Young Money’s Nicki Minaj helped Busta Rhymes turn up his “Twerk It” anthem a notch by appearing in the fellow Cash Money member’s accompanying music video.
Busta relies on Director X behind the lens and a slew of guest cameos for his new visual.
Watch now the world premiere of Busta Rhymes’ music video for his hot collaboration with Nicki Minaj, “Twerk It”. This is actually the official remix of Busta’s latest single off his upcoming tenth studio album, whose release date and title are still a mystery. However, Busta Rhymes never actually promoted the original version of “Twerk It” (sans Nicki Minaj) or sent it to radios, so this ‘remix’ version will be for almost everybody the first version to be heard. Nicki adds new excitement to the dance-hall-infused urban track, so Busta got it right asking the “High School” star to guest on the ‘remix’. As for the music video for new ‘twerk’ anthem, it was directed by Director X and filmed in Flatbush, Brooklyn last month. The clip features cameos by DJ Khaled and Pharrell (producer of the song). The MV is full of club scenes where girls can’t help but twerk to the infectious beat, couples grinding like it’s mandatory, ‘Commander’ Busta Busta spitting his verses, and Her Minajesty sporting super tight clothes enticing the camera.

The buzzing song sizzled across the Internet and premiered online in early June.
Just a few days ago we found out Busta Rhymes and Nicki Minaj shot a video for the official remix of Busta’s latest single ‘Twerk It’ and tonight Hot 97’s Funk Flex started his show off with the premiere of the audio. Nicki’s verse on this might be exactly what the song needed to blow up. Production comes from Pharrell. The video, which is being directed by Director X, was shot over in Flatbush, Brooklyn. DJ Khaled was also spotted on set so don’t be surprised to see him make a cameo. (Direct Lyrics)

In May, Busta explained why he had not yet locked in a collabo with labelmates like Nicki Minaj and Drake.
“Um . . . and you haven’t heard anything with me and Nicki. “Roman’s Revenge (Remix),” that was something I did on my own. It wasn’t like an official remix, so technically, we haven’t gone in to do a record neither. So, Drake and Nicki, we haven’t gone in, no. … It usually happens when the times are right or when the idea is right. … We’ve talked before. I’ve had several conversations about doing records with Drake, we’ve actually been in the studio trying to f*ck around. Same with Nicki. It just . . . when we start an idea, sometimes you get distracted. The stars just hasn’t aligned yet for that to actually happen. I think also, schedule. They’ve been shaking consistently for the last two, three years, putting out an album a year.” (Rolling Stone)
