I'm not sure you can class this song as charting on the Bubbling Under Chart at number 22 with a website source. You need a link which has open access. Though you can use the current link to claim that the song did chart on Bubbling Under Hot 100 but its impossible to verify the chart position. Regards, Lil-unique1 (talk) 23:41, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

How else when is the only site with the chart? Candyo32 (talk) 23:44, 21 June 2010 (UTC)
Unless it recieved media review or some reliable site such as Rap-Up reported it. Same thing happened with Ride (Ciara song). here. Regards, Lil-unique1 (talk) 23:49, 21 June 2010 (UTC)
No media reviews have the charting, nor Rap-Up, just on (talk) 23:51, 21 June 2010 (UTC)
What i meant was that if there was a specific article which mentioned that the song charted on Bubbling Under at 22 you can put it on here but with the ref you can only only claim that it charted but not claim the position itself. Regards, Lil-unique1 (talk) 23:53, 21 June 2010 (UTC)
But it's not like the position isn't sourced through the URL which says 122. Candyo32 (talk) 23:56, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

If by url you were referring to the website below... it doesn't show number 122. Lil-unique1 (talk) 00:03, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

That is because login is required. But it is the only source available for it. I mean even if Rap-Up or a site reported it, you would have to use Billboard as a reference as it is up for GA. Candyo32 (talk) 00:06, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
But that's exactly my point. in terms of GA you should remove the chart position and only claim that it charted on the chart. That would be the most verifiable and factual thing to do. Regards, Lil-unique1 (talk) 00:12, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
American English

Small observation. per WP:MOS it should be U.S. in the charts section because UK is not used. Regards, Lil-unique1 (talk) 02:03, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

a "-" on Garret chronology
  • Lead

:a second single, "Your Love", was released in quick succession -> Two months is not a quick succession.  Done, was the work of another editor.

References in the lead are not needed.  Done
  • Background
on ref 2 Georgette Cline made the work  Done
In an interview on the set of the video shoot for "Massive Attack", -> Source does not state it Taken from MTV article "Nikki Minaj on the set of her video for "Massive Attack".."I brought my BFF Amber Rose out here," Nicki said while sitting in her ride. "This is a massive attack. We shot the helicopter scene."
flop of the song and he stated -> he said  Done
I think "Massive Attack" may have -> I think 'Massive Attack' may have  Done
  • Music and lyrics
The section should be merged because it is very small What section do you suggest merging to?
It would be nice having the composition of the song Information is not readily available, another editor put in a request at for them to host the sheet music.
Simba and Mufasa can be wikilinked  Done
Per Wikipedia:Manual of Style (music samples) File:Massiveattack.ogg must be at most 21 seconds  Done
  • Music video
File:Massiveattackvideo.jpg need to be 300px x 300px  Done
106 & Park on -> It was mentioned on the background, so it should be wikilinked there and not here. Linked it above, but kept the second as I was told in a previous review in a detailed article that same links can be used in different sections.
As the song begins we see Minaj in a -> "we"? This does not sounds encyclopedic.  Done

:her Harajuku Army -> is not Harajuku Girls correct? She is leading an army of Harajuku Girls in the video, she's not just commanding a troop of regular Harajuku Girls, and I'm not sure if Minaj stated it as such, either her of the media.

on the car. [14] -> unnecessary space.  Done
Reference 15 does not state it. is the only site that can be used to access the chart, and it is behind a login.
Reference 16 does not state it. Billboard keeps glitching, I don't know what I can do about that. The song isn't in Minaj's chart history, at the time of nomination it appeared in Mariah Carey's current charting songs, and now idk.
Reference 16 need itallics in Billboard  Done
  • General
1 dab link  Done
  • References
on ref 2, 6, 7, 12 and 14 is the publisher.  Done

I've reviewed it, many problems, I put the article on hold until July 15. TbhotchTalk C. 20:54, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Ok all were done and resolved, excepting the "Bubbling" thing, as far as I know .biz is not considerate a reliable source, but either way, it was published in the magazine, so it has non-sense. I have to 'pass this article. TbhotchTalk C. 01:53, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

The band[edit]

Does the title come from Massive Attack the band?- (talk) 14:44, 25 July 2011 (UTC)


Please don’t get this song info twisted with the Wikimedia community. This isn’t Nicki’s debut single, She released more songs back in 2007, 2008, and 2009, which means this is another song by her. KarrellTheKid03 (talk) 21:47, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
