If you thought listening to Pink Friday 2: Roman’s Revenge was a confounding experience, just wait until you feast your eyes upon Nicki Minaj’s video for her latest single, “Right By My Side.” For starters, although the song is a collaboration with Chris Brown, the leading man in the clip ends up being none other than…Nas?
If that wasn’t out of left field enough for you, try figuring out whether the appearance amounts to a surprising coup or an epic fail for Nasir (between his hilarious facial expressions and Nicki bouncing around in his arms, I’m having trouble deciding for myself). I haven’t even gotten to Nicki’s ever-lightening skin tone or Chris Breezy trying to sneak his nose-ring-wearing self into the picture. It’s all too much.
Somewhere Drake is watching with this expression on his face.
