Love takes over in the cinematic video for August Alsina’s “No Love (Remix)” co-starring Nicki Minaj. In the Benny Boom-directed clip, August and Nicki play lovers, but their relationship is non-exclusive. He hits the club with another woman, while Nicki waits at home.

But soon he realizes that what he has with Nicki is the real deal. He sends her hundreds of roses to show his love and win her heart.

In a recent interview with Rap-Up TV, August opened up about shooting the video with the “Anaconda” rapper, who also wrote the treatment.

“Nicki was very, very deeply involved with this one in particular, as far as the video goes,” he said. “She had a vision for it and she really, really is a big fan of the record, which was real important to me because it makes it that much more special.”

“No Love” is the latest single off August’s debut album Testimony.

Peep the romantic video, featuring a cameo from Tyga, below.
