EXCLUSIVE: We Spoke To Nicki Minaj's Glam Squad On Her Sizzling 'Rack It Up' Video Look

Plus, style deets. There was lots of latex...

Nicki Minaj has been teasing us with images from her latest music video, “Rake It Up,” with Yo Gotti since July and finally we get to see the finished product.   

The much anticipated video was released today on Tidal (sorry, YouTubers!), and it was worth the wait! BET got the exclusive on everything hair, makeup and wardrobe in the video and trust us, it was on point! Here is a clip of the video:

We have all the style deets for the hottest looks; are you ready to Rake It Up?

Styled by fashion stylist Maher Jridi, you’d have to be raking up some serious dough to rock the looks Nicki wore in the music video.

Dressed in mostly latex, Nicki was shown rocking a Wonder Cup Top w/ Belt ($300) along with matching Mini Skirt ($172) by Atsu Kokudo, who specializes in couture latex rubber fashions. 

She is also spotted in a Restricted Zigzag Cup Bondage Bra ($241), High Waist Briefs ($83) and custom straps in bubblegum pink, also by Atsu Kokudo.

In the video, Nicki even raced with Blac Chyna, who styled in a custom latex look by L.A. ROXX. Yes, more latex!

We spoke exclusively with the makeup artist for SixKLA, Sheika Daley, about the inspiration behind the colorful makeup looks in the video:

“We were going for a Stepford wife’s look, but still in true "Barb" style. Very sexy! Her signature cat-eye with a soft pouty pink [eyeshadow] worked really well with the overall theme of the video.”

Her complete Barbie beat took about an hour and half to complete. Sheika used MAC Cosmetics for her brows, lashes by Elora Lane, Tom Ford foundation, NARS blush and Dior lipstick, and Nicki's iconic cat-eyes were made using Mally Beauty liner. 

We were also happy to see that Nicki was back to her colorful Barbie ways with fun hair by celebrity hairstylist Tokyo Stylez.
