Five Reasons to Watch Nicki Minaj’s ‘Moment 4 Life’ Video
Young Money’s finest Nicki Minaj and Drake are having an exhilarating ride to the top. Both artists were sought after way before they released their debuts and would find themselves teaming with music elite early in their careers. Now, after lending vocals to each other’s platinum-selling projects, the pair teamed up in December to shoot the video for Minaj’s latest single ‘Moment 4 Life.’ Always thought the pair made a cute couple? Here’s five reasons to watch the latest offering from hip-hop’s most popular newcomers:
5. Find Out Who Wore it Best
During her appearance on E!’s ‘Fashion Police,’ Minaj revealed that she rocked Fergie’s New Year’s dress — a strapless studded minidress — in the ‘Moment 4 Life’ video. She defended Fergie against the ‘Fashion Police’ panel, who all agreed the dress was a disaster, but wanted it noted that she donned the dress two weeks before the Black Eyed Peas singer wore it on Dick Clark’s ‘New Year’s Rockin’ Eve’ show.
4. Is There Chemistry?
They’ve joked around about marrying each other and even rhymed about a possible romance, but the question remains: Would it work? Drake and Rihanna — who dated briefly in 2009 — heated up the camera lens when they got close in the video for ‘What’s My Name?’ Now it’s Nicki’s turn to get cozy with her labelmate.
3. Introducing … Martha Zolanski.
We’ve all heard the British accent that Nicki recently attributed to her alter ego Martha Zolanski — Roman’s mother. Minaj confirmed that Martha would pop up in the video while chatting with Ellen DeGeneres last month, but the rapper wouldn’t elaborate. Maybe Rosa, Nicki’s newest addition to her alter ego family, will make an appearance in her next video.
2. The Kiss
We’ve already debated whether or not Minaj and Drake have chemistry, the question still remains: Will they or won’t they? Fans will have to watch the video to see if the pair really locks lips. Rihanna and Drake kept it pretty PG in the ‘What’s My Name’ vid, with the snuggling and cuddling, but Minaj and Drizzy take it to another level … or so we think.
1. The Wedding
Finally they made it official … well, not really. After much talk and buzz, Nicki and Drake make it down the aisle in Nicki’s “fairy tales really do come true”-themed video. Will there be a honeymoon? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
