Well, now that the video has been released, viewers can expect to watch a love scene between Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne.
And even if their acting appears to be spot on in the video, Nicki says it’s anything but. Keep in mind, Nicki is signed to Lil Wayne’s record label Young Money, so that makes Lil Wayne her boss.
“Not only is he my boss, but he’s also like my brother,” said Nicki to MTV News. “It’s very weird because I’m just used to Wayne making fun of me…so every time they yelled ‘Cut!’ I was just being picked on. It was completely them being bullies to me!’
In the video, Nicki plays a drug lord’s girlfriend who attempts to steal Lil Wayne’s character’s jewels, but before that happens, Nicki and Wayne get a little steamy in the bedroom.
Watch it here:
Lil Wayne remained professional during the filming, and according to Nicki, he frequently asked for permission before touching her.
“If I didn’t tell him ‘Yes you can do this’ or ‘touch this,’ he refused to do it like he’s a southern gentlemen, which people don’t realize,” said Nicki. “He’s so respectful, he refused to touch me, and then I was like, ‘Wayne, you could do this.’ But he was acting scared, like, ‘Yo, Nick, this is my dream. I’m gonna be a man after this video.’ He was just being crazy.”
Crazy or not, the two managed to do the sex scene, and even though Nicki described Lil Wayne as both her boss and brotherly, she also admitted she finds him sexy.
“Wayne is still so sexy and so I texted Wayne and I was like, you’re going to have all the chicks back on you, know what I’m saying?” said Nicki. “Because when this video comes out, he looks like art, he looks like a piece of art all tatted up, all sexy, black and beautiful.”
