Nicki Minaj is full of surprises. Last week her video “Beauty & A Beat” with Justin Bieber leaked and went on to break VEVO’s record for the most views in 24 hours. Today she decided to release her music video for “The Boys”and warns everyone “Don’t go against Nicki, impossible.”
The video begins with a woman reading a newspaper with the headlines “Barber Shop Burns Down After ‘Freak’ Flame-Thrower Accident.” We soon learn Nicki is one not to mess with.
The Colin Tilley directed clip opens with two dead men in a barber shop. Coincidence? We think not.
Nicki’s many wigs change throughout the video as she takes on new personalities. From a short rainbow look to long blonde locks dip dyed with blue and a cotton candy pink, she looks fierce sporting a pink bikini, neon yellow spandex and jean jacket with a blue tutu like skirt.
Alongside some suggestive dance moves with Cassie the girls rap about their frustrations with guys.
“The boys are all spending their money on love,” Cassie sings.
Meanwhile, Nicki shows off her rapid fire raps in the barber shop right after she’s shown holding a flamethrower. Surrounded by flames it’s not too hard to solve the crime in this video.
Nicki will release Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up on November 19.
