The hair is big and blond, the car is sleek and pink, and the money is green and in abundance. Nicki Minaj shot her first official solo video Monday in Lancaster, California.

While the video set was deep in the desert, it was far from barren. Nicki brought her ladies (extras dressed in pink wigs and showing lots of cleavage), her sexy home girl and some of her musical family.

“The song is called ‘Massive Attack‘, ” she explained. “I’m excited for people to hear me … doing more than one verse. It’s really creative. Shout-out to [songwriter] Sean Garrett. I’ve always loved his style. He really kinda had a great idea of what I wanted to do. I wanted to be theatrical, but I am very serous about what I do. He was able to mesh that together and have a really fun but direct record, if that makes sense. … This video, it’s just, like, monsta. The video is a monsta.”

Drake, Birdman, Garrett and Amber Rose all made the trek for the clip, directed by Hype Williams. Earlier in the afternoon, a helicopter swooped down as Minaj and Rose put pedal to the metal in a pink Lambo.

“I brought my BFF Amber Rose out here,” Nicki said while sitting in her ride. “This is a massive attack. We shot the helicopter scene. Obviously, I had to have a hot-pink Lamborghini. We’re having fun in the car, and we see a freakin’ helicopter chase us. So we get on the walkie-talkie, like, ‘Mayday! Mayday!’ It’s really fashion and beauty shots, and we’re acting like we’re doing something important.

“I kinda always like to do things in an unexpected fashion,” she added. “I didn’t want to shoot the typical new-artist vision. Thank God I have a wonderful label that stands behind me and my vision. I met Hype in a freakin’ airport. I didn’t recognize him without his dreads. We exchanged information, and it happened to be a week before I wanted to shoot a video. I told him the idea. Of course, I had to let Baby and Slim know and hope they would understand my expensive taste. It all came together. Sean Garrett is on the hook.”

Nicki also filmed scenes where she jumps in the mud and crawls through the forest. “It’s just beautiful — the clothes, everything. The ambiance,” she said. “It’s for all the girls that like to play dress-up. They’re gonna love this one.”

“You can expect it to be almost like the soundtrack to a movie,” she explained. “It’s gonna take you somewhere that … it’s kinda gonna tell a story. I didn’t just want to make an album that had a club record, just the obvious. I wanted to paint a very graphic picture. And every record that I’m doing for the album, I can see the stage show, I can see the video. It’s just gonna be big. You can expect it to be big.”
