Behind the Video: Nicki Minaj f/ Cassie – ‘The Boys’

While tensions are high on the “American Idol” set, Nicki Minaj heats up the set of “The Boys,” her new single featuring Cassie. The colorful clip, directed by Colin Tilley, features plenty of pink and Roman’s own ice cream parlor.

In the first behind-the-scenes footage, the Young Money diva gets outfitted in neon colors as she strolls through a fictional block featuring Barb-inspired delights and drives around in a souped-up pink whip.

“Whoa, I wanna live on this block,” said a blonde-haired Nicki.

“The Boys” is the first single from Pink Friday…Roman Reloaded Re-Up, due in November. In addition to the upbeat number, expect 5-6 new tracks including a collaboration with Lil Wayne.

While we await a release date for the full video, go behind the scenes below.
