Benny Boom proved he’s here for the ca$h, not the drama by lending his directorial talents to Future x Nicki Minaj’s new “You Da Baddest” music video, months after heading up the video for “You” by Keyshia Cole feat. Remy Ma and French Montana.
Filmed with the stunning backdrop of Miami’s turquoise shores and white sand beaches, Minaj strides through a luxury hotel in a number of striking outfits, each featuring the “No Frauds” rapper in varied states of undress.
Minaj, strutting in diamonds and slinging side-eye leaves the male hotel-goers slack-jawed, gawking and thirsty AF while the women let their hair lose and realize that they too can be the baddest bitch™. While Nicki drops lines like “Bitch, I got that 25 karats on my Patek, I’m ecstatic//Got them blue diamonds dancing in my party, democratic,” hotel maids who could never afford a custom piece from the Swiss master watchmaker drop it down anyway.
Minaj eventually teams up with Future to finish the track on the roof of the hotel with the shoreline stretched to the horizon behind them, elegance and luxury literally dripping like diamonds off of them.
“You Da Baddest” is the latest single from Future’s smash album HNDRXX released just one week after the rapper’s self-titled LP Future.
