Nicki Minaj is a glamazon in her “Freedom” video.
By now, you probably know that Nicki Minaj‘s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded — The Re-Up (which dropped yesterday!) includes a whopping seven brand-new songs, and while it may be to early to call it, we kinda think Nicki’s poignant mid-tempo jam “Freedom” is our new favorite. And did we mention the single’s official video drops today? Because if you thought Nicki looked UNREAL performing “Freedom” at the 2012 American Music Awards, then you’re really gonna flip for the ensembles she’s rocking here.
Watch Nicki Minaj’s “Freedom” video after the jump.
Directed by Colin Tilley, “Freedom” doesn’t have much of a plot line, but that’s not such a big deal — we’re instead encouraged to gawk at insanely glam shots of Nicki in haute couture and sporting stunning hair made even more stunning by an extremely effective wind machine. Nicki strikes a series of poses against different backdrops (we’re partial to the boat wreckage, ourselves), and although it’s just beautiful scenery, you can tell by Nicki’s smize that she’s definitely in the process of unleashing herself from the shackles that bind! What those specific shackles are, we can’t be sure, but we ARE happy to give a hearty “Mazels!” to Nicki anyway. It can’t be easy getting emancipated while you’re all bound up in couture! Just guessing.
