The latest video from Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded album is due today. Minaj returned to Twitter on Tuesday, after taking a few days off, out of frustration and she returned just in time to announce the premiere of her “Starships” video which will debut on MTV at 7:56p.m. on Thursday.
“Starships,” the lead single from Roman Reloaded peaked at #5 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart a few weeks back, and its remained on the list for nine weeks already. We first saw photos from the video set in Hawaii a few weeks back, showing Minaj on the beach sporting a revealing, neon pink bikini with long green hair. After rolling out her “Beez in the Trap” clip with 2 Chainz, she’s ready to treat fans to “Starships,’ telling the U.K.’s Capital FM, “It may be too saucy for TV.”
For “Beez in the Trap,” which Nicki dubbed her ‘hood video,’ she hit the strip club with 2 Chainz. “When I was doing my mixtapes, I would perform in strip clubs, I would perform in clubs and it was just like some of my most die-hard fans would be in these places,” Nicki told MTV News. “I wanted to kinda like honor them — kinda honor all my girls in the club and just say thank you for the support.”
