Coinkydink Or Coinkydonk? The ABBA-Nicki-Minaj Collage

Initially, this post was going to bring up how the start of the chorus in Nicki Minaj’s Super Bass is quite reminiscent of the bridge in Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream, but I found another angle… a sign of the times, if you will.

(SIDENOTE: If you’re interested in which portion of the songs I speak of, here you go:

SUPER BASS: Boy you got my heart beat runnin’ away/ Beating like a drum and it’s coming your way

TEENAGE DREAM: I’ma get your heart racing/ In my skin-tight jeans / Be your teenage dream tonight

That is all…)

So anyhotties, what was I saying?  Oh yeah.

I only recently learned of this terrible song by ABBA called Super Trouper, and it got me thinking… this is a precursor to Nicki Minaj’s Super Bass.  Besides both of them having the world super in their titles, they both have a lot more in common than you’d think (I’ve included the full videos at the end of this post, after the jump).

Aside from one being about –

Super trouper lights are gonna find me…

– and the other being about –

Don’t you hear that heartbeat comin’ your way…

– in both videos you have the following:
