Nicki Minaj looks stunning in Trinidad for the "Red Ruby Da Sleeze" music video.

Nicki Minaj is fresh off of the release of her latest single, “Red Ruby Da Sleeze,” which undoubtedly marked the return of the Queen of Rap. Though 2022 produced a handful of singles, including her first solo chart-topping record, “Super Freaky Girl,” she was warming up to come through strong. Her latest single evidently proved that she was returning to the fold for good with a follow-up to Queen expected to arrive in the near future.

Nicki’s getting things in order before she comes through with her next album. At the time she released the single, she also confirmed that she was launching her own record label. So far, she’s signed Tate Kobang, Nana Fofie, Rico Danna, and London Hill to the imprint, though it seems like she’s holding out until they make their official debut. Still, everything is in place for Nicki to come through and take control of the summer.

Nicki Minaj Previews “Red Ruby Da Sleeze” Music Video

Nicki began revving up for the release of “Red Ruby Da Sleeze” during her trip to Trinidad for Carnival. During her stay, she performed for her fans and even shared some teaser footage to promote her latest record. However, it appears that she used her time in Trinidad to film the music video in its entirety. Nick took to Instagram where she shared a snippet of the video where she looks absolutely stunning as she overlooks the seaside at a luxurious estate.

At this point, Nicki Minaj hasn’t confirmed a release date for the music video. However, it could come sometime soon and perhaps, propel the song higher on the Billboard Hot 100. “Red Ruby Da Sleeze” already made a mark on the charts as it debuted at #13. Additionally, Nicki Minaj tied Drake for the third most #1 songs in U.S. Digital Song Sales with the success of “Red Ruby Da Sleeze.” Maybe, the Lumidee-sampling single helps Nicki secure her second solo #1 on the Hot 100. Check out the preview of Nicki Minaj's upcoming music video for "Red Ruby Da Sleeze" above and sound off with your thoughts in the comments. Are you excited for Nicki's next project?
