In 20 days, Nicki Minaj is set to unleash her sophomore effort ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’.

And so as to give the set one last push ahead of its April 3rd arrival, the Young Money major jetted out to Hawaii to shoot the video for the LP’s current single ‘Starships’.

The Pop flavoured cut currently sits at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100; a number set to rise on the back strong radio play and its upcoming visual – which judging by the pics above and below is a major production.

We’re not entirely sold on the song (though we don’t deem it as criminal as some folk). However, credit where it’s due. Ms. Minaj is making it rain and pour. More power to her.

Peep more pics below, via Nicki Daily

    Only female working? Err one else is lazy?Dont speak for other female rappers because you dont know whats happening. Its take time before an artist material comes to light due to the creative process. And if you did your research u would know that lil kim is about to release album and trina is currently workin on hers to be released this summer also. So please dont speak of what you dont know. And Newsflash….nicki isnt a rapper anymore. Shes a wanna-be pop singer…

    Why waste so much of your labels money (that you have to pay back eventually) on a mediocre song :/

    l cant wait for the video,she better hurry up because …
    Starships is really OK,nothing major;katy has nothing to worry about

    @Siberian
    Dont waste your time.People talk s*** but where was the h** before Lil wayne money comes in the pic? She is where she is because of her puppetmasters’s money.

    Alexandra burke,teairra mari,kat deluna ….. are all working hard but you see it aint paying off.

    @siberian prince – yea but none of them albums is gonna sell tho

    Trina like are you serious that girl flop all the time it’s embarrassing.

    Lil Kim will probley do alright in sells but nicki will always be more popular to the mainstream audience. Kim had her time

    The iggy Alzealia, azealia banks, kreayshawn, missy,
    Will not do the numbers they will probley do this..

    Iggy sells 5,000

    Banks sells 4,000

    Kreayshawn sells 2,000 Cus she sucks that bad

    Missy will sell 18,000

    Simple as that

    Its all about the billboard hits iTunes top 10
    Radio hits and none of them female rappers have that now
    Only nicki f****** Minaj

    Goodbye

    its not all abt the billboard its abt the loyalty of fanbase i do believe missy have a strong fan base total # of twitter followers,facebook likes does not count when it comes to album sales if nicky fans a loyal she will do great #s rihanna is a perfect example of what i am try to say she does have heaps of twitter followers and i am sure 80% just follow her coz she tweets a lot but they are not her fans thats why her album sales sucks

    Looks like it’ll be good. And management is glad to invest money when there’s going to be a return.

    We’re still talking about Kat DeLuna?

    I liked her first album but realistically folks just aren’t feeling her. It happens. same with Nicole Scheringer, sometimes you just can’t get that audience. You can work hard but if not enough people are interested in your work then you don’t get very far. Sucks cause I did like her first album.

    Alexandra Burke def. Has promise but unfortunately I think Teairra’s time is up too. She’s going to hav trouble finding an audience as well.

    Nicole scherzinger is not serious about her craft.she is everywhere at once…shooting movies,at tv shows but not promoting her album.

    People singles flops ya know? it happens to the best of them (aguilera,beyonce,jlo..)are their time up? no.

    Just get the right people at the right time.The girls l named even already had a chance but kat deluna,alex etc neva got the chance to become huge superstars.

    Kat deluna is doing her thing.

    Nicki is smart (smarter than shanell for sure) but she is at a good place.That’s why she is where she is.

    So because we don’t see pictures of the other girls, that means their not working. There are some real smart cookies up this early. I knew A.Banks is set to release a video for liquorice soon, Kim is readying singles, Bratt juust droped a song, Ms Hill droped a song at a live show and that s*** is raw, iggy droped a new song at one of her live shows. So the other girls aren’t working, oh okay. We just never hear about it on this site.

    Sorry, no, she looks ridiculous from the side. Maybe in front in looks better but her outfit looks cheap and ugly. Anyways, I hope the video is good. The song is okay.

    If you havent noticed, all of nickis hit songs are written for her. Check the credits lol. Do your reasearch! She isnt a lyricist. And when she tries to write her own songs, they flopped HARD.” Roman in moscow” only reached 64 on the chart. “Stupid h**” only reached 81. FAIL. So the label got scared and released her commercial pop single starships. She is slowly geard towards pop when she is hailed as a female rapper? Im confused. She sounds like Britney Spears. Im not a hater im just speakin facts. I love nicki but i need a real female rapper not a put together ginmick just to sell records.
