Chart-topping rhyme-spitters Nicki Minaj and Big Sean are kicking it in the newest ad from Adidas for their Adidas Originals campaign. The duo are sporting their colorful wares emblazoned with the global brand’s logo in their respective scenes.
In the commercial, we see Minaj in New York sporting a puffy coat, pink tights and matching colorful sneakers from Jeremy Scott’s apparel collection. Meanwhile, Big Sean is taking pictures with fans in Adidas gear. The spot also features Chicago Bulls player Derrick Rose, Sky Ferreira and K-Pop group 2NE1.
You also might be familiar with the ad’s theme song — it’s Minaj’s ‘Masquerade’ from her album ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.’ “‘Masquerade’ to me, feels like the Olympics. When Adidas came to me, they mentioned the Olympics,” Minaj tells Rolling Stone about the campaign’s soundtrack. “They mentioned maybe having a performance at the Olympics, and I just put my brain into the mindframe of, ‘What does a champion feel like? What is the inner conversation of a champion?’ The song is about feeling inspired to win and to never give up and I feel like the Adidas campaign, that’s what it’s really about: giving people hope and you know, that’s what I wanted to convey in the song.”
Minaj herself is working on a perfume collection that she hopes to have in stores by September. The Young Money princess also has a clothing line in the works that she promises will put Lil Wayne‘s apparel company, Trukfit, out of business. “I’m trying to launch that next year,” she says. “We have the designs, the designers, all of that stuff. We’re just looking for a place and deciding where we’re gonna go with the brand. We’ve had a couple offers from a lot of big players.”
“I’m so super proud of [Lil Wayne]. I feel like there’s nothing he can’t do. Everything he does, he wins at it,” Minaj continues. “His clothing line — my guy friends, you know, are already rocking Trukfit. It’s interesting because things really happen overnight nowadays but, best believe, when my clothing line comes, I’m going to blow him out the park and he’s probably going to be coming asking me for a job.”
