Nicki Minaj shows us all that she is the black Barbie in the fun new music video for the song “Super Bass.” Originally “Super Bass” was only a deluxe song for her album, Pink Friday sold on ITunes. In fact the song was not included on the album’s edited version also sold on  ITunes. As Nicki’s popularity as a Pop star continued to grow, Young Money/Cash Money/Universal Motown opted to release it as the official 5th single from the album in early April. In many ways the song has been considered to be more popular than others that were included on the album. Also stars like Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez have been seen online rapping and dancing along with the song!

The Kane produced song has a up beat rhythm with a very catchy Pop hook sang with the help of singer/song writer, Ester Dean. Ester is best known as a writer that is also an artist part of Polow Da Don’s Zone 4 camp over at Interscope Records. This has allowed her to write with artists like, Robin Thicke, Keri Hilson, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears and many others. As a performer Ester is featured on soundtracks like More Than A Game and Rio , both from Interscope Records.  

“Super Bass”‘s music video keeps up with the album’s “Pink Friday”girly fun theme. In the video directed by Sanaa Hamri, Nicki resembles what could be thought of as a “black Barbie.” It is very colorful and full of eye candy!. It was originally set to premiere on April 27th, on BET’s, 106th & Park, but was later made the MTV Jams’ “Jam Of The Week” recently Now that it is out online, we can finally show it to you!
