After some confusion regarding the next official single from Nicki Minaj’s critically acclaimed The Pinkprint, Minaj chose to keep the energy up and treat fans with “The Night Is Still Young.” The single hit radio in April, and Minaj has promised that a video will be following shortly. In fact, the visual’s official release may be closer than originally expected. Nicki Minaj hopped on social media today to tease fans with images from the video shoot for “The Night Is Still Young.”
“’The Night Is Still Young video’ coming soon” Minaj tweeted out to her followers. The rap diva also shared a download link for the single as well as several images from the video shoot. In the pictures Nicki Minaj is seen posing with long pink hair in a pair of Marc Jacobs boots and a sheer pastel pink dress. In one of the scenes Minaj is posing alongside a group of dancers in the midst of choreography.
It is unclear how Minaj will choose to release the music video to the general public, though it is possible that she will release it as exclusive content to TIDAL. Although the streaming service has been plagued with issues since it’s official release earlier this year, Nicki Minaj has continued supporting the project on her social media accounts.
“The Night Is Still Young” is the sixth official single from The Pinkprint and has been well received by fans and critics. The single will also be the first supported with a music video since the release of “Only” in 2014. Since then both “Bed of Lies” and “Truffle Butter” were only supported with live performances and lyric videos. The Pinkprint has already given birth to Nicki Minaj’s highest charting single in America when “Anaconda” peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2014.
Nicki Minaj recently finished the first leg of her The Pinkprint Tour with an April 12 performance in Glasgow, Scotland. The show will resume on May 30 with a performance at Las Vegas before traveling across North America, Europe, South America, and Oceania. The “Anaconda” siren is also set to make an appearance at the Billboard Music Awards on May 17. During the show, Minaj is expected to hop onstage to perform “The Night Is Still Young” as well as her David Guetta assisted “Hey Mama.”
