Barbie’s back. Nicki Minaj has been keeping a low profile lately, but she returns for the new year with a new video for “Hard White,” a standout off last year’s Queen album.
The Queen rules her kingdom of darkness in the sinister clip. The self-proclaimed “bad guy” takes her seat on a throne while presiding over her zombie-like subjects. She switches up her look several times, donning a metallic outfit in one scene and a snakeskin headdress in another.
“Partying in Paris, these bitches is embarrassed / ‘Cause they know I’m the queen, I still didn’t pick an heiress / Mirror, mirror, who’s the fairest?” asks Nicki.
“Hard White” is the latest Queen song to receive a visual following “Ganja Burn,” “Barbie Dreams,” “Bed,” “Chun-Li,” and “Good Form.”
