Behind the Video: Nicki Minaj f/ Cassie – ‘The Boys’

Nicki Minaj

While tensions are high on the “American Idol” set, Nicki Minaj heats up the set of “The Boys,” her new single featuring Cassie. The colorful clip, directed by Colin Tilley, features plenty of pink and Roman’s own ice cream parlor.

In the first behind-the-scenes footage, the Young Money diva gets outfitted in neon colors as she strolls through a fictional block featuring Barb-inspired delights and drives around in a souped-up pink whip.

“Whoa, I wanna live on this block,” said a blonde-haired Nicki.

“The Boys” is the first single from Pink Friday…Roman Reloaded Re-Up, due in November. In addition to the upbeat number, expect 5-6 new tracks including a collaboration with Lil Wayne.

While we await a release date for the full video, go behind the scenes below.

    @NickiSlaysMe, I wouldnt support a greedy self centered artist like Nicki. She stand for nothing but money and greed. When have she stopped chasing money for a minute just to give a bag of food to the needy. I’ll wait.

    @NickiSlaysMe, Convinced all Nicki fans are challenged physically and mentally. Nobody in their right mind will keep supporting this conceited clown.

    I’am anxious to see how the whole video looks like. The song is starting to rub on to me especially with Nicki spitting so hard.

    I like this song, its fun.
    Anyways, Nicki needs to fix her attitude and show some RESPECT to living legends. In the words of Beyonce “YOU GOT A BIG EGO!”.God dont like ugly.Power and Money has revealed her true colours.

    @WonderLand19, Then I guess God doesn’t like Mariah because Mariah has been calling her names the whole time… thats when Nicki quit biting her tongue.

    @Meme, How do you know? I work on the set and Nicki feels as if she should get the same ROYAL treatment as Mariah. She came in with an ego bigger than MARIAH! She’s the most defensive celebrity. Demanding the same respect as Mariah even when she’s treated like a well known celebrity. INSECURE. All these stans don’t know how UGLY Nicki is behind the BLOGS! She’s NASTY! Glad I can hide my identity but fame has gone to Nicki’s head. The most egotistical female celebrity is Nicki.

    @CameraCrew, I believe nothing you just said. And if you actually do work on the set, I’m curious as to how your American Idol superiors feel about your comments, being that you signed that Non-Disclosure Agreement that stops you from discussing things like this off set. #READ

    @DenimJunkieKidd, What’s hateful is who you idolize. If you only knew! SMH

    DenimJunkieKidd Reply:

    @DenimJunkieKidd, @CameraCrew i don’t idolize any , I’m an adult…..I do like nicki, but she is far from my favorite(Rihanna & Kanye). I should be SMH at the lies you just told to try and prove your point.

    CameraCrew Reply:

    @blackabed, You dont have to believe me. There’s a number of sets involving these 2 artist. To say the least, Nicki is a KNOWN egotistical artist who does ANYTHING for attention and fame. Nicki was hired to do just what she’s doing and its working. She has millions of kids buying into her fraudulent behavior. Behind Nicki’s barbie act is a bipolar attention seeking bit(*!

    Bougie Kid Reply:

    @CameraCrew, Everyone should be treated with equal respect. When you have someone like Mariah on panel, people are going to be waiting at her feet. If my employer was to write me a $12 million check I’ll expect the highest treatment always. Especially if I was highly considered for the job. Your description of her when it comes to handling business is by far different from her personal ways. Good day!

    Bougie Kid Reply:

    @WonderLand19, Whether Mariah is considered a legend or not, she still should show respect to Nicki. Being shady while working is classless and Mariah “supposedly” is classy. I can’t! If God doesn’t like ugly, then Mariah isn’t favorable.

    WonderLand19 Reply:

    @Bougie Kid, everyone should be respected but that behavour would never be condoned at work.There is a time and place for everything.Also, Nicki has to deal with the fact she has a problem with authority.Especially female authority.Lets see how this plays out.

    @Bougie Kid, No one knows exactly what happen. Nicki has a problem with her highness. Selfish. Mariah been in the game for years; she knows she’s a diva. She’s worth 600 mill. I mean, come on. Nicki came in the game and tried to talk ALL authority. She doesn’t even applaud the upcoming female rappers. That’s telling you something. Everyone deserves respect. Definitely. Put the pieces together, though.

    I bet if Nicki fans can all show their face 95% of them are irregular. Meaning something is wrong with them both physically and mentally.

    People need to realize that nobody cares what you have to say . Like damn Nicki out here grinding making money while yall are on a site trying to get your opinion across . Everybody got something negative to say about her while she is living her life and living her dreams. Nobody is perfect and instead of trying to tell Nicki about herself yall need to worry about yourselves and stop dick riding . Because I can guranete if Mariah & Nicki make another song everyone going to be on their clicks again .

    Shout out to Nicki Minaj and all the artist in the music business that everyone throws shade at. These people out here grinding and making money and putting in work and nobody appreciates that. I’am excited for ” The Boys” music video and I know Nicki and Cassie are going to deliver .

    I find it so crazy that people really garner hate in their hearts for people they don’t really know… I am a fan of Nicki’s and I don’t always agree with things she says or does but I keep in mind that I do not KNOW her. I have never met her nor do I know her thought process. Social Media, Blogs and the internet has given this generation an UNDESERVED sense of entitlement and it makes us feel too close to these people we either idolize or despise. Stop judging AND idolizing others and live YOUR life. This is for the stans AND the haters. You don’t know ANY of these artists. They’re people and they put on their pants one leg at a time JUST LIKE YOU. Music and entertainment used to be just fun but the public has made it something ugly… On to this song and video, I think it looks cute and Nicki’s verses on this song are the best she’s put out in a while (on her own record).
