Nicki Minaj Makes the Street Her Runway in Adidas Ad
We can’t believe we missed her! While filming her latest video, for Adidas Originals’ “all Originlas represent” campaign, Nicki Minaj walked — rather, worked — the New York City streets in the early hours of the morning, wearing colorful gear from head to toe and letting her song “Masquerade” — recorded especially for Adidas — rock the city. Catch a glimpse of the star’s serious modeling skills in the clip above.
Minaj is just a piece of the puzzle, though; the official video travels across the globe — from Manhattan and Tokyo to Paris and Rio de Janeiro — and includes appearances from rapper Big Sean, NBA player Derrick Rose and designer Jeremy Scott. But personally, we think Minaj more than holds her own against the big guys.
Already big in the beauty world thanks to her M.A.C and OPI deals, with Adidas, the singer makes her first — and we’re guessing, far from last — move into fashion advertising. And we can’t wait to see more.
