Video: Nicki Minaj f/ Drake – ‘Moment 4 Life’

Nicki Minaj and Drake

Nicki Minaj finds her prince in the fairy tale video for “Moment 4 Life,” her collaboration with Drake off her platinum debut Pink Friday. In the Chris Robinson-directed clip, the Young Money rappers act out the rumors by walking down the aisle and sharing a kiss at the stroke of midnight.

“Out of everyone I’ve shot a video with, I was most comfortable with [Drake],” the hip-hop princess told MTV News. “I just always have a special place for him.”

Watch the royal treatment below, including a cameo from Nicki’s alter-ego Martha aka Roman’s mother.

    As for the video, I mean it had nice scenery, but that was about it. All the pics we saw before the vid came out showed everything, so no surprise here. But ok vid

    No, they did not mess up. In the song, Nicki says “In this very moment I’m king”
    She calls herself a King.
    Anyway, the video is AMAZING. I loved it. She’s gorgeous and Drake… SEXY PAPI!!

    She’s always callin herself a King instead of a QUeen, it’s not a typo. It’s cause Kings have more power.

  31. alicia's a homewrecka

    ok, I’m not drinking the cool aid. the intro was cute but why the muliple shots of just her throughout the music video (sorry I lost interest) and the ending was alright. I guess I was expecting something else.

    Wow. It was very fun but I can’t stand Drake and he felt so out of place in the entire video. Blah, I hate the horrible auto tune trick his “rapping”. I know Nicki ain’t exactly a true rapper either but that crap is so annoying and it takes away from any of the heart, fun, or anything in the song because too much is going on with that auto tune.

  37. bknyhustle

    This video is what hip-hop needs. Mainstream creativity seem to only belong to Ye recently. This video is nice. With the Barb controller and (still)the hottest rapper in the game, it’ll be #1 on every countdown. That’s RealTalk son.

    haha @Daquan yes like lil kim really?? why bring her into this at all, it seems like for people to hate on Nicki so much the lil kim fans seem to always have a spot fr their un-needed opinion on a Nicki post like get a life…We right your opinion if no one care!! WASTE OF TIME!! Nicki Minaj and Drake all day bitches…get wit it or get lost!! oh and @big_v FYI the song is fucking one of my fav songs, so its GREAT to me…coming from an opinion that matters!!

    This song is NOT just a hot beat. Did u hear illiterates hear the words or just skim through it. This is a type of song hip hop needs right now, hell music needs this. The video is made for a king like Nicki.

    I assume Nicki is paying homage to King Hatshepsut who ruled Egypt. She was actually a female, but was able to take on the position and actually had to wear the same apparel as a male pharaoh.

    So queens are powerless, huh? Guess some of y’all never heard of Queen Elizabeth I, to START with. Read a book, people – or matter of fact, watch The History Channel if reading is too advanced for you. She kinda, you know, ruled England/Ireland all by herself WITHOUT a man for decades until she gave up power by dying. That’s all.

    I can’t with the psuedo-British accent, though. Try again, Nicki. lol But points for creativity. I like her rapping style in this song, but the “Hollywood couldn’t change me” didn’t ring true if what her old fans say is true. I don’t know. I couldn’t finish because of Drake – IIIICCKKK! His voice! No, no, and no. Pretty video, though, what I saw of it.

    Hi JossEnjoyed the read above, and the comment my mate Paul put on here :) As the lead dev for Hubbbie, and mltpilue other systems, there is a reason for the noreply mail addresses: many mail hosts, such as Yahoo, Hotmail, etc, actually allow more mail through with SPF acknowledged DNS settings as well as, you guessed it, it being a noreply@ address. Reason? If a bounce back occurs to the noreply, the mail server actually know it shouldn’t go through and automatically re-route it to the trash :)This is all to mitigate unneeded mail in inboxes, as one would want actual mail to come through, such as your example of a template getting messed up. That is why we have the support@ mail address. I actually haven’t come across one user who didn’t know that they should forward queries to support@ and not noreply@. And 99% of users know that if it is a noreply@ address, not to reply to it, as the name is pretty self-explanatory and its basically breeding a culture around e-mail system usage by having everyone join in and use this type of system.True, the hello@ and info@ etc etc mailboxes are useful for first contact, but who would reply to a e-mail saying that they just received a invite request? What would the content of their reply be firstly? If, for instance, your bank sends you a text message that you have withdrawn over a certain amount, would you want to reply to it? :)
