Behind the Video: Busta Rhymes f/ Nicki Minaj – ‘#Twerkit’

Earlier in the week, she took us behind the scenes of Mario’s video for “Somebody Else.” Now Nicki Minaj joins Busta Rhymes on set of the video for his Pharrell-produced single “#Twerkit.” In the behind-the-scenes footage, she is seen in the studio recording her verse and then shooting the video the next day.

“I didn’t know this was a real video,” Nicki tells director X as she gets prepped for her scenes.

She sports a studded captain’s hat and twerks for the camera before shooting scenes with Busta and DJ Khaled, who gets the crew laughing with his attempt at a Jamaican accent.

Pharrell also stops by the set and shares a funny moment with Nicki in the parking lot.

Prepare for lots of twerking action from Nicki and some “Big Booty Judys” when the video premieres later this month.
