Zombie Queen! Nicki Minaj Goes Goth In Ominous “Hard White” Video
2019 is shaping up to be a very busy year for Nicki Minaj. This month, the “Good Form” rapper is heading across the pond to embark on The Nicki WRLD Tour with new tour-mate Juice WRLD. They’ll kick things off with a set in Munich, Germany on February 21 and travel Europe for a slew of performances. After that, she’s allegedly launching a North American leg. We’re still waiting on those dates. But in the meantime, the hitmaker appears to have selected the latest single off Queen – “Hard White.” And the generous icon is not waiting at all to start promoting it. Today (February 1), she dropped a suitably epic music video.
Directed by Mike Ho, the ominous release sees Nicki claim a throne and rule over her zombie-like subjects. No shortage of looks are served in the release, and the otherworldly goth vibes leave a lasting impression. With any luck, the video will give “Hard White” a bit of a jumpstart on the charts. In just over an hour, it amassed more than 320,000 views on YouTube. Meanwhile, #HardWhiteVIDEO is one of the top trending topics on Twitter. A viral visual may be enough to net the 36-year-old her second Top 10 hit off the project. After landing one right of the gate with “Chun-Li,” she’s struggled to replicate the feat despite dropping some serious bangers.
Hopefully this is the one to break the trend. Check out Nicki’s latest below!
