Watch Nicki Minaj’s Music Video Melodrama ‘The Pinkprint Movie’

The Weezy-produced short film features "The Crying Game," "Grand Piano," and "I Lied"

A week after the release of her startlingly bare new record The Pinkprint, after teasing it on Twitter earlier in the day, Nicki Minaj released a short film to accompany a handful of the more dramatic tracks on the record, entitled The Pinkprint Movie. Featuring “The Crying Game,” “Grand Piano,” and “I Lied,” three of the swooning tracks from that record’s second half, the nocturnal film paints a stark portrait of romantic dissolution over the course of its 16-minute narrative. Music video superstar Nabil helped executive produce the film, along with Lil Wayne and Birdman, but it was directed by Taylor Cohen and Francesco Carrozzini.
