All hail the queen! Nicki Minaj, 35, premiered a fantastic new music video for her song “Ganja Burn” and in addition to showing off her incredible body, it told a powerful story of a royal Nicki and her army getting defeated only to rise again and conquer in the end. The video, which was directed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, starts off with some words about the meaning behind the visuals that are about to be shown and it reveals that Nicki is indeed a queen of an empire. After that empire is overthrown by a close friend, she tricks them into thinking her rest is her death and once she’s built up enough energy again, she rises and is stronger than ever, killing all the evil beings in sight!
The entertaining video shows Nicki prancing around in the sand-filled desert while wearing revealing outfits, including one that frees her bare breasts with jeweled pasties covering her nipples. From dancing in front of a hot and steaming fire to holding a steamy skeleton head, the talented rapper definitely captures our attention in memorable ways and leads us to high anticipation for more. She also takes a moment in the video to recreate the eye-catching cover for her new album Queen.
Before the premiere of “Ganja Burn” Nicki released her new album on Aug. 10 and it made headlines within minutes of her fans hearing the 19 tell-all tracks.

This is culture, this is BIGGIE!!!!! New York!!!! This is FUN. Light hearted fun FUN,” the tweet read.
