Video: Nicki Minaj – ‘Your Love’

Nicki Minaj

Love is a battlefield in Nicki Minaj’s red-hot video for “Your Love,” the No. 1 rap song in the country from her debut album, due November 23. In her latest role, the Harajuku Barbie stars as a samurai-in-training, who falls in love with her master while a jealous peer fights for his affection. Will love conquer all?

    I’m a Lil Kim fan 1st and foremost….not a huge Nicki fan, but I’m happy at least 1 female rapper is out in the spotlight! This song is trash and that’s probably y I haven’t fully embraced her….she doesn’t wow me (besides the dramatics)!

    I got more gossip over at IAmFlashdance.blogspot.com

    I like the video it was good it was worth the wait I wish nothing but success for her and the whole young money crew. The only part I hate in the video was the ending when he yell to the sky. It was so predictable and funny but the video was good. It made not been her single she wanted to put out I guess it need to come out and show her softer side to show she a girl with feeling. Idk what the hell im talking about Im just ranting. Lil kim had her time she ran the late 90s and early 00s but its nicki time she need to accepted it. Yall now im speaking truth regardless how nicki got where she at. The fact she is there now. Let the girl eat and get full.

    This song is # 18 Right On Billboard Hot 100?
    This song is # 1 Right On Billboard Rap Charts?

    Yet she produces this cheap recession friendly video. It was already a hit why didn’t they spend time and money on the video? I’m sure this video was 1/4 of the budget for massive attack.

  14. cool

    i like it was nice and simple, over doing is not the answer to make a good video but the end when he was suppose act sad the acting was horrible

  33. A Realist

    First of all, I liked the video and I like the song.

    Second of all, you people saying she copied someone else’s video, get real, boo. You’re the same people who said she copied Rihanna just cause the video was in the desert. When Mariah Carey, BEP, Missy Elliott, and countless others have shot their video in the desert. Get real. She is not copying all those people. It’s just a location. “OOp someone shot a video in the club, they’re obvious copying _______” 390243804324 people have shot music videos in the club. Stfu!

    [Reply]

  34. A Realist

    And dead at the idiot who said she copied Beyonce cause she wore a trench coat. LMFAO. Everyone knows Beyonce is the #1 copycat, hun. Ooop ZZ Top wore trench coats in one of their videos!

  35. young tay

    Nikki is the illest. Video remains me of dem ol hip hop videos when joint were creative. you can tell she’s under new management and her direction is changing. Can’t have Wocka moms as your manager and make smart moves (yeah that’s a diss). ONE

    [Reply]

  36. #Thatisall

    @Shaytan Maybe because it was directed by the same director Hype Williams. Call on me and check on it were all directed by Hype Williams.

    [Reply]

  37. Need i say more

    Nicki Minaj looks 20 times better than that plastic faced cabbage doll. Lil Kim is washed up, Done, finished!!!. Her second song is already a top 10 hit without a feature so shes definately proved she can stand alone. Nicki aint going anywhere anytime soon so get used to it Haters.

    The video was simple and good. HATERS need to shut your mouth. A Realist was right everybody has done the same location everyonce and a while. Plus, the directors choose how things are so be quiet.

  41. lillt

    This song is not a single off of her debut album and after Massive Attack flop, I knew the budget for this video would be limited.

    [Reply]

  42. Laughing at u lames

    Idk what people expected the video to be like. It goes with the song perfectly. Definately far from wack. If u lames listened to the lyrics of the song then u would get it but u simpled minded dumbasses wouldnt know greatness if it slapped u in the face. Nicki is killin u Haters time and time again while u stay on your day job getting minimum wage. Nuff said.

    I respect someone’s hustle, dreams, and ambition more than anything! I really dont see how you can hate on Nicki!

  44. Why U mad?

    This video will just about be #1 on every music countdown on tv whether u haters like it or not. i always say this “If you dont have Haters then your doing something wrong”. I LOVE HATERS!!!!!

