UPDATE: The over-the-top "Anaconda" video is finally here! Watch it in full above.
Original Story (8/4/2014): Nicki Minaj caught everyone's attention with the scintillating, revealing cover for her "Anaconda" single, and now we're seeing that the artwork is just as noteworthy as its accompanying video and the song itself.
"Anaconda" officially dropped, and Nicki shared a sneak peek of the video via Instagram this morning. In the clip, we hear the iconic beat of Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back," except it's remixed and reworked to Nicki's liking. The babies in Nicki's video got plenty of back (just like her Minajesty on the single's cover itself!), and it looks like "Anaconda" takes place in a perfectly Amazonian setting complete with lush vegetation, bamboo huts and a turntable sporting a pineapple.
The title of the track is starting to make a lot more sense, and we can't wait to see the finished product when the video is officially released. Is it Pink Print o'clock yet? Listen to "Anaconda" below and watch this space for Nicki's next video.
