Nicki Minaj Surprises Us In New Music Video

June 16, 2014

Earlier this week Nicki Minaj dropped her newest video ‘Pills and Potions’- the newest single from her upcoming album ‘The Pink Print’.


The song is somewhat of slow ballad, where Nicki sings and raps about love, anger, and pills. The slower tempo of the song definitely allows the listener to focus on Nicki’s vocals and shows us a softer side of Nicki.

“Pills and potions, we’re overdosing / I’m angry but I still love you.”

The video was exactly what we expected it would be- weird. It wouldn’t be a Nicki Minaj video without some extra charisma, now would it? Even though the song itself has a very sentimental tone, Nicki still made sure to spice up the video!

You can watch it for yourself here:

From bunny ears, to pasties, to fur Nicki looked absolutely flawless in the entire music video. We even got to see a shirtless cameo of rapper The Game! The video also included lots of bunnies (I warned you it was going to be weird), prescription pills, and a subtle advertisement for Beats’ new portable speaker- Beats Pill XL.

While we may have expected a less intense music video for such a touching song, I think we have to remember that Nicki has always been different, and it’s that uniqueness about her that we all love.

Nonetheless, the music video correlates really well with the song and no matter what this song is going to be a HUGE hit this summer!

We can’t wait to see what else Nicki has up her sleeve for her upcoming album ‘The Pink Print’ (no concrete release date has been announced yet).
