When Sean Kingston and Nicki Minaj shot the video for their dancehall jam “Letting Go (Dutty Love),” the 20-year-old crooner had a specific goal in mind. “[Nicki] has an amazing shape. Every time I see her she looks more than a 10… Jamaica, that’s where the video is being shot. I’m gonna try to make my move there,” Kingston told Rap-Up.com in June. Well, we’re not quite sure how that played out, but the video sure looks good. Head below to check Sean and Nicki out as they keep it real in the streets of Ocho Rios, Jamaica in the Lil X-directed clip for “Letting Go (Dutty Love).”
If you’re finding something a tad familiar here (other than the sight of folks in tight clothing gyrating at a rapid pace, that is), it’s probably the Rihanna/“Te Amo” sample. Both that track and “Letting Go” were produced by the Stargate team.
And as for the flirtatious words Sean previously uttered about his female rap companion, perhaps the response he was waiting for is in her rhymes: “Know you gettin’ hyper, know you wanna get up in it, but I just wanna think about it for another minute.”
Kingston’s third album is due out later this year. The Minajston union is TBD.
