Nicki Minaj’s ‘Anaconda’ Wins Hip-Hop Video of the Year in 2015 The Boombox Fan Choice Awards
When Nicki Minaj's booty-shaking "Anaconda" video broke a Vevo record in 2014, for garnering 19.6 million views in a 24-hour time period, it was clear the rapper had a visual hit on her hands. Now the Queens, N.Y. native can pat herself on the back once more for winning Hip-Hop Video of the Year in the 2015 The Boombox Fan Choice Awards.
"Anaconda," which sits on Nicki's third album, The Pinkprint, features enough backside to satisfy booty lovers everywhere. The gyrating hips, sexual overtones (that banana gets more play than many dudes will ever receive), workout scene and the rapper's killer body are just a few of the reasons this visual is adored by men and women alike.
The video went up against Iggy Azalea's "Fancy," Action Bronson's "Easy Rider," 2 Chainz's "Freebase" and A$AP Rocky's "Multiply," earning 58 percent of the fans' vote. A feat like this proves a clip dedicated to derrieres can come out on top.
Take a look at the percentage breakdown in the Hip-Hop Video of the Year category below to see how Nicki Minaj fared compared to the rest.
