Drake and Nicki Minaj

It was a Young Money reunion on set of the video for “Only.” Nicki Minaj linked up with her YMCMB brothers Drake and Lil Wayne while shooting scenes for the dark and sexy clip.

In the first photos from the set, the rap queen—donning a black bra and panties with sky-high platform heels and a veil—showed off her banging body while giving Drake and Weezy a peep show. Drizzy, who received a lap dance from Nicki in her “Anaconda” video, sat back in a chair and enjoyed the view.

Weezy couldn’t hide his excitement either, ogling Nicki’s “tit teez on fleek” while holding a bottle of her Myx moscato. Chris Brown is also featured on the Dr. Luke, Cirkut, and J Mike-produced song.

Look for the video to premiere soon, while Nicki’s third album The Pinkprint arrives December 15.

New Music: Nicki Minaj f/ Skylar Grey – ‘Bed of Lies’

Bed of Lies

After debuting the song at MTV EMA in Glasgow a week ago, Nicki Minaj quietly dropped the full version of her new single “Bed of Lies” on iTunes on Saturday night. On the Alex Da Kid and Kane Beatz-produced track, which features Skylar Grey, the leader of the Barbz puts her ex-boyfriend on blast.

“You could never make eye contact / Everything you got was based off of my contacts,” she spits, while reflecting on dark times in her relationship. “Couldn’t believe that I was home alone contemplating overdosin’, no more coastin’, no more toastin’ over oceans.”

Skylar wrote the song almost a year ago before Nicki decided to add her verses to it. “She kind of poured her heart out on the verses,” the singer-songwriter told Billboard. “I personally think as a fan it’s a nice contrast to her other singles on the record. You get to see another side of her.”

Following “Pills N Potions,” “Anaconda,” and “Only,” “Bed of Lies” is the fourth release from Nicki’s third album The Pinkprint, due December 15.
