Lil Wayne, Drake, and Nicki Minaj

Bad bitch alert. Nicki Minaj turns Pink Friday into Black Friday in the dark and twisted video for “Only,” the third single off The Pinkprint. In the Hannah Lux Davis-directed clip (“Bang Bang”), the rap queen plays a dominatrix, who tortures her male victims in an underground sex dungeon.

Her Young Money brothers Drake and Lil Wayne marvel at her assets, while her “Love More” collaborator Chris Brown makes a creepy cameo, complete with colored contacts and a grill.

Due December 15, The Pinkprint also features Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, Jessie Ware, Meek Mill, and more.

Nicki will appear on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “The Real” next week to promote the album.

Watch Queen Nicki dominate the screen.

Rap-Up TV: Jeremih Talks J. Cole, Nicki Minaj Collaborations

2014 has been good to Jeremih. The R&B crooner scored a platinum hit with his DJ Mustard-produced single “Don’t Tell ‘Em,” which peaked at No. 6 on the Hot 100. Now he hopes to carry the momentum into the new year with the release of his third album Late Nights. After a few delays, the album is set to drop around Valentine’s Day.

Fresh off the stage at Cali Christmas, Jeremih explained the reason for the pushbacks. “I’ma blame it on me looking in the mirror,” he said.

He has collaborated with J. Cole on “Planes,” which he plans to drop in the next two to three weeks. He described the record as “eclectic, something you ain’t never heard before.”

Plus, look for him on “Want Some More” and “Favorite” off Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint, due December 15.

“She the baddest. I’m surprised in this whole wide world there’s nobody that can compete,” he said of the rap queen. “To work with a woman like her is definitely dope.”
