The official music video for Nicki Minaj and will.i.am’s joint collaboration is finally here. It’s exactly what I’ve come to expect from the talented female MC. The kick ass track, “Check It Out“, samples The Buggles’ 80′s hit, “Video Killed The Radio Star” which was the first video shown on MTV in 1981. It will be included on Nicki’s debut album, “Pink Friday” which hit stores November 22.
Once again, Minaj channels her inner hip-hop Barbie for the vid. Director Rich Lee filmed the visually pleasing clip. It mixes Japanese anime graphics while Minaj and will.i.am bust out some pretty fierce robotic dance moves. There’s a few wicked special effects during the dance numbers you have to check out. Loving the colorful Japanese characters popping throughout the video. Thanks to Minaj, if I ever need to know how to write “fierce bitch” in Japanese, I now have a vague clue on how to do it.
Be sure to select the “HI” quality option when viewing it. Watching the video grainy doesn’t do it any justice.
You likey or you hatey? I absolutely love it and Minaj. To me, she’s the hip-hop Lady Gaga. Give her a year, and she’ll be insanely huge.