    [Reply]

  45. Will

    @lillt Actually this is a big budget video. Hype Williams directed it and everyone knows he charges a lot for videos.

    And this is the First Official single off her debut album. Get your facts right please before u comment. Thxbye!

  46. TeamJanet

    Dumb Kids – Its not about location.. Its about the entire video is a rip of Janet Jackson – No Matter Who Produced It. The Nails, The Clothing, The Bridge Etc.. Who Cares About Location.. @ The Lil Kim comments – Kim is as real as Nicki’s ass

    Kim has been doing voices for years.. Kim has been making the barbie faces for years.. Do your research.. Google How Many Licks, Google La Bella Mafia, Google Notorious Kim

    Kim started this shit and she will finish this shit! Besides the song is a sample! The beat is not orginal and the hook isnt either.. Its a hit because the Pop kids can relate to it (because its all been done before)

    Tell Nicki to sit her Blue Clues Rap Ass Down!

  50. Your the illest

    This is such a good video definately way better than massive attack. The video goes with the song perfectly. The whole Geisha, samurai concept is exactly Nicki Minaj forte. I give this video a 8 out of 10

    and @TeamJanet We Dont Give 2 shits. Where is Lil Kim Now? Where is her new album? What happened to her Face??? Shes off the map now. STAY MAD!!!

  51. #DEAD

    @Shaytan Funny how u are on this site everyday hating. Why dont u get a job lol.

    [Reply]

  52. BYE!

    Nicki Minaj completely swiped Lil Kim off the map and im glad. If shes so fake and jocking her so bad well people are going with it and shes making her millions and getting her hits. I love the fact that Haters are the first to comment and ur not benefiting from any of it but Nicki is, dont u realize that. The hate is only making Nicki bigger. I LOVE IT!!!!!

    [Reply]

    She definitely toned down the sex appeal and dramatic facial expressions for this video. It was nice, it went well with the song. All eyes are on her so more power to her!!

    @ Will…. NICKI SAID THIS HERSELF… SHE DIDNT REALLY LIKE “YOUR LOVE” HER FANS LIKE IT AND IT WAS GETTING RADIO PLAY, SO SHE JUST WENT WITH THE FLOW.
    “YOUR LOVE” AND “MASSIVE ATTACK” WILL NOT BE ON HER DEBUT ALBUM. THE SINGLE FOR HER DEBUT WILL BE RELEASED LATE AUG, EARLY SEPT. NOW YOU GET YOUR SH*T RIGHT BEFORE YOU COME AT ME… CAUSE I KNOW WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT

  65. The Facts

    Nicki Minaj does not have her album coming out because she’s waiting till lil wayne get out because she can’t hold her own and she knows her album will flop without him.

    Lil Wayne is her mouth piece. Just as he was for Drake. Am I the only one who noticed how Drake & Nicki style changed onced they linked with Wayne.. They sound like him 100%

    I know whenever I compare anything its rarely satisfying and always subjective and ego driven. When I just try to identify with stuff I am able to accept what it is and appreciate it for its genuineness and uniqueness. It is what it is. She is an accomplished artist. The production on this video was classic and uptown. She is a work in progress.

    [Reply]

  79. Steve

    WTH ??? I just saw the Call on Me video and this is NO WHERE near the same concept. Some of you are hating on Nicki’s success so much that when every thing is good, you try to find something thts bad or that she bitted, nothing here is the same as any other video I’ve seen. I think all the chicks in this vid are bad (just to add), and I love the fite bcus I think everybody was expecting Nicki to win, but all-in-all, this video and song are hits.

    I liked it. I’m annoyed with the Lil’ Kim comments tho. Lil’ Kim’s at home lovin this attention she’s gettin now that she started drama with Nicki… it’s not 1996 anymore that’s all I have to say. The dude from Why Did I Get Married was killin me at the end… corny lol. Nicki was cute tho
