Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" video: Love it or hate it?


Nicki Minaj's new "Anaconda" video, unleashed at midnight on Wednesday, has simply taken the social media world by storm since its arrival.


So much for Taylor Swift's new "Shake It Off" video, which caught our attention earlier this week or even Miley Cyrus' twerking skills. 

Nicki Minaj's new "Anaconda" video, unleashed at midnight on Wednesday, has simply taken the social media world by storm since its arrival. By Wednesday afternoon, the video received nearly 5 million YouTube hits. Minaj even chimed in on how the clip continues to trend:

The twerk-heavy, sexual, racy -- and very NSFW music video -- has garnered praise from some fans, while others are left scratching their heads. The clip, which also finds Minaj giving rapper Drake a lap dance (which seriously ups the "wow" factor here), has opened up a slew of questions, too.

Is Minaj trying to one-up fellow female rapper Iggy Azalea and her summer hit "Fancy"? Is the video too racy? Does it empower women or do just the opposite? What about the shock value? And how do you explain it to your children if they come across it? 

Whichever side you're on, this video certainly has people talking and likely will for a little while. And we can't stop thinking about Sir Mix-a-Lot's 1992 rap classic "Baby Got Back" while watching. 

Minaj is slated to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday. Will she perform "Anaconda"? We wonder if Drake will make a special appearance. Time will tell.
