Nicki Minaj Butts In With “Anaconda” Music Video — See the Bootylicious Vid! (VIDEO)
Forget the Oscar race — we already have this year's crowning cinematic achievement: Nicki Minaj's new music video for her single "Anaconda."
The visuals double down on the song's steamy lyrics, so if you watch the video below, know that it's probably NSFW. Unless, of course, your supervisor doesn't mind the sight of dozens of jiggling butts.
Yes, twerking abounds in the nearly-5-minute video, which shows the 31-year-old MC shaking her assets in a jungle exterior, a jungle bar, and a literal jungle gym.
Oh, and there are gratuitous closeups of the products Nicki plugs: Myx moscato and the Beats Pink Pill speaker. (Paradoxically, she brags about her "big, fat ass" but also has a bottle of weight-loss promoting MateFit Tea. Maybe she doesn't want her butt too big!)
Even if the constant ass-jiggling wears you out, stick around to the end of the video for a cameo by Drake, who stares in awe at Nicki's butt as she gives him a lap dance — and, at one point, he rubs his hand between his legs. (He must have had an itch.)
The single is the second release off the Trinidadian rapper's forthcoming third studio album, The Pinkprint, following "Pills n Potions." Only time will tell what twerk-friendly tracks will follow.
What do you think of Nicki's "Anaconda" video? Are you loving Nicki's myriad talents as much as Drake seems to? Or are you unswayed? Let us know in the comments below.
