nicki minajNicki Minaj's "Your Love" -- the hit song that wasn't even supposed to be released -- now has a cool, new samurai-themed video.

Lil Wayne's protege never intended to put out the song. But it was stolen and leaked to the Web, and soon after began climbing the charts. Now, she's the first solo female hip-hop artist since Missy Elliot ("Work It") to have a No. 1 rap single; it's ironic, indeed, especially considering the fact that her first single, "Massive Attack," was somewhat of a flop.

If you think you've heard the song before, that's because she's rapping over a very familiar tune -- Annie Lennox's 1995 hit, "No More I Love Yous." The melodies may be recycled, but the video, which was released today, is all fresh and new ...

In it, Minaj plays a samurai vying for the attention of her sensei (and donning a variety of wigs in the process).

Does she get her man in the end? See for yourself ...

It's likely we're about to see much more of this chart-topping femcee. Minaj recently won Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at the BET Awards and plans to release her debut full-length album by the end of the year.

What do you think of the track "Your Love"?
