March 17, 2010 by Danny M


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.

Drake Readies Prince-Like First Single Shut It Down With The-Dream

So we have the news on Drake’s upcoming first single which will be called “Shut It Down” and will feature vocals by The-Dream. No, Dream and Tricky are not behind the production of the song though. It belongs to Harlem based producer Omen.

The idea for the track, which Omen describes as a “Prince-like, powerful song,” is about “empowering females. Drake said he had a song idea called “Shut It Down” aimed at club-going females.

When they go out and they get dressed up and put their makeup on and get their hair done, they have the capacity to shut the club down,” says Omen.

The video will be directed by Hype Williams. Drake’s debut album Thank Me Later is currently scheduled for a February 2010 release.
