Nelly, Pharrell, and Nicki Minaj twerk it out in their “Get Like Me” video.
We had already signed up for Nelly’s grimy “Get Like Me” track featuring Nicki Minaj and Pharrell when we first heard it back in June. Now we’re even MORE signed up after watching the record’s slick-to-the-max video, and no, it’s NOT just because Nelly’s guns are out of control, or because Pharrell decided to rock a tightly tied hood for most of the clip. OK, fine, maybe it IS partially for those reasons, but we have plenty more, promise!
Watch Nelly’s “Get Like Me” video featuring Nicki Minaj and Pharrell after the jump.
Directed by Colin Tilley, the stark black-and-white video — taken from Nelly’s upcoming M.O. album — features the power trio hanging out in a land full of hot chicks with toned butts. And while we’d normally expect those butts to be the focal point of any other music video, “Get Like Me” is instead fully dedicated to its main mistress, i.e. vanity shots of Nicki Minaj in skintight outfits twerking and making up special names for herself like “Buns Minaj.”
Meanwhile, Nelly and Pharrell spend their time checking out the scantily clad ass-shakers, but not before we see a diamond rainstorm (literally diamonds falling from the sky) and some not-that-soft-looking money-themed toilet paper (#ironic).
To make a long story short, it’s basically impossible to decide whether you should spend more time checking out Nicki’s ass, Pharrell’s hood, or Nelly’s guns. Talk about music video motion sickness/overstimulation! In the best possible way, of course.
