Watch the Teaser for Nicki Minaj’s Official “Chun-Li” Video
Nicki Minaj already released one video for her latest single, "Chun-Li," but now the rapper is gearing up to drop the song's official music video. Ahead of the release of the new visuals, Nicki shared a nearly two-minute-long teaser on Thursday (April 26).
Teaming up with dancer Aliya Janell, the "Chun-Li" teaser features the two sporting black latex outfits as they dance along to Nicki's second verse. The rapper then lets Janell take center stage for a bit as the dancer shows off her moves during the song's outro. While the teaser may seem like a strange music video, Minaj explains that it's not an actual representation of the upcoming video.
"The REAL #ChunLi video DOES NOT look like what you’ll see when you click the link!!!" she wrote on Instagram. "But after 2 days of filming, around 5am when my whole team & crew were TIRED AF, I asked her to FREESTYLE with me & this is what happened."
Nicki added that the real "Chun-Li" video is directed by Steven Klein and will "BLOW ur fkng mind!" The Pinkprint rapper continued, "Video coming soon. Thx for ur patience."
The previously released video for "Chun-Li" is made up of selfie footage shot vertically and appears to be from the same video shoot. Nicki rocks a similar latex outfit and poses seductively in pink lighting.
Up next for Nicki, the New York rapper will be performing on the season finale episode of Saturday Night Live on May 19. Minaj was originally going to premiere a new song from her upcoming album but ultimately decided against it. "Change my mind about his babe. No new songs," she tweeted on Thursday.
