Nicki Minaj hangs with puppets and teases her fellow rappers in her new video for “ Barbie Dreams .”
“Barbie Dreams” is the third music video off her fourth studio album Queen. The Notorious B.I.G.-sampling follows the videos of “Chun Li” , “Ganja Burns” and “Bed” and the pre-Queen single “Barbie Tingz.
The colorful, Hype Williams-directed video opens with a puppet nonchalantly introducing the proceedings before Nicki takes over. The video features a number of hip-hop stars as puppets with the likes of Tekashi 6ix9ine, DJ Khaled, Drake as puppets.
The song instantly became a fan favourite when Nicki dropped the album Queen. Shortly after the release Nicki took to social media to reassurance fans that the song was not a diss. In the song she mentions a lot of the Hip Hop industry’s heavyweights from Lil Wayne , 50 Cent to American Football player Odel Beckham.
