Robin Thicke & Nicki Minaj’s “Back Together” Music Video Features A Very Important Cameo From A Very Important Music Video Star — VIDEO
If you are a fan of "Shakin' It 4 Daddy" by Robin Thicke and Nicki Minaj, consider today your lucky day, you lucky duck. Why might that be, exactly? Is the suspense killing you? OK, OK. I will get to the answer: Thicke and Minaj are back together for “Back Together”, the second single off of Thicke's to-be-released album Morning Sun. The music video for the Max Martin-produced song debuted Thursday, and it really is something to behold. Here's the one-sentence, Cliff's Notes summary of the music video: the "Blurred Lines" singer plays a guy who goes to a midcentury modern pool party and the "Anaconda" rapper plays a lady who sits next to a blue rotary phone. Does anything else happen? Well sure, but I don't want to spoil everything. (OK, OK. I'll give you a hint: it rhymes with "flool flarty floncert.")
Look, as far as I'm concerned, what really REALLY makes this music video shine are the truly special details that have been sprinkled throughout. Truly special details that take "Back Together" to the next level. What might these truly special details be? Oh, I will tell you. I will tell you right now.

The "Why Don't You Love Me" Rotary Phone's Cameo
Is that who I think it is? Could it be? Could it be the very same vintage baby blue rotary phone from Beyoncé's "Why Don't You Love Me" music video?
Always great to see you, baby blue rotary phone!
