Nelly decided to keep it simple for the visuals to “Get Like Me.” Accompanied by Pharrell and “Twerk It” queen Nicki Minaj, Nelly hits us with major swag throughout the white and black video. Never taking his shades off once, the St. Louis rapper definitely followed up on his promise to release an “energetic” video.
Directed by Collin Tilley, the video features beautiful ladies, hot kicks and of course plenty of bottles. What else could you ask for?
Although the track originally just featured Pharrell, Nelly made a good choice by adding the queen Barbie on the track. “Yo I think Nicki might be dope on this,” he told MTV News. “We made it happen and I was right. She killed it!”
Nicki definitely adds major energy to the video as she kicks off her red bottoms and feeds us some sick bars. She also drops it low and gets her “eagle on” mid verse. “Get Like Me” is Nelly’s second single from his upcoming album M.O. due September 30.
