Nicki Minaj surprised fans by revealing the first of two lyric videos for "Pills N Potions."
This first go is rather literal, as it features snapshots of pills, drinks and neon signs outside bars to highlight the vulnerable hook. It isn’t the most compelling lyric video out there. But it still offers room for interpretation; it would be interesting to see whether the second lyric video riffs off Minaj’s bars about relationships, business and personal, instead.
Minaj’s lyric video dropped without warning, though as she continues to tease the actual "Pills N Potions" video. Reportedly directed by Diane Martel, it appears to be a shadowy, intimate clip of Minaj being alone if not vulnerable. No matter how it turns out, though, "Pills N Potions" has already been a remarkable transformation for the rapper who cemented her place in hip-hop as a "Monster."
