Nicki Minaj Transforms Into a Puppet in “Barbie Tingz” Video
Following the visual teaser that she released on April 12, when she also delivered the single, the full video features the Queens rapper transforming into a human puppet, where she is controlled by strings above her.
While the Young Money hitmaker taps back into her toy doll mode, sporting plastic-like accessories, she also dresses up in colonial-styled clothes and a wig, which match the original artwork for the single. At another point in the Giovanni Bianco-directed video, Nicki throws on some sporty clothes and busts out some serious turn up moves with a group of dancers, including Aliya Janell, who accompanied her in the teaser as a toy doll.
The scene from the teaser where men dress up in suits, and women imitate the look of mannequins while holding up Nicki Minaj faces, is also included in the finalized version.
The "No Frauds" entertainer also released her anticipated "Chun-Li" music video today, which follows in the footsteps of a selfie video, as well as a lengthy teaser.
