Both music videos feature the ‘Super Bass’ raptress rocking a series of bizarre outfits, including diamond-embroidered lingerie and a Marie Antoinette-styled gown.
As promised, Nicki Minaj premiered the music videos for her latest singles, “Chun-Li” and “Barbie Tingz”, on Friday, May 4. While Steven Klein served behind the lens for “Chun-Li” music video, Giovanni Bianco handled the directing duties for “Barbie Tingz” music video.
The visuals for “Chun-Li” begins with two men dressed in Chinese police uniform entering a room as Nicki says in voiceover, “I knew you’d come. Somehow I just knew you’d find me. Not knowing where I was or when I was coming back, sent you crazy. I kept my spies on you though. I didn’t like what they reported back. Thought you were smarter than that.”
“You had to have known this was strategically designed architecture. Architecture that only I have the pinkprint for. Nevertheless, you took the bait,” she continues before the scene changes to show the female emcee donning a series of bizarre outfits, including diamond-embroidered lingerie. The clip also features scenes of Nicki fighting and dancing her way through a prison camp.
Meanwhile, the music video for “Barbie Tingz” is more lighthearted as it is set against a white background. Similar to “Chun-Li” video, it features the “Anaconda” hitmaker sporting an array of wild outfits, from a flouncy Marilyn Monroe dress to a Marie Antoinette-styled gown.
Both tracks will be included on her forthcoming album, which still doesn’t have a title or a release date. In an interview with Zane Lowe of Beats 1 last month, she called the effort “the best album I’ve ever created in my life.”
“I needed to focus and I just didn’t know, you know, I wanted to make sure I was writing something that was meaningful to me and that would inspire and captivate my audience,” she said. “But most importantly, I wanted to have again. I didn’t want to see anything.”
