Last month, Nicki Minaj released a trio of singles, and the first one to get an official music video is "No Frauds." The Benny Boom directed video was released yesterday and as expected, both Lil Wayne and Drake are featured in it. Over the last 18 hours Minaj's "No Frauds" music video has been streamed over six million times. If you have not seen it yet, you'll want to watch it via the video above.
Lyrically, the song talks about how Minaj is the queen of rap so it's fitting that one of the first shots features the rapper wearing a crown while sitting on a throne. The video was shot in London and for much of the first half Minaj is rapping while looking glamorous in different parts of the city.
One part of the city featured in the video is Westminster Bridge. Last month on that bridge a terrorist attack started. In the "No Frauds" music video Minaj sings the chorus on the bridge, and because of that, she's gotten some flack.
Even though all three rappers are in the video, all three are never in the same shot. The exterior shots of London only feature Minaj. The shots in a busy night club feature both Drake and Minaj. Lil Wayne only shows up at the end of the video. He is seen with Minaj in the throne room. While rapping his verse Lil Wayne sits on one throne, while Minaj is next to him sitting on her throne.
No word yet on when Nicki Minaj's new album will come out. She has yet to even announce an album title, let alone a release date. With all the new music she has been releasing, there's a good chance a new album will be out by the end of the year.
