Nicki Minaj Goes ‘Pop’ with Multi-Million Dollar Pepsi Campaign

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj is officially going pop. The hip-hop diva has been tapped as the face of a multi-million dollar campaign for Pepsi’s new beverage “Pop.”

According to Forbes, the seven-figure deal includes a commercial, which she recently shot in Argentina. It will launch later this spring, while footage from the shoot leaked online last month.

“You’ll see the commercial probably in the next two months,” said Derek Jackson of Glu, the agency that brokered the deal. “That’ll be a segue into a new beverage Pepsi has, called ‘Pop,’ and she’ll be the face of the brand… It’s going to be explosive.”

Terms of Nicki’s deal weren’t publicly disclosed, but Forbes reports that it was worth millions. Her Young Money boss Lil Wayne scored a similar endorsement with Pepsi’s sister brand Mountain Dew to star in its DEWeezy campaign, which includes an original filmed funded by Pepsi and Mountain Dew.

    @Jay, Nicki is reaping of the benefits of years of hard work labored by other women. Just as Gaga is successful because Madonna broke down walls. When Kim Missy hit the stage it was a lot harder. 95′ these companies wouldn’t touch Hip Hop.

    I mean. If getting wealthy and rich is the main goal, congrats. The girl is successful. But look at what she had to do to get there. And all I have to ask is … Is it worth it? What you’re doing to yourself, your community, the legion of girls who look up to you, etc. Is all that worth millions?

    Right now, the best-selling album in Cash Money history is Juvenile’s “400 Degreez,” which brought us such classics as “Ha” and “Back That Azz Up”…overall, it was a SOUTHERN HIP-HOP CLASSIC.

    Given all the buzz surrounding Nicki, her album has a chance to outsell it (I pray it DOESN’T happen)

    If she fails, just goes to show ya that real hip-hop will always triumph.
    If she succeeds…I’m quitting this business and switching to classical!

    @Iceman,so what if it out sell it,no matter if if it out sells juvi,both album is still going to be what they are in my sight,400 Degree is one of my fav albums real classic,nicki is a female artist trying to get her piece of the bread why are you comparing and tearing her down let the chick live,she is a star in her own right and i am getting her album i am supporting her,and if kayne west good music album is out by then i,ll get that too,like i am saying juvi is in is lane and nicki is in hers let them live.

    Hello everyone. I just have to get this off of my chest. Sorry if it sounds like I’m venting. But why can’t us black women get along? What is the matter with Beyonce? She exhibits such bitchy behavior and has no effin talent. Don’t get me wrong, I like her, but she’s tired as hell. Nobody wants to see or hear her tone deaf screaming sh-t at the top of her lungs.

    All my fellow black bitches need to get a f-ckin clue. All she is doing is taking our money so we can’t buy our weave and sh-t.

    I am all about women empowerment and I need all of my bitches to take a stand. Do we want to keep paying for lyp-schining bullsh-t? All of these broads need to step their game up, ya dig? Like Keri Hilson, Beyonce, Rihanna, Ciara, Brandy, Gaga, Katy, Ashanti, Keke Wyatt, Angela Winbush, Shanice, Tamia, etc. All of them are wack and need serious vocal lessons. Beyonce can’t dance and needs to stop faking pregancies.

    We are only as good as we let ourselves be. Ladies, stop selling your p-ssy to strangers. That sh-t is not cute and stop having threesomes just to keep a man. Trust me, I have tried it and it does nothing but leave you tired and bi-curious. If you have to sell your body, do it with pride. There’s nothing worst that a weak hoe.

    Lastly if you cant handle the heat, step out of the g-ddamn kitchen. This is for big girls that know what it means to give head and enjoy it. I’m talking slob for days. Everyone keep you head up and take the high road. You will feel much better in the end.

    It never ceases to amaze me how vile and negative some people can be. What irks you so much about someone who’s gettin money? What makes you hate the way they gettin they money? Is it because you stugglin right about now? Tryna catch a break any way you can? This is one of the reasons other races don’t take black people seriously. We can’t stand to see somebody else doin well & finding success without hatin. GET OFF YO LAZY ASS AND DO SOMETHIN WITH YA LIFE! Personally, I’m all for Nicki expanding her brand. Anyone who’s been following her since day 1 knows that RAPPING is just one part of her brand. She’s MULTI-TALENTED and has always strived for COMMERCIAL success. Who df aspires to just have local success? When you’re multifaceted like Nicki, the sky’s the limit, but there are always gonna be haters tryna box you into one category.

    @uHoesBuggin,

    I hear you, but other races have haters too. The only reason we see so much statistics about black folks is cause we are the most studied race of all time.

    But I hear you on the rest of your post. Women should support those they like and let those who they don’t just live their lives.
