"Roman Reloaded" is a song by Nicki Minaj, serving as the second promotional single off her sophomore studio album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, released on April 2, 2012. The promotional single was exclusively released to iTunes on February 24, 2012. It features guest vocals from label-mate Lil Wayne. It was originally planned to be the lead urban single from Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded on March 6, 2012 but was changed to Minaj's song featuring Chris Brown, "Right by My Side".

Many praised the hardness and edgy-ness of the track (some even saying it should be featured in Kill Bill 3) and many also praised Minaj's verses in the song. Many, however, did not enjoy Wayne's frantic verse at the end (heavy breathing and this line, "Well that's because my bitch is Nina Ross, and she / BANG BANG BANG..."). Minaj references the show Basketball Wives ("More knots than Eric from Basketball Wives (ya dig?)"), her upcoming voice part in Ice Age 4 ("I'm up in L.A. at the Ice Age taping), and even Apple ("Bite me, Apple sign"). The lyric,"hottest MC's / top five" references the fact that Minaj is highly regarded as the hottest female MC of the decade, and potentially of all time.

Released as the third promotional or "buzz" single from Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, it managed to chart in the lower regions of the US Billboard Hot 100 and the UK Singles Chart, while reaching the top 40 of the UK R&B Chart. did a review of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded and gave each song a "Roman Rating".
