Nicki Minaj releases a lot of videos. Today, she's joined by Cassie (remember "Me & U"?) in the video for "The Boys," a quick romp heavy on primary covers, bikinis, thongs and kick drums.
The track is actually interesting because it vacillates from rap song to some version of a downtempo singer-songwriter tune. The video dances through moods in a similar fashion, assaulting the viewer with doses of Minaj's frenetic, craven Barbie personality, Cassie's street-chic stunting and both of them gazing longingly into the camera. There are also a few mild hints at something sapphic, with Minaj dancing around Cassie seductively. Also, some guys are dead at the end.
So it goes. Peep the visuals above. More Nicki below.
