After weeks of teasing the masses with promo art, behind the scenes footage and a 15 second clip on instagram, Nicki Minaj’s video for “Anaconda” is finally here. In case you were wondering, it’s exactly what you’d expect: Hair, booty and the cutting of phallic objects. Sampled from Sir Mix-A-Lot’s original, “Baby Got Back,” the dance ready track sees the Young Money artist and her thick legged cohorts posing in the jungle, working out in the gym and dancing in high waisted shorts and Air Jordans 6’s against a white backdrop. What’s not to love? Sir Mix-A-Lot himself gives the video his stamp of approval:
And if you have no patience for buns, at least watch the last 30 seconds of the clip, in which Drake’s soul nearly leaves his body after a lap dance he’ll never forget… Compelling stuff.
Check out the Colin Tilley directed video above and be on the lookout for Nicki’s soon to be released album The Pinkprint, set to drop this fall.
