When Nicki Minaj invited Cassie Ventura to join her in her new video she probably thought it would be fun working with her friend.
What she might not have expected is that the sultry R & B singer would steal the show in her high cut white swimsuit.
Still, it certainly looked as if the girls were having fun as they filmed the video for The Boys.
The bold 29-year-old delivers a nonsensical, candy-coated daydream of a video where the pair ask in the chorus ‘why the boys are always spending all their money on love?’
The frivolous clip, directed by Colin Tilley, is set in a technicolor, cartoon-style street, barbershop, and polka-dot dream world where the two ladies gratuitously flaunt their enviable curves.
The video opens with a newspaper headline ‘Barber shop burns down after “freak” flame thrower accident.’
Later on, Nicki is clearly the culprit as she is seen excitedly brandishing a flame thrower while wearing a blonde bombshell wig with a studded denim bralet with a ladylike full skirt.
The outlandish pop star is first seen wearing a cotton candy-coloured bouffant wig with an eye-opening neon bralet while suggestively bouncing on a yoga ball.
The Superbass singer later pretends to have her long pink wig blow-dried by a busty blonde while clad in a green-and-pink printed bodysuit, lavender tights, and purple pumps.
‘Here it is barbz!!!!!!! #TheBoysVideo’ Minaj tweeted to her 14.7 million followers.
According to her Twitter, Nicki’s favourite part of shooting the video was doing ‘squats on the ball’ and in between takes she sucked on a tongue-staining ‘blue Jolly Rancher.’
The petite rapper will embark on her ‘Apart of Roman Released European Tour’ starting October 21 in Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena and ending December 8 at Perth Arena in Australia.
