I just watched the much anticipated Nicki Minaj video release of “Pound the Alarm”. From the very first second I was transported to as Kees so perfectly calls it “the only place I love”. Trinidad is represented in the beautiful place I always think of it as, with clips of all familiar places and the splendor that is our mas.
The mini Carnival is so perfect in timing as we are in full Carnival band launch season, and there is nothing I can say I don’t like about it! Great job Nicki and Benny Boom.
Trinidad born Nicki Minaj is shooting a video for the track “Pound the Alarm” off her latest “Pink Friday” album.
The video will be shot on her native island and she’s calling all willing masqueraders for a chance to be a part of it. I for one think it’s great, Nicki Minaj always looks like Mas to me, so this call couldn’t be more fitting.
Send an email of yourself in full costume from any Carnival mas band to firstname.lastname@example.org, and be prepared to walk with your costume today if you are chosen.
Good Luck masqueraders! I can’t wait to see the finished product!
