"Bedrock" is a song from Young Money's album We Are Young Money. It features guest vocals by singer Lloyd. The song was also a bonus track on the Japanese release of Pink Friday, serving as the closing track for this release.
After being leaked in September of 2009 to Lil Wayne fan sites, "Bedrock" was finally released on November 14, 2009. It was apparently originally titled "Girl You Know" (the fan sites to which the single was leaked titled it "Bedrock/Girl You Know") and the chorus was sung by Omarion and Lil Wayne's verse was different, but due to Omarion's departure from Young Money, he was replaced by Lloyd. The final version of the song was released on December 21, 2009 on the complete We Are Young Money album; the song was originally planned to be released as the third official single off the album, however due to popular demand by fans it was released as the second single.
The music video, directed by Dayo and Lil Wayne, is a parody of The Real World called Young Money World; the video features no large plot but rather displays the members of Young Money hanging out at the house and having fun. Minaj is shown typing on a computer while laying on her bed, relaxing and enjoying a drink by the pool, setting up the camera in the confessional, and doing her hair in the bathroom. She raps her verse in the bathroom, singing her lines into the hair straightener. During this portion, Drake is banging on the door, making it clear that she's taking too much time in the bathroom. As she finishes her verse, she jokingly acts furious when she opens to the door to talk to him, then making an over-dramatic face of shock and begins to walk off—but not without one last big smile from Drake.
