Young Money’s Nicki Minaj appears unfazed by her new “Anaconda” song leaking a few days ago and has now released a sizzling music video teaser this week. #anothertease
Although only 15 seconds in length, Minaj leaves little to the imagination on what her video will showcase.
“Check out the WORLD PREMIERE video snippet of Anaconda. Now on iTunes!!! #AnacondaOniTunes Official Mastered VERSION,” Nicki captioned to her teaser video late August 3. (Nicki Minaj’s Instagram)
According to reports, the track uses a sample from 90’s hip-hop classic “Baby Got Back.”
From what can be heard on the leak, Polow and Da Internz have sampled Sir Mix-A-Lot‘s “Baby Got Back,” which is only fitting seeing Nicki’s pose on the “Anaconda” cover. The song so far has used snippets from the original hit, including “My anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns hun” and the voice clip “oh my God, Becky, look at her butt.” (XXL Mag)
Nicki broke the news about the song’s delayed release last month.
“My darlingz, I’ve pushed the release of Anaconda to next week, Monday 8/4. I promise you will understand why before the week is out. Loveeeeeeee uuuuuu,” Minaj captioned to a photo of herself July 27. (Nicki Minaj’s Instagram)
Last month, Minaj resorted to dealing with some critics going after her neck over a steamy “Anaconda” single cover art reveal.
The rap diva took to Instagram to post a series of photos of models with their butts to the camera to illustrate the double standards in beauty. She wrote “acceptable” next to racy images of Kate Upton and Nina Agdal posing in swimsuits. “Angelic. Acceptable. Lol,” she said of a Sports Illustrated cover with Agdal, Lily Aldridge, and Chrissy Teigen. To make her point, she then reposted her “Anaconda” cover art, which shows her squatting down in a G-string. She captioned the risqué photo “UNACCEPTABLE.” (Rap-Up)
