Gone are the pink wigs and speed raps about starships. In Nicki Minaj’s new video for her latest single, “Pills n Potions” the rapper is showing off her coping skills.
The clip off her upcoming album, The Pink Print, features Minaj singing “I’m angry, but I still love you,” as shots of bunny rabbit Pez machines send out a few pills that might help her get through the pain.
Bunnies seem to be a running theme with Minaj rocking the ears and another bunny raising the roof in appreciation of Minaj’s words before taking time for a smoke break.
Later, Minaj is seen pouring out her tears, which look like pieces of tinfoil.
Don’t miss a cameo from The Game, who’s shirtless throughout. Natch.
In the last few months, Minaj has promised she’s going back to her rougher roots, releasing songs like “Lookin’ Ass N***a,” “Yasss Bish!” and “Chi-Raq” and swearing,that fans will be more surprised by her subtlety this time around.
“I went so far to the other side that there’s only one place to go from there,” Minaj told MTV. “You can either continue doing costumes or you can just say, ‘Hey, guess what? This will shock them even more. Doing absolutely nothing will shock them even more.'”
