Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj know it takes work to look this good, and now they’re showing off their bootylicious moves at the gym in the pop star’s newest video “Side to Side” featuring Minaj.
Wearing a hat that reads “ICON,” Grande leads the charge in spin class, as she and her backup dancers turned group exercise students all peddle to the beat, performing a seated dance of sorts. Riding bikes is a cheeky nod to the reason Grande is “walking side-to-side” in her song. Minaj shows up in an electric blue sauna, against which her red lingerie and Grande’s hot pink bathing suit pop. “I’m the queen of rap/ Ariana run pop,” Minaj raps.
When all is said and done, the women hit the shower room for a Bahamian-inspired moment that arises musically and visually.
The two artists performed the track last night (August 28) at the MTV Video Music Awards with similar visuals. The single is the latest from Grande’s Dangerous Woman to get a visual treatment.
