Nicki Minaj - Anaconda

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Nicki Minaj
  • Track: Anaconda
  • Producer: Eric Bellinger, Polow Da Don and Da Internz
  • Album: The Pinkprint

Update: The Colin Tilley-directed, Drake co-starring visuals for Nicki's Anaconda single have been added.

It's never a good thing, at least in terms of sustainability, when the buzz that surrounds your new single only exists because of racy cover artwork. Nicki Minaj, however, would disagree. After setting the internet ablaze upon the release of highly-Photoshopped, bootylicious artwork for her new single, Anaconda, the record for said artwork has surfaced. The creative team of Eric Bellinger, Polow Da Don and Da Internz will garner some of the spotlight, the part that isn't being blocked by the headliner's posterior, for their sampling of Sir Mix-A-Lot's classic single, Baby Got Back. The end result is more Bang Bang than Chi-Raq, but kudos must be given to any artist who can get everyone talking without even releasing a record. Minaj is set to release her latest full-length, The Pink Print, this fall, via Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records.
