Continuing to support her recently-released studio album, Queen, Nicki Minaj serves up a new video for LP cut “Ganja Burn.”

Set in the desert, the visual for “Ganja Burn” revolves around the story of a betrayed queen attempting to seek vengeance against her wrongdoers. The vignette comes to us courtesy of directors Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, and features sequences that resemble the eye-catching Queen cover-art. The track itself is produced by Nicki Minaj’s close collaborator J. Reid, and serves as Queen‘s opening record.

You can check out the video for Nicki Minaj’s “Ganja Burn” above. Today’s clip follows the previously-shared visuals for Queen singles “Chun Li” and “Barbie Tingz.”

Additionally, over the weekend Nicki Minaj shared a song that didn’t end up on Queen: the Nas-assisted “Sorry.”
