After Months of waiting, fans will finally catch a glimpse of Nicki Minaj’s “Fly” music video featuring Rihanna. The Young Money Femcee will unveil a “first look” at the Sanaa Hamri-directed visual during pre-show of the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards on August 28.

The video for “Fly” was filmed back in January (2011) but only the above photo was previously released to fans.

“We’re going to save the world in more ways than one with the video and that’s all I can say about that,” Minaj previously told E! Online. “I love Ri-Ri! I mean, when she’s not grabbing my ass she’s a sweet girl.”

“Fly” is taken from Minaj’s debut album ‘Pink Friday’ which debuted at No. 2 on Billboard 200 album chart.

The MTV VMAs pre-show will be hosted by Selena Gomez this year. The main show will kick off with Lady GaGa as the opening act and other performers include Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Adele and Bruno Mars.

Nicki Minaj “Pink Friday” Tops The Charts!!!

Nicki Minaj crowns the Billboard 200 albums chart for the first time, as her “Pink Friday” set steps 3-1 in its 11th week on the list (45,000; up 18% per Nielsen SoundScan). “Pink” also pushes past the 1 million total sales mark this week — 1,035,000 total since its Nov. 22, 2010 release.

“Pink Friday” initially debuted at No. 2 and has since spent its entire chart life in the top 10.

Minaj’s patient wait for her turn at No. 1 is a rare sight. For the most part, an album is only No. 1 because it debuted there. It’s unusual for a set to climb to the top. Case in point: in 2010, there were 30 albums that hit No. 1, but just one — Lil Wayne‘s “I Am Not A Human Being” — actually rose to the top. Wayne debuted at No. 2 off of just downloads, then fell to No. 16 the next week, only to reach No. 1 the next once the CD version of the album dropped.

YAYYYY!!! That’s wassup! I’m so proud of her and she is really giving it to the haters! The album is grade A and she’s going to have a great 2011! “Moment4Life” is making big moves at urban radio and the Rihanna assisted “Fly” is poised to widen her sphere of popularity with it’s breathy, poppy but still genuine appeal! We some BARBIES OVER HERE!

Nicki Minaj “Pink Friday” To Sell 400k+ & De-Thrown Lauryn Hill???

Also gunning for a big entrance next week is Nicki Minaj‘s debut effort, “Pink Friday,” which is on target to begin with more than 400,000. It could mark the best sales week for a female hip-hop artist since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991. Currently, that record is held by rapper/singer Lauryn Hill‘s “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” which launched with 423,000 in 1998. (The best week for a straight-ahead female emcee was earned by Missy Elliott‘s “Under Construction,” when it bowed with 259,000 in 2002.)

Nicki is the ONLY GIRL in HipHop right now or at least that’s what 50 Cent had to say of Young Money’s first lady in a recent interview. I’m inclined to agree, her album could possibly de-thrown the iconic “Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” (from a sales standpoint at least). This would be a HUGE triumph for her and Lil Wayne, her mentor. “Pink Friday” is one of the best albums I’ve reviewed in a while. That dungeon dragon is on a mission!!! COP IT IMMEDIATELY!!!

Nicki Minaj “Pink Friday” Full Album Review!!!

I love this album!!!!! It’s soooo much more then I thought she was capable. “Right Thru Me” didn’t promise much at all but the album is crammed with ego music like “Roman’s Revenge” and “Did It On Em” and much more vulnerable tracks like “Fly”, “Dear Old Nicki” and “Save Me”. I’m thoroughly surprised and almost reluctantly impressed…

Highlighted Tracks:

* Roman’s Revenge

* Save Me

* Your Love

* Fly

* Moment 4 Life

This album is one of the best hiphop sets I’ve heard in a real long time, like Kanye’s “Graduation” long time. I’m really impressed with her artistry.

She sang way more then I expected and she’s actually got vocals. She’s no Jazmine Sullivan or Alicia Keys but she can carry a tune a few blocks and knows her limits. Which is more then I can say for label mate, Drake…

The production knocks like the muth&%*$# pizza man! Vocals, listenably and writing are nearly perfect. This is a great debut but crossover tracks like “Check It Out”  and “Right Thru Me” water down this home cooked meal. They’re the only stains on the tracklist though…

Nicki is a muth&$$#@& MONSTA! She made an album that not only stands up next to Drake’s “Thank Me Later” but can go toe to toe with “The Carter III” and “The Blueprint III”.. Remarkable!

I was sleeping but I’m officially a fan!

Nicki’s riding high right now! Your Love was a huge hit, her collabo with Will.I.Am is all over the radio and that track with Trey Songz is doing well. Her debut album will hit shelves on November 22nd, the same day as Kanye’s “Good Ass Job” (he’s renamed something foolish but I’m gonna continue to call it “Good Ass Job”) and Hov’s greatest hits collection.. Interesting… Get em NICKI!
