Last month, Tyga released a new single entitled “Dip” after releasing his new album “Kyoto”. The single got a remix with Nicki Minaj as the featured act and a music video which arrived on Monday, October 29.
The remix of the song finds Nicki subtly referencing her infamous altercation with Cardi B at the Harper’s Bazaar Icons event during the New York Fashion Week. “All that rah-rah never was the icon issue/ Harper’s Bazaar, I’m covering the icon issue,” she spits. “I got issues, yeah, b***h, I got issues W, Vogue, Cosmo.”
Meanwhile, the visuals is inspired by Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson‘s iconic “Scream” video. It features the Trinidadian beauty controlling a Tyga puppet in her hand. Whenever she moves the doll around, the real Tyga will go as controlled. Nicki seems to be oblivious by this though, as she even turns the doll upside down.
The Tyga and Arrad-directed clip also shows the former Young Money labelmates rocking gorgeous outfits. For instance, the “Hookah” rapper decks out in puffer jackets and ski pants while his collaborator flaunts her cleavage in a white puffer gown and matching heart-shaped shades. She additionally wears a Batman-inspired mask.
Nicki talked about the music video in the latest episode of her “Queen” radio show, praising Tyga. “Tyga and I coordinated f***ing well for this video, you would think we put the looks together,” she said. “All we did was put the colors together. The video is clean and fly as f**k. I’ve shot a huge big-budget videos before that didn’t look like that. He’s extremely f***ing talented.”
She continued, “We had a lot of fun with the video. It reminded of shooting ‘FEFE’ with 6ix9ine, and we started late but ended having fun, like true fans.”
