It could be her new music video or it may just be another magazine photo shoot but Nicki Minaj sizzles in these new behind-the-scenes photos she shared on Instagram.
Showing off her incredible body in a series of barely-there black outfits and pasties, the Young Money darling’s latest look is a lot tamer than we’ve became used to seeing. Minaj reveals her natural beauty with minimal make-up and a slick black ponytail as she strikes some fierce poses in the middle of a desert, snapped by Grizzleemusic.
Our immediate thoughts upon seeing the pictures were that the photos were stills from the rapper’s new music video but she isn’t giving away any details on Twitter on Instagram. Leaving her character-based “Pink Friday” era behind the “High School” MC will focus on her hip-hop roots on her forthcoming album, due out this year, so her makeover couldn’t come at a better time.
The 31-year-old has a big year ahead of her and has been hard at work in the studio recording simultaneously for her third studio album and Young Money‘s upcoming compilation album “Rise Of An Empire“. She will also have her first major acting role in The Other Woman alongside Cameron Diaz which will be released this April.
Bring it, Nicki!
UPDATE: These photos were taken on set of the video for Nicki’s new single, “Lookin Ass Nigga“. Watch the video here!
