Va Va Voom – Nicki Minaj: MUSIC VIDEO REVIEW

Va Va Voom Nicki Minaj music video

Nicki Minaj is back with a music video for her song “Va Va Voom” to feature on her upcoming “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded -The Re-Up” album due to drop November 19, 2012.

Nicki Minaj has been very busy releasing music videos from Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.” Maybe there is something unique to Caribbean people that brings on this extreme work ethic *sideyes Rihanna.*

The Barbz are going wild for all these videos – but a part of me wishes Minaj would spend a little more time on really swagging these videos out pre-release. According to Perez Hilton the video for “Va Va Voom” was shot a year ago and Nicki herself was not satsified with it but didn’t have time to re-shoot it.

Music video synopsis

“Va Va Voom” is a role play of  famous fairytales such as Snow White, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty. Minaj plays the perfect princess and damsel in distress ready to be saved by the handsome prince.

Visuals

In true Nicki Minaj style the wigs, outfits and makeup were notably fabulous. My favourite outfit of the bunch is the Evil Queen black  curve hugging dress – I’m a fan of seeing Nicki with her dark hair a rarity given her love for bright lacefronts these days.

There’s not really a cohesive plot told through the visuals of “Va Va Voom” and I can understand why Nicki was dissatisfied with it. She strikes me as a perfectionist and this undoubtedly was not one of her best videos to date.

I can let this underwhelming performance slide this one time only because I’m a closet Barb.

That M.A.C Pink Friday lipstick you were wearing – saved you Nicki. 

   

 

 Lyrics

“Va Va Voom”

Nicki Minaj

Verse:
Just met a boy, just met a boy when
He could come inside of my play pen
Cause he look like a superstar in the makin’
So I think that I’m going in for the takin’

Hear through the grapevine that he cakin’
We could shoot a movie, he could the tapin’
Boom boom pow, this thing be shakin’
I ain’t even tryin’ to find out who he datin’

Bridge:
Cause I know that he got a wife at home
But I need just one night alone
If you keep playing those good ole’ games
I’m a runaway-eh, I’m a runaway-eh-eh

Pre Chorus:
I-I-I wanna give you one last option
I-I-I wanna give you one last chance
If-if you’re looking for the main attraction
Just hold on tight and let me do my dance

Chorus:
If you want it, I’m gonna be
Va Va Voom Voom
If you got it, you got it
You got that boom boom

If you want it, I’m gonna be
Va Va Voom Voom
If you got it, you got it
You got that boom boom

Verse:
Just met a boy, just met a boy when
He could become my little problem
Cause he look like he modellin’ clothes in Dublin
So I think that he gettin’ that Green a Goblin

Heard through the grapevine that he hang low
We could shoot a movie, could bang like rambo
Boom boom pow, this thing’s so bingo
Wondering if he can understand my lingo

Bridge:
Cause I know, he got a wife at home
But I need just one night alone
If you keep playing those good ole’ games
I’m a runaway-eh, I’m a runaway-eh-eh

Pre Chorus:
I-I-I wanna give you one last option
I-I-I wanna give you one last chance
If-if you’re looking for the main attraction
Just hold on tight and let me do my dance

Chorus:
If you want it, I’m gonna be
Va Va Voom Voom
If you got it, you got it
You got that boom boom

If you want it, I’m gonna be
Va Va Voom Voom
If you got it, you got it
You got that boom boom

Boy I’m in this club slow mo
Don’t mind if I do
And I can tell you’re feelin’ me from the jump
I wanna ride too
You got that hot shit, Boy ya’ blessed
Let me feel up on yo’ chest
Flex In’
You da Man, You da man One hundred Grand
The same ole’ game blow
Yes I play it everywhere
Come baby go there, stay there
Let me show how I run it to the playground
COME AND GET THIS VA VA VOOM VOOOOOM

Pre Chorus:
I-I-I wanna give you one last option
I-I-I wanna give you one last chance
If-if you’re looking for the main attraction
Just hold on tight and let me do my dance

Chorus:
If you want it, I’m gonna be
Va Va Voom Voom
It you got it, you got it
You got that boom boom

If you want it, I’m gonna be
