A sneak peek of Nicki Minaj‘s new video for ‘Pills N Potions’ last week unveiled a visual filled with a self-dispensing Pez rabbit, shots of the Game‘s tattoed frame and silver animated tears running down the YMCMB rapper’s face. Now, the complete Diane Martel-directed video arrives and as the snippet conveyed, it’s full of color and quirkiness.
Nicki gets plenty of solo camera time and even gets close with her co-star the Game, who plays her love interest. While the two are not necessarily acting out a story, the body language says it all — there’s problems in the relationship just like the song details. The trippy visuals (which add to the “pills and potions” lyrics) include a car that turns into colorful ooze, liquid mercury coming out of Nicki’s eyes and bunnies bopping to the beat.
There’s also more than a few eye-catching moments of the Queens, N.Y.-bred MC. She sings to the camera while wearing an oversized feather coat and gladiator heels in one shot and goes topless with tape covering her breasts in another — a visual we’re all too familiar with.
Produced by Dr. Luke and co-written by Ester Dean, ‘Pills N Potions’ is the lead single off Nicki’s upcoming third LP, ‘The Pink Print.’
