Nicki Minaj – “Pills N Potions” [Video]


Nicki Minaj has her sights set on a major summer takeover. After a few major chess moves, the super star follows up by debuting a proper visual for “Pills N Potions.”

Nicki commissioned “Blurred Lines” director Diane Martel to communicate the emotional record on screen. As a result, the YMCMB Barbie stars alongside her video love interest, The Game, who’s apparently in deep water.

The rapper’s heartfelt lyrics peg some of those closest to her as disloyal, ungrateful, and the like. These are just her thoughts, of course, and this is shown in the treatment through emotive colors and abstract visual effects. For example, the tears are digital and have a metallic, liquid-like look that’s reminiscent of what’s seen in Busta Rhymes and Janet Jackson’s “What’s It Gonna Be.”

Peep the official video for “Pills N Potions” from Nicki Minaj’s upcoming album, The Pink Print below. Share your thoughts in the comments.
