Young Money's Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne's much-anticipated "High School" music video has finally premiered online and shows the two music stars flaunting their chemistry.

After weeks of speculation and teaser behind-the-scenes footage, the steamy visual premiered online Tuesday (April 2).

Hit or miss, Young Money keeps the machine moving forward. This time, YMCMB delivers a double to left field - in my eyes at least - with the visual for "High School" featuring Nicki Minaj coupled with Lil Wayne. I noted many moons ago the song's simplicity and throwback feel to both Wayne and Nicki of years past was "High School's" most endearing quality. (Smoking Section)

The movie-like setting features Weezy and Nicki all over each other in numerous scenes.

This is a pretty good one, though, all things considered: The song, with assistance from Lil Wayne, is sultry and provocative, and now with a visual component it's even more dynamic: Minaj struts and flaunts in a lot of sexy swimsuits, makes out with Wayne in a bedroom, and appears to be a jewel thief, or something? Because she and Weezy escape via helicopter with some diamonds at the end of the video? Whatever. It's not totally clear. Also, it doesn't totally matter. Narrative matters much less here than her curves and weaves. Even though the clip was shot before his seizure scare, it's still nice to see Weezy in typically lecherous form, up to his old tricks. Looks like it's business as usual -- for now. (Idolator)

Initial plans were for the music video to premiere shortly before 11 AM EST.

Nicki Minaj is going back to school. The "American Idol" judge and Young Money first lady will sit down for an interview with MTV on Tuesday (April 2) when she debuts her new collaboration with Lil Wayne, "High School." The video will premiere at 10:53 a.m. ET, and afterward Minaj will sit down for an exclusive interview with MTV News during "MTV First: Nicki Minaj" on The single from her Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded - The Re-Up album will also roll out across MTV's 300-plus digital properties across the globe.

The steamy visual's teaser surfaced across the Internet last week.

Big things are happening for Nicki Minaj! A teaser clip for her highly anticipated music video for the song "High School" has released before its official release on April 2. The song, a collaboration with her friend Lil Wayne, has lyrics like, "They holler at me but its you/ You, this ain't high school/ Me and my crew, we can slide through/ Give it to you whenever you want." The video will feature Nicki and Lil Wayne in a large mansion and hanging by the pool, according to MTV. Minaj's video received undesired attention recently when Lil Wayne suffered a seizure while at the shoot. Luckily, the rapper was able to make a full recovery, despite reports otherwise.
