Nicki Minaj says new video is an ode to strippers

Nicki Minaj has said that the video for her new song 'Beez in the Trap' is dedicated to strippers.

The 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' star told MTV that she used to perform in strip clubs back in the day and she added that she feels like they housed some of her "most die-hard fans".

As a result, Minaj took to honouring her "girls in the club" in the video and used the promo clip to thank them for their support. She said:

"When I was doing my mixtapes, I would perform in strip clubs, I would perform in clubs and it was just like some of my most die-hard fans would be in these places."

She continued: "I wanted to kinda like honour them - kinda honour all my girls in the club and just say, 'Thank you for the support'. When I see the strippers and all of that, they always show me love, so I wanted to kinda make a video around them."

As previously reported, Minaj's new album 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' is currently sitting pretty at the top of the UK albums chart, displacing Madonna's 'MDNA' from the top spot.
