A fantasy it was, indeed.
On Thursday (January 27), MTV premiered the video for Nick Minaj’s “Moment 4 Life,” featuring Drake. In three lavish outfits, Nicki Minaj pulled double acting duties. The Queens MC introduced one of her alter-ego’s, Martha, Roman’s mother, who played Barbie’s fairy godmother. “He is off to boarding school by the way. Him and Slim Shady were reeking havoc over the industry, darling,” Martha said of Roman’s whereabouts.
In all black, with a touch of scruff, Barbie’s on-screen beau, Drake walked her down the aisle. The Young Money label mates appear to share a kiss before fireworks light up at the strike of midnight. After the clip’s debut, Nicki chatted with Sway about crafting “Moment 4 Life” and why working with Drake is so enjoyable.
“Drake do what I tell him to do, I’m Nicki Minaj!” she joked. “He always makes me feel like it’s ok … he’s someone I look up to.”
