Days after performing their EDM-meets-rap track at the Billboard Music Awards, David Guetta and Nicki Minaj released the official video for their third collaboration. The energetic visual, which also features Afrojack and Bebe Rexha, sees dramatically dressed tribal dancers contort their bodies into all sorts of positions as revellers join them on a party bus that bears the sign “Department of Recreation”. It’s easy to spot Afrojack as he towers over everyone else at 6ft 10 inches!
The video is basically an artistic desert rave, based on the legendary Burning Man festival with a bit of Mad Max thrown in for fun! Directed by Hannah Lux Davies the video was filmed in a lakebed in El Mirage California, “I’m always really inspired by music festivals and the fashion that follows with that,” Davis told Billboard. “And Burning Man was something that felt like the energy of the song.”
Nicki Mirage, or rather Minaj, appears only as a hologram – her curves and boobs are still on full show though, don’t worry, as is her iconic pink hair.
Hey Mama is the latest cut from Guetta’s album Listen – it reached Nº8 in the UK and Nº22 in the US when it was released in November last year.
