From the moment Nicki Minaj released the Rick James-sampling “Super Freaky Girl,” it seemed destined for a blockbuster music video, and today, that visual treatment has finally arrived. Directed by Joseph Kahn, the new clip casts Nicki in the roles of both the author of the track’s 1981 inspiration and its namesake, alternately donning James’ famous perm and a hot pink Barbie wig.
“Super Freaky Girl” has already made Nicki Minaj the first solo female rapper since Ms. Lauryn Hill to score a number one Billboard Hot 100 debut, and the new video puts it in position to reach even higher levels of success. Watch it above.
