This Beyoncé + Nicki Minaj “Feeling Myself” vid is already the best thing to happen this week
World stop: Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé have officially dropped their “Feeling Myself” video on Tidal (the music and video streaming service owned by Jay-Z), and it is everything we dreamed it would be and more.
Along with being all kinds of badass, the music video feels like an unexpected ode to Nicki and Bey’s friendship, and it’s equal parts fun, empowering, and super adorable. In the video, the two eat fast food in a moon bounce, play with pool toys, get down next to multiple cars (duh), and show us how a real hair flip is done. I so badly want to believe that Nicki and Bey throw fries into each other’s mouths on the regular, even though they probably don’t — but this video makes me believe anything is possible, and that’s probably why it’s so darn amazing. We are definitely feeling it in the HelloGiggles office, and it basically just single-handedly redefined squad, friendship, and life goals for us all at once.
Apparently, the video was filmed while the two were at Coachella last month —which, of course, makes us seriously question how we choose to spend our downtime. They’ve even included some concert footage throughout — including a ridiculously cute moment backstage where Nicki and Bey geek out over Bubblicious gum. (Celebrities! They’re just like us!)
Are they feeling themselves in the video? Definitely — and there is absolutely zero reason why these two women shouldn’t be. Feeling Myself is the perfect reminder that girls should be allowed to feel awesome about themselves, and that there’s nothing shameful in some well-earned confidence. The video is well worth a watch, and basically has us ready to take on the world. Check it out for yourself below.
