DEEP DIVE

The video begins with text telling the story of a “generous” and powerful queen who slaughters her enemies after a deep sleep. Then, Nicki Minaj rises from the sand, sings, smokes ganja, and dances surrounded by men in an ancient Egyptian-inspired video directed Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. In Nicki’s signature style, her outfits are quite revealing and include one made of gems and another made of gold.
