Nicki Minaj has released a new music video for her song “Super Freaky Girl.” As we’ve come to expect from the rapper, the clip is colorful and risqué, with imagery inspired by Barbie dolls. The video even features a Ken character.
Nicki Minaj Releases “Super Freaky Girl” Video
The video starts with Minaj’s name, followed by a credit for actor Alexander Ludwig as Ken. The rapper sports pink hair in the clip, along with some vibrant outfits. In one scene, she rocks a bikini covered in a cherry pattern while sitting on the counter in a bright pink kitchen.
In another shot, Minaj poses in a doll box with her name on it, wearing an ’80s-inspired hairdo and holding a guitar like a rock star. It’s an appropriate look, considering “Super Freaky Girl” samples the iconic ’80s tune “Super Freak” by Rick James.
The video also features a dance scene, in which Minaj wears a pink and blue striped dress while backup dancers bust a move around her in their own colorful outfits. Toward the end of the clip, Minaj and her Ken cook on a barbecue grill in their yard.
Despite the bright visuals, there’s a dangerous edge to the music video, as Minaj wields a knife and eventually sets fire to both Ken and their house. But the flames are pink, of course. What else would you expect?
