Nicki Minaj sure knows how to show off her assets.

In the brand new video for “Starships," which premiered Thursday night, the rapper sets an out-of-this world beach party into motion as a giant UFO flying high above Hawaii beams a green-haired, bikini-clad Minaj onto the shore.

Complete with waterfalls and a clan of tribal tattooed dancing men, the clip is the definitition of over-the-top as the Trinidad-born beauty is shown sultrily writhing in the sand, her famous derriere exposed for all to see. 

Directed by Anthony Mandler (Rihanna's "Take a Bow," Fergie's "Big Girls Don't Cry"), the video seems to have spared no expense what with its sweeping shots of exotic volcanic mountaintops and sparkling tropical waterfalls to the kaleidoscopic visual effects spliced in between Minaj’s wardrobe and wig changes.
