin Sparks’ No Air, in which Brown was featured, Rihanna’s You da One, and even Minaj’s own track Right Thru Me. Critics noted the songs “bubbly” persona, as well as its high quality production. Great track!
