Nicki Minaj references her Caribbean roots for her latest video, "Pound the Alarm." The Young Money diva, who was born in Trinidad, heads back to the island nation for a Carnival-themed clip for her newest single.
Sporting a gang of platinum blond spirals and a black, red, and white bejeweled Carnival outfit - the colors of the Trinidadian flag - replete with crimson plumes, Minaj makes her homeland pride known. The femcee leads a posse of similarly decked-out dancers through the streets of St. James to a raucous outdoor bash reminiscent of the world-famous Trinidad and Tobago Carnival.
