Hey, don’t forget — Nicki Minaj released a new single last month! Onika’s anguished Dr. Luke ballad “Pills N Potions” — which, let’s face it, plays like “Wrecking Ball”-lite — might not exactly be blowing gals like Iggy, Ariana and Katy out of the water, but perhaps the music video will turn the single’s chart fortunes around? We’ll find out after it premieres this Monday (June 9).
Until then, all fans of hip-pop’s Queen Barb will have to make due with the above 46-second preview of the Diane Martel-directed “Pills N Potions” visual. Here, Game co-stars as Nicki smokes a cigarette, cries a flood of liquid mercury tears and poses topless, all while seeming somehow way more dressed-down and au naturale than in her previous, candy-colored “Starships” days.
Watch a sneak pick of the “Pills N Potions” video above, and let us know what you think of it below!
