Young Money star Nicki Minaj kept her word by releasing the super sultry "Starships" music video this week, showing off a hot pink bikini.
The rapper's new music video officially premiered online Thursday (April 26).
Nicki Minaj's video for 'Starships' is essentially the live action equivalent of the Sports Illustrated annual Swimsuit Issue. We see the buxom rapper cavorting around in a variety of bathing suits. Her body is banging, so she is not afraid to show it off. More power to her. The video is certainly a signpost of summer, and not just because of Minaj's skimpy attire, as the singer splashes around in the ocean in the opening segment. She is wearing a pink (no surprise there!) bikini, showing off that curvy and enviable figure of hers. Her bootay is in full view, several times. At first, while Miss Minaj is wearing a bright yellow wig, her girls are big, bouncy and beautiful in her "pinkini," if you will. (Pop Crush)
Earlier this week, Minaj hinted at the video's release date.
After several delays, Nicki Minaj has finally narrowed down a date for her "Starships" video. The feel-good clip, directed by Anthony Mandler, is expected to premiere this week. "It's officially done today," Nicki told KISS FM in the U.K. "We just gotta now turn it in and then the networks will look and see if they have to take anything out. They give me such a hard time with my videos. They really do. ... But hopefully Tuesday, Wednesday at the latest." (Rap-Up)
Last month, the platinum-selling rapper called the music video one of her best to date.
"I'm freaking out because the video is taking way too long," Nicki said in an interview. "When it comes out it's going to be very, very saucy and very exciting, and it's going to be lots of fun and probably going to be my best one yet. ... I went out to Hawaii and I met a lot of beautiful Hawaiian men that were so amazing -- I just didn't want to leave. We shot the video on the beach, we shot the video in the mountains. It was just dope, the scenery was amazing." (Capital FM)
Around mid-March, photos of a bikini-laced Minaj on the beach began circulating online.
Nicki Minaj was parading her curvaceous figure when filming a music video for her latest single "Starships". The female rapper was snapped on the set wearing a pink bathing suit which has a sheer drape on the front. Rocking neon-green hair, she finished off her sexy look with a pair of matching heels. Minaj filmed the music video in Hawaii. The femcee recently posted on Twitter a picture of four shirtless male extras wearing pink tribal-inspired ensembles and bowler hats. "Beautiful. Can't wait 2get on set. Dem male modelz iz poppinton #starshipsvideo>," she excitedly tweeted. (Ace Showbiz)
