The video to Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” is slithering ever-closer to its big reveal.
The hip hop artist has stayed true to her word with the release on iTunes of her latest track which, as previously reported, had been delayed by a week and ended up leaking early.
As a treat to keep her fans sweet, the rapper has also posted a preview of the “Anaconda” clip on Instagram. It’s a sweaty affair, set in a mock-up jungle with Nicki and four barely-dressed lady friends posing and twerking. A sample lifted from Sir Mix-A-Lot’s 1992 hit “Baby’s Got Back” accompanies the action.
According to Nicki, fans can expect the full video before month’s end.
