Nicki Minaj Splashes Colors Through 'Freedom'

Simple new clip blossoms from stark black and white to full palette

Just when you thought Nicki Minaj's videos couldn't get any wilder, the Young Money rapper throws a curveball with this comparatively straightforward new clip for "Freedom," from Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. The video fits the mid-tempo, introspective cut like a glove as we see Minaj getting contemplative in various settings – amid wreckage in the middle of the desert, trekking through the woods, atop her throne – while the black-and-white color scheme slowly morphs until it's bursting with color.
