Nicki Minaj And Rihanna To Preview Video For 'fly' During Vma Pre-Show
Even though it is still unknown when the full version of the long-awaited video for Nicki Minaj and Rihanna’s joint venture, 'Fly', will finally be premiered, MTV US has gained exclusive rights to broadcast a sneak peek of the video...
The video for 'Fly' will show during a special pre-show, hosted by Selena Gomez, for the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards on August 28.
The video, which Miss Minaj has described as "epic", was filmed in January, but was withheld from being released until after Minaj had released 'Super Bass' as a single and had completed all of the relevant promotional work.
The video has been directed by Sanaa Hamri, whose previous credits include Prince’s ‘Musicology’ and ‘Stole’ by Kelly Rowland.
Minaj is impressed with the end result and is predicting big things for the video: “The Rihanna video is a freakin’ epic movie. We’re going to save the world in more ways than one with the video.”
