Nicki Minaj takes her colorful escapde to new heights in the music video for her latest offering “The Boys” featuring Bad Boy singer-model Cassie. In the Colin Tilley-directed clip, Minaj and Cassie go through several custom changes, selling their sexiness.
“The Boys” serves as the first single from Minaj’s upcoming effort Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up, a revamp of her sophomore album, which will include a separate disc with new tracks.
“We still have singles to roll out on that album … for instance, ‘Va Va Voom’ was [just] added into rotation in the U.K., so I can’t treat it like my stepchild just yet,” Nicki told MTV News about the re-release. “But there’s new kids on the way, so I kind of wanted to be fair to the old songs and be fair to the new songs.”
She continued: “It’s a different feel, so I knew I had to put it on a separate disc, the new songs, but it wasn’t an entire new thought and new body of work,” she added. “Because I like to give a lot of music, and so that’s why I didn’t want to do a whole new project. Because then I would feel like it would be judged as a brand-new thing, and then I would need to add way more songs.”
