Nicki Minaj is a red party bird in her new video for “Pound the Alarm,” which is totally getting us stoked for Toronto’s Caribbean Carnival this weekend. Filmed in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, the video opens during the daytime with some steel drums. By nighttime, the fireworks are going off.
The Benny Boom-directed video is like a colourful mashup of feathers and fire breathers with beautiful views of the coastline.
The track is from Minaj’s second album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. Right now, “Pound the Alarm” is at Number 39 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart.
