WATCH: Nicki Minaj's No-Nonsense #TwerkIt Video

It's news to positively no one that Nicki Minaj is the queen of twerking. And if you jumped on the Miley Cyrus twerk bandwagon a few weeks ago, this video will have you switching loyalties. Minaj may have adopted a sweeter look for "Super Bass" and "Starships", but she's never let us forget how badass she really is (ass being the key word). Case in point: her new #TwerkIt video.
For the video, Minaj teamed up with Busta Rhymes, Pharrell, and DJ Khaled — we're using the phrase "teamed up" very loosely, as we're unclear on what exactly Pharrell and Khaled are doing in this video. Not that it bothers us if Pharrell wants to hangout and, like, just look good.

We're also not too sure what Busta Rhymes is saying in this song (shocker). Here's one thing we do know for certain: This video reinstates the Minaj that caught our interest in the first place. For real.
