    Student Takes Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” to a Higher Level

    Have you heard Nicki Minaj’s song “Super Bass”?

    A while ago, Nicole wrote a post on Minaj’s explicit lyrics. “Super Bass” is a prime example. Minaj leaves nothing to the imagination and her lyrics often are offensive and disturbing. Here’s a taste:

    He a muthaf—in trip, trip, sailor of the ship, ship
    When he make it drip, drip kiss him on the lip, lip
    That’s the kind of dude I was lookin’ for
    And yes you’ll get slapped if you’re lookin’ ho

    But University of Florida student Raychel Manko saw some potential in Minaj’s song. She took “Super Bass” to a whole new level so that its message, in contrast, may actually please God rather than offend Him.

    Check out the video below.

    Some of the lyrics from Manko’s website are below:

    Super Grace
    Written and Performed by Raychel Manko

    This one is for the boys with the true religion.
    In love with the Lord and done with sinnin’.
    When he come up in the church he be praisin’ up.
    Always tithes but he’s still savin’ up.
    And he still. He real. He knows God’s will.
    He don’t pop bottles, but still knows how to thrill.
    He’s bold, has hope, and loves God’s folk.
    He’s always in prayer and above reproach.
    He’s a Jesus-loving man, man.
    Trusting in God’s plan, plan.
    Waiting for the band, band.
    He’ll just hold my hand, hand.
    That’s the kind of dude I was praying for.
    And I’ll wait on the Lord until I know.
    I said, excuse me. You’re a heck of a guy.
    I mean, my, my, my, my, you’re like a Kappa Phi.
    I mean, you’re Spirit-led, and you don’t even try.
    You’re like as holy as the guys in Beta Upsilon Chi.

    Chorus:
    Oh! Yes, I did. Yes, I did.
    Don’t even worry ‘bout who I is.
    I’m like Proverbs 31, and in Christ I’m satisfied but…
    Christian boys got my heart beat running away.
    But I need to guard my heart so I’ll pray,
    ‘God give me Your Hallelujah, Hallelujah grace.
    God I need Your Hallelujah, Hallelujah grace.
    Give me Your super grace.’
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah (x2)
    God, give me Your Hallelujah, Hallelujah grace.
    God, give me Your Hallelujah, Hallelujah grace.
    Give me Your super grace.

    I don’t know what Manko’s intentions were when she decided to rewrite “Super Bass.” Maybe it was to have fun or maybe it was to glorify God. Whatever the reason, her efforts prove one important thing: You can take any genre of song and use it to glorify Him. I just wish more artists would use their creative talents in a positive and Godly fashion.

    What do you think of Raychel Manko’s version of Minaj’s song? Do you think it’s okay to take an ungodly song and remake it into a Godly one?

    1. I think Raychel Manko’s version of Minaj’s song is way better than the original. I think it’s okay to take an ungodly song and remake it into a Godly one. After all, we are supposed to glorify him in everything we do.

    2. Check out Beckah Shae’s Pop Medley songs on Youtube! If you dont’ know her, she is a Christian artist, much like Tobymac. Her songs are so uplifting! She covers all sorts of songs that are ungodly, and changes them! It’s awesome!

    3. I’ve been spreading the word about this website! One of my friends signed the online Petition (sorry if i spelled that wrong) But thanks for sharing all this stuff! I don’t listen to Lady Gaga or Katy Perry anymore! 😀

    4. I love it when I find Christian remixes of secular songs. My bro seems really good at finding them, like for “Dynamite” “Tik Tok” “Airplanes” and even “Soulja Boy”. There’s nothing wrong with having a little fun, especially when that fun is glorifying God at the same time.

    5. lol this is so cute:) Oh my gosh Nicki Minaj is so annoying but she makes me feel like I need to throw myself at a guy. This is really cute… I wouldn’t see it as a song all by itself but wow it has a good message and I really think she did it for God, not just for herself. I like the part where she said “I need to guard my heart so I’ll pray”. Maybe Nicki Minaj is a better dancer than they were… but even her voice makes me cringe-_- good job for writing this song! 🙂
