Video Premiere: Nicki Minaj - The Night Is Still Young

Nicki Minaj serves up a recipe for having a good time in the official visual for her brand-new single "The Night Is Still Young". The song was written by Nicki Minaj (real name Onika Maraj) together with Ester Dean, Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald, Donnie Lewis, Ziggy Mcstalin, Theron Thomas and Henry Walter. The party anthem was produced by Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald and Cirkut. "The Night Is Still Young" serves as the sixth single taken from the 32-year-old Trini-born rapstress's third studio album 'The Pinkprint', released on December 12, 2014 via Young Money, Cash Money and Republic Records.

Queen Nicki owns the night in the Hannah Lux Davis-directed music video as she flaunts her killer curves and shows off her hypnotizing moves alongside her Harajuku backup dancers. Minaj brings back her fierce signature look from the Pink Friday days with a bubblegum-colored wig and matching pink bodysuits but also manages to keep it all-natural and classy in a sexy black leather dress with a high ponytail. Nicki Minaj encourages young partygoers to live it up as they all gather in the streets of Japantown under an illuminated enormous-looking pinkish full moon. Nicki Minaj's boyfriend Meek Mill makes a cameo as he picks her up on his motorcycle and they ride out into the moonlight. The music video was filmed in Downtown Los Angeles, California in March 2015.

Lyrics to The Night Is Still Young by Nicki Minaj

[Verse 1]
Yo, ayo tonight is the night that I'ma get twisted
Myx Moscato and vodka, I'ma mix it
Roll that spaceship, we about to get lifted
Live in the present and gift is for the gifted
This what you came, this what you came for
You get what you buy, this what you paid for
So make sure the stars is what you aim for
Make mistakes though

I never worry, life is a journey
I just wanna enjoy the ride
What is the hurry? It's pretty early
It's ok, we'll take our time

The night is still young
The night is still young
The night is still young
And so are we
The night is still young
(How dare we sit quietly)
The night is still young
(And watch the world pass us by)
The night is still young
(How dare we sit quietly)
And so are we

[Verse 2]
Ayo, drinks on you, or the drinks is on me
We ain't going nowhere like tanks is on E
We still getting money, what bank it's gon' be?
If he sexy, he planking on me
So when them big boys want all of that (Ay!)
Tell the bartender, say my order back (Ay!)
It's bottle service, he ordered that (Ay!)
Might let him take it home and slaughter that
He got friends for all of my friends
They ain't leaving 'till we say when
And we gon' hangover the next day
But we will remember this day
So drop the pop and get low
Or we can drop the top and just cruise
We fresh to death, down to the shoes
My only motto in life is don't lose

[Pre-Chorus] + [Chorus]

[Bridge] (x2)
We're just getting started, yeah, yeah
We're just getting started, yeah, yeah
Can't you see the night's still early
And we gon' get it wild and crazy


How dare we sit quietly
And watch the world pass us by
How dare we sit quietly
And watch the world pass us by
