Nicki Minaj and Rihanna to Preview ‘Fly’ Video During VMA Pre-Show

Nicki Minaj’s long-awaited video for “Fly” is finally about to take off. After a series of delays, MTV will premiere a sneak peek of the Pink Friday clip co-starring Rihanna during the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards pre-show.

The Sanaa Hamri-directed visuals were filmed in January, but held so Nicki could release “Super Bass” as a single off her debut. “The Rihanna video is a freakin’ epic movie,” she previously told MTV News, adding to E! Online, “We’re going to save the world in more ways than one with the video.”

An official premiere date for the full video has yet to be announced. Get a first look when the VMA pre-show airs live on Sunday, August 28, at 8 p.m. EST, hosted by Selena Gomez.
