will.i.am and Nicki Minaj hit a Los Angeles soundstage recently to film the video for ‘Check It Out’, which the two first premiered at the MTV Music Video Awards pre-show. The track will appear on Minaj’s debut album ‘Pink Friday’, due in November. “We’re manipulating time and doing crazy things,” Will told The BoomBox of the Japanese anime-inspired video. “The subject matter of the song is ‘check out’ whatever it is you try and let fools know. This is like, ‘Check my style out,’ so we like rocking crazy different styles in the video performance.” Watch the behind the scenes video via YouTube below.
