"Monster" is a song by American hip hop recording artist Kanye West, released as the third single from his fifth studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010). The track features rappers Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, and singer Justin Vernon of indie folk group Bon Iver. All five credited performers have writing credits on the posse cut, with the production handled by West and Mike Dean. Lyrically the song expresses often disturbing, horror film influenced concepts, with some comparing the track's eerie aesthetic to the Michael Jackson song "Thriller." The song contains an atmospheric, drum-heavy composition, notable for featuring no samples.
Adele sang Nicki Minaj's verse of the song during a "Carpool Karaoke" segment with James Corden on The Late Late Show with James Corden that aired on January 13, 2016. Following the performance, the original version of the song re-entered the UK and US iTunes charts. The following day, Nicki Minaj took to Instagram to praise Adele for her performance.
