Minaj and Migos rapper Quavo look for love in the charming new video
for their song, “She for Keeps.” The track appears on Control the
Streets, Vol. 1, the first mixtape from the Atlanta-based record label,
The Daps and Quavo-directed clip boasts a
candy-coated aesthetic packed with nostalgia. As Quavo unspools
lovestruck bars in his auto-tuned croon, he plays Super Nintendo,
re-pressurizes his Rebook Pumps and chats on a brick-sized flip phone
with Minaj, who twirls the chord of her landline. Minaj later tears
through her clever, braggadocious verse as she brushes off rivals in the
bathroom and meets Quavo for a burger and fries at a Fifties-style
diner, complete with booths built into classic cars.
Control: Control the Streets, Vol. 1 arrived last December. The
compilation also features Cardi B, Offset, Young Thug, Travis Scott, Lil
Yachty and Gucci Mane. This article originally appeared in RollingStone
