Nicki Minaj

Girl power. After giving us a sneak peek at the video in a commercial for Beats by Dre, Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj take us behind the scenes of their music video for “Bang Bang.” The divas come together for one big party in the Hannah Lux Davis-directed clip, which was shot on the Paramount lot in Hollywood.

“The concept of the video is really about girls coming together and partying it up,” said Davis.

Jessie J pulls up to a block party on a hot summer day in her pink whip. “She really brings everybody together and they kinda start this movement through the city,” she said.

Ariana shot her solo scenes in a loft, while a bikini-clad Nick arrives to the party in a helicopter.

The video ends with a rooftop performance of them raging through the night.

Tune in to the VMAs on Sunday to see the ladies open the show and world premiere the video.

Video: Nicki Minaj – ‘Anaconda’

Nicki Minaj

Baby got back. Nicki Minaj drops the big and bootyful video for her Sir Mix-a-Lot-sampled banger “Anaconda.” The tropical-themed clip, directed by Colin Tilley, stars the reigning rap queen in all her voluptuous glory.

She shakes her famous ass in a rainforest before heading to the gym, where she does yoga in a G-string. Next, it’s to the kitchen, where she sprays whipped cream on her breasts and eats a banana. In between her chair choreography, she gives Drake a lap dance he won’t ever forget…but just don’t touch.

Produced by Polow Da Don and Da Internz, the raucous rump shaker will appear on Nicki’s upcoming third album The Pinkprint, due this fall.

The video is everything and more, and we cannot lie.

Nicki Minaj Gives Drake a Lap Dance in ‘Anaconda’ Video

Drake and Nicki Minaj

Praise Onika. Nicki Minaj is getting freaky with Drake in some behind-the-scenes photos from her “Anaconda” video. Wearing skintight leggings, a pink bra, and Louboutin stiletto boots, the voluptuous vixen squats down and gives her Young Money brother a lap dance while he sits in a chair and takes it all in.

Nicki changes into Jordans and puts her famous booty in Drizzy’s face in the intimate scenes, which she teased on Instagram.

“I was probably thanking the higher ups for that very moment,” tweeted Drake. “Def the best invite to a video shoot EVER. #ViewsFromMyChair #MyAnacondaWasWayUp.”

This is not Drizzy’s first lap dance from Nicki. She previously serenaded him onstage during her tour with Britney Spears in 2011.

The Colin Tilley-directed video for “Anaconda” will premiere Wednesday on VEVO. Last week, Nicki shared a vlog from the set.

Check out more photos of Lap Dance Nika below.

During the 30-minute program, the uninformed Skylark asks the Aussie rapper if she knows Austrian actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and questions Nicki about her song “Super Bass,” or “Superb Ass” as he calls it, making for some funny and uncomfortable moments.

Jason Derulo also joins Skylark during the promo, which airs Sunday, August 17, at 9 p.m. on MTV.
