Stereogums writer Tom Briehan found the lyrics and Minaj's input as "bland" and "character-free". "The Night is Still Young" is written by Minaj, Ester Dean, Lukasz Gottwald, Donnie Lewis, Theron Thomas and Henry Walter, with additional production by Gottwald and Cirkut. Lyrically, the song discusses the theme of partying and having fun; the verses involve around a routine night out at a club. Pink Friday [VINYL] Spofify
