Barbie’s back. Nicki Minaj has been keeping a low profile lately, but she returns for the new year with a new video for “Hard White,” a standout off last year’s Queen album.
The Queen rules her kingdom of darkness in the sinister clip. The self-proclaimed “bad guy” takes her seat on a throne while presiding over her zombie-like subjects. She switches up her look several times, donning a metallic outfit in one scene and a snakeskin headdress in another.
“Partying in Paris, these bitches is embarrassed / ‘Cause they know I’m the queen, I still didn’t pick an heiress / Mirror, mirror, who’s the fairest?” asks Nicki.
“Hard White” is the latest Queen song to receive a visual following “Ganja Burn,” “Barbie Dreams,” “Bed,” “Chun-Li,” and “Good Form.”
Starting next month, Nicki will head overseas for her “Nicki WRLD Tour” with Juice WRLD. The European trek kicks off Feb. 21 in Munich, Germany and travels to 22 cities, wrapping March 28 in Geneva, Switzerland.
