Nicki Minaj liberates herself in the stunning video for her latest single “Freedom” off her new album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up.
The video was shot earlier this month in London by fame director Colin Tilley while Nicki Minaj was on tour in the U.K.
“I wanted it to feel timeless and classic, so it was important that we established a very intense backdrop for all of the setups,” Nicki Minaj told 106 & Park during a visit on the show.
The part black-and-white and part colour video features a blonde Nicki Minaj rapping in front an old ship, thanking her label YMCMB for supporting her career. The Queens femcee then put on her crown in another scene.
Nicki said the video was her least favourite to shoot because of the extreme winter weather in the U.K.
“It was five degrees and it was hailing,” Nicki said.
