Barbie is back with another double dose. After dropping “Barbie Tingz” and “Chun-Li” at the same time, the Young Money queen serves up both videos at once.
The visual for “Barbie Tingz” was directed by Giovanni Bianco, the creative director for Vogue Italia. The clip focuses on Nicki clones, with exaggerated makeup, animated facial expressions, and copycats all around.
The Steven Klein-directed “Chun-Li,” which became Nicki’s 16th top 10 single on the Hot 100, showcases a tough Nicki in a superhero/dominatrix-inspired ensemble. It’s King Kong? Yes, it’s King Kong.
“Barbie Tingz” and “Chun-Li” are set to appear on Minaj’s forthcoming fourth album. She will perform both tracks on the season finale of “SNL” on May 19.
