Name a better duo, I’ll wait
Four eventful weeks ago, Nicki Minaj dropped her new single with Ariana Grande, “Bed,” which is already on its way to becoming the song of the summer. Since the single dropped, Minaj has teased clips and screenshots from the video, which features Minaj as a “precious” mermaid! All that’s to say Minaj finally dropped the video in its entirety on Friday, and it’s so much better and much more different than expected as there are barely any beds in sight.
First off, in the teaser, Minaj and Grande frolic on the beach (Minaj also flaps her mermaid tail), have a giant bubble party, and do some twerking — all the makings of a quality music video!
But in the real music video, there are zero bubbles, which is a missed opportunity IMO. Regardless, the official video is still a three-minute cinematic masterpiece full of literal beach waves, pastel crimped hair, Ariana’s signature ponytail, football player Odell Beckham Jr., and a man that’s definitely not Pete Davidson.
But all is not lost on the bubble party because Nicki said there’s another music video for the song that she might drop this week.
One more thing; there r 2 #BedVideo edits, as there were 2 directors involved. You’ll see the first today. 😛🎀🎁 also, it won’t be on vevo for like another 24 hours. You’ll see it on YouTube until then. I’ll prob release the other edit in a week. Idk. 💭🦄🧜🏽♀️🎀 🛏
