Queen Of Hip-hop,Nicki Minaj Stars In New Mercedes-Benz A-Class Commercial
The new 2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class has a N13m (£25,800) starting price and packs plenty of standard gear, including the dual-screen layout with two 7-inch displays.
But the fact that the new 2018 A-Class hatchback won’t be sold in the US hasn’t stopped Mercedes-Benz from signing 35-year old American rapper Nicki Minaj to help them promote it.
Born in Trinidad and Tobago and raised in New York, the Pink Friday rapper makes a cameo about 55 seconds into the lengthy ad. The video shows a woman riding in her A-Class vehicle, while talking to her interactive Mercedes audio system.
“Hey Mercedes, play me some hip-hop,” she commands. Nicki appears in the passenger seat, much to the surprise of the driver. She then shows off the car’s genius ability to help avoid traffic blocks ahead.
Besides having Nicki Minaj on board, Mercedes-Benz has also strengthened ties with TIDAL.
