Nicki Minaj goes samurai in new 'Your Love' video: Watch here

Okay, her first single was a dud. But Nicki Minaj is slicing the competition to pieces with her second try, the Annie Lennox-sampling “Your Love.” A slow cut about a guy whose affection she’d do anything for, it’s currently No. 1 on the Billboard rap songs chart.

This morning Nicki released its video. In it she plays a samurai in training who falls for her sensei. The only problem is that one of her her classmates has too. After going through about three wigs, the battle for his love begins. Check out the video after to jump to see who wins.

What do you think of the video? Let us know.

  • TeamMinaj

    Anybody who thinks this video stupid must be out of their damn mind this is a classic!!!!!

    • Nick Combs

      I don’t know if i would call it a classic . . . but as far as Nicki is concerned, she could’ve done a black-n-white video with her in a leotard dancing with two drag queens and would STILL like the video!

  • The Tay

    GREAT VIDEO! Most artist keep it simple she went the extra mile definitely, I’m not the biggest Nicki fan but she’s proving to a lot of people that the ‘harajuku barbie’ movement is working. She’s making the industry remodel itself, and become way more colorful. Yet once again, amazing job Nicki!

    Mediocre rapper, terrible song. She’s a pretty girl, though.

  • Coltrane Da Don

    She should stick to modeling. The music isn’t just working. This a good song though I aint gonna front. But she intimidates lil wayne to much. The whole young money sound like lil wayne

    • nicky

      • Mann

        I think you mean “The music JUST isn’t working” and I also think you mean she “IMITATES” lil wayne TOO much. I’m just saying…but ok…Good job Nicki.

  • @dennang

    Looks like their budget at Mood was pretty high!

  • d.wright

    Ayo nicki went dumb hard in this one this video was mad creative…

  • Fatima

    I love Nicki. I don’t think she ever intended this to be a single (it leaked and got popular) but she did it justice. I prefer her when she’s crazier, but this is a nice side to her.

    I think it is a hot video.I love the song because it so different then what’s on the radio now. I rather hear this song on the radio then other trash that’s been playing lately. Love the creativity on this. thunmb up

    Once again black women acting stupidly over a man. Sigh. It’s a cute vid though and I can’t get the song out of my head.
