The internet exploded last night. Did you feel the quake? Did you look to the heavens and wonder if angels or asteroids had crashed through the atmosphere and landed outside of your door? I know you felt it.
How could you not feel the aftershocks of the “Feeling Myself” video? Yes, I’m unabashedly, healthily obsessed with Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé. I know I’m not alone. I know I’m not the only one who’s had this song on repeat since the PinkPrint dropped. It sits right in between “Get On Your Knees” and “Only,” Nicki’s mega hit with Wayne and Drake. Nicki’s flow is slick, confident, dripping with everything that makes her the Untouchable Queen of Rap.
Bitches ain’t got punchlines or flow. I have both and an empire also.
It’s that heavy bass thump, the snare, the simple whistling sample in the background and some well placed snaps that get you going. And then Nicki just drops bars as Beyoncé stops the world and the world fucking stops. “Feeling Myself” was fire before the video dropped. Shit now, now, the earth is aflame for the Nicki/Bey friendship canon.
Everything works. It’s another simple video, like Bey’s 7/11; just some gorgeous friends hanging out in ridiculous fly gear, bamboo earrings on 1000, attitude on deck, and “Oh my god, don’t you wanna ride with us” type of video.
I’m with it. All day shipping. Can Nicki & Bey be in the next Mad Max movie cuz then I’d literally explode and it’d be the happiest day of my life. And even though I’ve been a vegetarian for two years, I’m fiendin’ for a cheeseburger and fries with a side of Nicki & Bey.
