Nicki Minaj & Big Sean Star In ‘Adidas Originals’’ “Represent” Commercial With Jeremy Scott
Not only is Nicki Minaj a Harajuku Barbie but it turns out that she can easily be called an Endorsement Barbie with the amount of deals that she has been landing. Starring in campaigns for Pepsi and MAC, the rapper has now been featured in the commercial for ‘Adidas originals’’ “Represent” alongside Big Sean, Sky Ferreira, 2NE1 and Jeremy Scott.
Rocking a Jeremy Scott coat, Minaj hits the street of New York with Jeremy Scott. Over in Chicago, Big Sean and Sky Ferreira are doing their thing while K-Pop group 2NE1 is tearing it up in Tokyo. The soundtrack for the commercial is Minaj’s ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ track ‘Masquerade’ and it also features appearances from the band Kids These Days and Chicago Bulls player Derrick Rose.
“Well I am a fan of the Adidas brand and have been for a very long time. I believe they represent what I represent, which is inspiration and fun and working hard as well,” she recently told ‘Rolling Stone’ of her decision to become involved with ‘Adidas Originals.’
Speaking of the soundtrack she said: “’Masquerade,’ to me, feels like the Olympics. When Adidas came to me, they mentioned the Olympics. They mentioned maybe having a performance at the Olympics, and I just put my brain into the mindframe of, “What does a champion feel like? What is the inner conversation of a champion?” And I just started by saying “Feel the beat of the drum” and talking about being Number One, all those things that go through your brain sometimes when you’re feeling like you’re at the crossroads between continuing and giving up.”
“The song [‘Masquerade’] is about feeling inspired to win and to never give up and I feel like the Adidas campaign,” she added. “That’s what it’s really about: giving people hope and you know, that’s what I wanted to convey in the song.”
