Princess Nokia Pays Homage to Jennifer Lopez in ‘It’s Not My Fault’ Video

“My video symbolizes my mainstream coming of age, just as it did Jennifer’s,” Nokia says

It’s been quite a week for Nineties nostalgia. Following Beabadoobee’s throwback video for “Last Day on Earth,” Princess Nokia pays homage to Jennifer Lopez in “It’s Not My Fault.”

The video is a direct nod to Lopez’s 1999 video for “If You Had My Love,” where Mid90s actor Olan Prenatt watches the rapper on surveillance. The new track is an ode to OnlyFans, a subscription platform used by sex workers.

“My video symbolizes my mainstream coming of age, just as it did Jennifer’s,” Nokia said in a statement. “It symbolizes the average millennial woman, taking control of herself as the subject. I control my narrative and I celebrate my beauty. It’s hyper-futurism and almost 22 years later we are moving into a more interactive era.”

“It’s Not My Fault” was released on Arista; it marks Nokia’s first single on a major label. It follows her hit “I Like Him,” with a video that also had a futuristic theme. Last fall, Nokia spoke with New York Congressperson Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez for Rolling Stone‘s Fridays for Unity video series.
