In the 'Love in the Way' music video, which is directed by Primo, the Alabama singer/rapper and the 'Super Freaky Girl' hitmaker can be seen wearing high-fashion African attire.

AceShowbiz - Yung Bleu and Nicki Minaj have given fans a special treat. Just days after releasing their new joint single "Love in the Way", the Alabama artist and the "Super Freaky Girl" hitmaker unleashed an official music video for the track.

The Primo-directed visuals shows Bleu singing his verse while being surrounded by a number of beautiful black women and men. Both the singer/rapper and his collaborator wear high-fashion African attire for the clip.

Nicki begins the song, which was dropped on September 16, by rapping, "You blew it, I could tell you knew it/ But you was like 'Screw it,' and I guess I'm fluid." The femcee goes on, " 'Cause I was like, 'F**k you and them b***hes included'/ 'Cause I was goin' through it, ain't nothin' more to it."

"Baby, your love in the way/ But don't stop it, just keep doin' what you do/ How could I move with your love in my way?" Bleu sings. "It hurts to love again and it's all because of you/ 'Cause, baby, your love in the way (Your love)/ I need you right now, why would you push me away?/ Baby, your love in the way/ I need you right now, why would you push me away?"

Speaking about the music video, Bleu told VIBE in a statement, "In a world where Black women with melanin and darker complexions are not as highlighted and celebrated enough, it's important to show just how beautiful blackness is." He added, "I hope our 'love in the way' visual captures this and leaves women feeling appreciated, beautiful, and adored..as they should be."

"Love in the Way" sampled Sam Tompkins' hit "Whole". Excited by the feature, Sam gushed on Twitter, "Woke up today and had to pinch myself... My song 'whole' was sampled by @_YungBleu & @NICKIMINAJ and is now out everywhere. i feel really grateful and also really appreciated today. thank you to everyone who made this happen for me. i won't ever forget it."

Nicki is also a big fan of the song. When responding to a fan's tweet that read, "Why this song got me in my feelings ??" the Trinidadian-born raptress replied, "Even after I recorded it when I tell you I could NOT stop playing this."
