Directed by Diane Martel, the video finds Nicki playing off model Willy Monfret. “I’m making big drama?!?!” But their heat is restored once they hit the shower.
Seeing Nicki rocking a natural look (without any of these) was a refreshing change, and it perfectly suited a song she has described as one of her most revealing.
“The song to me is very, very personal. I haven’t spoken about an authentic relationship since I’ve come out, so this is my first time where I’m speaking about something very, very authentic that everyone in the world can relate to,” she told Entertainment Tonight during filming. “Not everybody is rich, not everybody likes jewelry, not everyone likes playing dress-up, but everyone has been in a relationship at some point in their lives, so when you hear a relationship song, it’s like, you react.”
This clip is so good, we’re pretty much willing to forget about “Massive Attack”. Can’t wait for Pink Friday.
