‘Run Up’ shows exactly what it’s like to Facetime Nicki
The video for “Run Up” depicts a party where everyone’s eyes are glued to their phones. Instead of dancing for someone across the room, they’re dancing for themselves, or for whoever’s on the other end of their Facetime calls. In Diplo’s case, that’s Nicki Minaj, who dances with the producer from a faraway hotel room.
If you can’t get Nicki at your party, the next best thing is to videophone her in, right?
