Nicki Minaj Teams With Nokia to Illuminate Times Square, Plus VideoSaturday, April 07, 2012
During the event, which saw tens of thousands of people filling Times Square, Nicki Minaj performed a medley of her hit songs. After her set, some of the world's leading visual artists turned the prominent building into a living, breathing entity using cutting-edge CGI technology with 60ft waves appearing to cascade down the building. Nine of Times Square's famous electronic screens showed the reaction from the event-goers.
"When Nokia came to me with the idea to make a building come alive and to perform in Times Square in front of my fans to celebrate the launch of the Nokia Lumia 900 there was only ever one answer," says Minaj.
She adds: "Performing in my home town of NYC the same week as the release of my new album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded is amazing and it really is a dream come true."
The entire show was filmed as part of Minaj's new music video for the "Starships" remix.
