“Never looked like this in a vid,” Nicki Minaj said during a Twitter Q&A, of her forthcoming “Pills N Potions” video. Based on two teasers, it may be as stripped down as the song itself. Before she partied in Las Vegas, Minaj teased a few scenes from the anticipated clip, reportedly directed by Diane Martel. Fittingly, she appears to be completely alone, if not vulnerable in the shadowy footage. In one scene, her hair covers up her otherwise bare chest.

Martel has worked with Minaj once before, for her 2010 “Right Thru Me” video. At the time, fans and critics were surprised to see the Pink Print star without a candy-colored wig on and in her underwear, just as they were used to seeing her in more colorful ensembles. If she is indeed directing the video, then “Pills N Potions” would mark a departure for Martel, too. Last year, she courted controversy for her direction with Robin Thicke‘s “Blurred Lines” and Miley Cyrus‘ “We Can’t Stop.”
