25 best music video looks of the year (so far)

“Bed” – Nicki Minaj feat. Ariana Grande

The song is about a bed, and yet the video takes place almost entirely at the beach. Does it make sense? Not one bit! But Nicki is pulling serious beach babe looks, and how can we not give her mermaid tail the recognition it deserves?

Nicki isn’t afraid to be daring and revealing, which she has proved many times in the past, and this video is no different. She sports a sheer white jumpsuit by the pool, with some carefully placed appliques to cover up the goods, a gold chain nestled in her cleavage, and some massive hoop earrings. If that look wasn’t enough to stop your heart, she also strikes a pose in a gorgeous turquoise bodysuit with a flowy matching robe trailing behind her. The entire ensemble is complemented by the stunning beach view behind her, which really is the best accessory.

And we have to mention the mermaid scene, where Nicki is in a full tail, rolling around as the tide splashes against her perfect body. Nicki is rocking green hair styled with beachy waves as she rolls around in the sand completely topless. Her tail is seriously enviable, because who hasn’t dreamed of being a mermaid at some point in their life?

Of course, Ariana Grande is also in the video, but her simple white ensemble just can’t compete with all the punch that Nicki is packing with her steamy outfits.

The entire video makes us wish we were at some beautiful beach-side resort being fed strawberries by some random cuties, and what more could you want from a music video?
