Watch: Nicki Minaj’s Epic ‘Ganja Burn’ Video

 

In the new video for the “Ganja Burn” single – from her latest album Queen – Nicki Minaj plays a royal empress crawling through the sands of a fiery desert, surrounded by warriors / highly muscular dancers.

Directed by Mert & Marcus, the video follows a biblical sort of story, beginning by telling the tale of a queen who lets raiders destroy her empire before rising up in revenge. It culminates with Minaj posing just like the album cover. 

She’s previously released videos for “Bed (feat. Ariana Grande),” “Chun-Li,” and “Barbie Tingz.”

Take a look at “Ganja Burn” below.
