Minaj is on her “Queen” grind.
Last August, Nicki Minaj dropped Queen, which was her triumphant return to the game. There was a four-year gap between Minaj’s last album and her latest one, so her fans were more than excited when Queen touched down. Although it’s been a half a year since the project touched down, Minaj is still in promo mode. The Queen herself announced that she would be dropping a music video for “Hard White” on Thursday night, and lo and behold, it has arrived.
“Hard White” was a fan favorite, and a good selection for Minaj to bless with a music video. Directed by Mike Ho, the visuals for “Hard White” use religious symbolism to paint a haunting backdrop for Minaj. Derranged nuns and chalk white demonic looking beings help hammer home the creepy vibe of the video, but the shots of Minaj sitting in a futuristic throne are the real eye catcher.
