Not gonna lie — we’re definitely thinking about booking a direct plane ticket to Trinidad after watching Nicki Minaj’s new video for “Pound The Alarm“. The whole video is essentially a tourist advertisement for the gorgeous Carribean island, with its shots of sprawling mountainsides, fresh markets, and of course the Trinidad and Tobago Carnival. As Nicki prances around her hometown with her fellow feather-clad dancers, it’s hard to resist the urge to head over to our local craft store, buy as much plumage as possible, and jet down to the south isles for some Trinidadian frolic and fun. Nicki’s anthemic chorus “Oh, oh, oh, come fill my glass up a little more / We ’bout to get up, and burn this floor / You know we getting hotter and hotter / Sexy and hotter, let’s shut it down / Pound the alarm!” sets the perfect tone for their Carnival party — we bet after watching the clip, you’ll be dancing in your seat!
