Watch: Nicki Minaj Releases "Chun-Li," "Barbie Tingz" Music Videos
If you were looking to cool down with the release of Nicki Minaj's latest music videos, you have another thing coming.
The GRAMMY-nominated rapper dropped music videos for her latest tracks, "Chun-Li" and "Barbie Tingz," on May 4. She released the tracks on April 11 following a mysterious countdown on her social media accounts in the days prior.
Steven Klein was drafted to direct "Chun-Li," which places Minaj on a futuristic-type set with an assassin-heavy motif. On "Barbie Tingz," Giovanni Bianco was enlisted to co-direct with Minaj, in which the rapper dons a variety of characters — a Barbie puppet, Victorian-era good-girl and a sporty look — while laying down her verses.
Though Minaj hinted at an album late last year, there's still no word on when a new LP might be on the horizon. In the meantime, Minaj left us with plenty to tide us over.
