Ciara, Nicki Minaj Pay Homage to Michael Jackson in 'I'm Out' (Video)
Ciara enlisted Nicki Minaj for the music video for her latest single, "I'm Out," and the result is Michael and Janet Jackson's futuristic "Scream" collaboration-meets-TLC's "No Scrubs," which featured a rap from the late Lisa "Lefteye" Lopes, a '90s predecessor of the brash, eccentric Minaj.
The clip was released at Sunday's BET Awards, where Minaj won the trophy for best female hip-hop artist. Ciara, meanwhile, will drop her eponymous fifth studio album on Friday; she previously teamed up with Minaj on the track "I'm Legit," off the rapper's 2012 album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded -- The Re-Up.
