Is anyone else as obsessed as we are with Nicki Minaj’s career transition? A couple of years ago, the rapper was doing sugary-sweet songs like “Super Bass,” rocking crazy makeup and colorful wigs. Fast forward to 2014, and Nicki looks stunning in a more understated beauty look, while going back to her roots with deep rhymes like those on newest single, “Pills N Potions.” And today she shared a sneak peek at the tune’s video!
The hip hop star stopped by Good Morning America this week to offer up a snippet of the dramatic video, and boy, is it a treat! In the first half, Nicki’s sports a new, toned-down look with natural hair and makeup — all the while showing off those dramatic acting skills. (Anyone see her in The Other Woman?) But seriously, she’s never looked better.
Then things take a twisted turn around halfway through, when a bunny Pez dispenser shows up a pops out some “pills” that make things a little trippy — i.e. dancing rabbits, Nicki’s metallic tears. Though, on a sexy note, The Game pops up shirtless here, as well, taking the role of her love interest. Hawt!
Nicki also took the time on the morning show to explain her new musical route, saying that she’s attempting to “marry my old energy with a new sound, and I think ‘Pills N Potions’ does that.”
We can’t wait to see more of the new chapter in Ms. Minaj’s career!
