Who’s ready for a softer side of Nicki Minaj?

We’ve already seen her tone down her look, but Minaj also seems to be toning it down when it comes to her music too. Well, at least for this debut single from her upcoming third album, The Pink Print.

“Pills N Potions,” despite the title,  is about dealing with somewhat ungrateful folks and people who change, but still acknowledging the love you have for them while getting through the hurt. The video that accompanies the often emotional song is on the trippy side, but still manages to showcase a vulnerable side of the lyricist. There are bunny rabbits smoking cigarettes, tears that come down with a metallic sheen, and how could we forget The Game? The rapper appears alongside her (and at one point she holds his severed head in her arm) in the clip, and the chemistry between them is pretty good, though she spends more time singing/rapping by herself than she does being held by him. But the rapper’s appearance is interesting, considering that he made her his WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday) pick on Instagram a couple of weeks ago. He posted her picture and said,

#WomanCrushWednesday “lil brown skin girl caught my eye…. I thought maybe it was time to give a thug a try” @nickiminaj #Yuhhhh

I guess such public declarations of affection worked out for him…he at least had the chance to be in her new video!

But anywho, this new clip is directed by Diane Martel of “Blurred Lines” and “We Can’t Stop” fame, and it’s definitely a sight to see. Pass or play? Check out the video for yourself and let us know:
