SEASON 2 | EPISODE 14
Special Guest MC: Edu
Hey Nicki, Hey Nicki
Whatever your thoughts might be surrounding the pop icon known as Nicki Minaj, one thing is undeniable - The woman knows how to do a music video!
The new video for “The Boys” is certainly explicit both sonically and visually. You might feel like you’ve been on an acid trip while exploring the bigtop at the local circus & that’s the point. A well crafted music video can save a song from slipping out of the public consciousness and into obscurity. As long as Nicki and her team keep pumping out these bizarre gems, we don’t think she’ll be fading anytime soon.
To see what we’re talking about peep this video for yourself
