After teasing a potential Nicki Minaj collaboration, Trina unveils the video for her K. Michelle-assisted single “If It Ain’t Me.”
Directed by Michael Garcia, the clip stars Dave East as Trina’s leading man. While their romance appears to be sizzling, he has other plans on his mind. Soon, he’s found in a strip club, making it rain on temptation.
“Who you lovin’ when I go out on the tour?” asks Da Baddest Bitch. “Bring back a check, I bet that bitch is such a bore / Who you lovin’, who you wanna be fuckin’? / I got ni**a groupies at me, but my vibrator buzzin’.”
K. Michelle shows up as the ride-or-die best friend, helping Trina through the heartache. Meanwhile, Da Baddest reflects on good times and happy memories, before waving Dave off. “I can’t even believe I’m still talking about you,” she says. “You played yourself.”
In February, Trina spoke with Rap-Up about “If It Ain’t Me” and her K. Michelle bond. “Working with K. Michelle is easy,” she said. “There’s a great chemistry with me and her so that was one thing that made it even more of a blessing for her to be on the record.”
“If It Ain’t Me” is a single off Trina’s forthcoming album. Executive produced by Rico Love, the yet-to-be-titled project is set to feature appearances by 2 Chainz, Boosie Badazz, Plies, Kelly Price, and her ex Lil Wayne.
