Nicki Minaj & KAROL G Are Goddesses In Their Dreamy “Tusa” Video
Remember when Nicki Minaj retired? Maybe a better question is if Nicki Minaj remembers retiring. Since informing the Barbz of her plans to step back from her career in order to start a family, the Queen rapper has been surprisingly busy. She dropped collabs with PnB Rock and DaBaby in one week. Then she partnered with Ariana Grande and Normani on their Charlie’s Angels soundtrack contribution “Bad To You.” Not that I’m complaining, but it’s a packed schedule for a retiree. And she’s not slowing down yet. Today (November 7), the 36-year-old links up with Colombian superstar KAROL G on another new song called “Tusa.”
Her latest delivers summery vibes that are very welcome as we’re heading into winter. The breezy bop (its title translates to heartbreak in Colombian slang) features a predictably fiery, bilingual verse courtesy of Nicki. Better yet is the video. Directed by Mike Ho and shot on location in Los Angeles, it is a pink-hued fever dream. In it, the jewel-encrusted divas channel goddesses in the midst of a gorgeous manor. The aesthetic screams luxury and could very easily net them a viral smash. How did the duet come together? KAROL G shared some insight in a press release. “Collaborating on ‘Tusa’ with Nicki Minaj came into my life unexpectedly,” she explained.
“The collaboration and the song means more to me than I can put into words. I hope everyone enjoys ‘Tusa’ as much as Nicki and I did creating it!” Dive into the fantasy world below.
