Fresh off the release of her new album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up, Nicki Minaj liberates the striking video for “Freedom.” Shot in England, the Young Money queen looks gorgeous as she poses in couture pieces in the part black-and-white, part color clip, directed by Colin Tilley.
A blonde Nicki wears a crown in one scene and poses in front of an old ship in another. “I wanted it to feel timeless and classic, so it was important that we established a very intense backdrop for all of the setups,” she said during her visit to “106 & Park.”
But things weren’t all glamorous. Nicki said the video was her least favorite to shoot because of the extreme temperatures. “It was five degrees and it was hailing,” she said.
