I was surprised to discover today that the video for this track is out. This is one of my favorite songs from Nicki Minaj’s album Pink Friday. It has taken me ages to accept the fact that Nicki can sing in addition to being a rapper. I think she has a great voice considering the fact that rapping is her forte.
The first shot of the video is a page off a fairytale and the first sentence really amused me:
Once upon a time there lived a king named Nicki.
That’s Nicki for you, she’s so weird you cannot help but love her.
The storyline is based on the Cinderella story where Nicki’s fairy godmother pays her a visit and helps her nab her prince, the ever gorgeous Drake.
Nicki Minaj has the weirdest facial expressions, I must try them out in the next pictures I take.
She is wearing the coolest blue pantyhose, I must look for a pair like those. Her make up in this video is excellent! If barbie was what they were going for, they hit the nail on the head.
Drake looks very pretty in this video, his hair has grown out a bit, which makes you just want to ruffle his head and play with his hair.
All these rumors which keep flying around about Drake and Nicki are definitely just to push sales. They have absolutely zero chemistry in this video. They cannot even give each other steamy looks as they gaze into each others eyes. Drake puckering up in readiness to give Nicki Minaj a wet one just seems weird and off.
Despite all the hateration, I appreciate the fact that this is a very cool video that definitely does the song justice 🙂
