Nicki Minaj Releases Visually Stunning 'I Am Your Leader' Clip (Video)
Rick Ross and Cam’ron lend verses to the hip-hop track.
Nicki Minaj easily boasts two core fan bases: those who love “Starships” and those who hate “Starships.” For the latter, the first lady of Young Money Cash Money has released her latest music video.
The clip for “I Am Your Leader” is visually stunning, featuring bright colors, neon lights and slightly off-kilter geometric shapes in the background. The whole set takes place inside a pink mailbox, where Minaj hangs with Rick Ross and Cam’ron in a bizarre, gothic, shape-shifting house.
The video, directed by Colin Tilley, premiered on VEVO on Friday prompting enthusiastic response from fans on Twitter.
“Creative, Bold, Fun, Artistic and still all YOU! lovelovelove the video soooo much!!!” gushed one fan.
According to Billboard, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, which features "I Am Your Leader," climbs the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart this week from No. 10 to No. 6, selling 253,000 copies.
What do you think of the video? It’s a far cry from “Pound the Alarm,” but maybe that’s a good thing. Watch below.
