Nicki Minaj has many reasons to celebrate. After the recent release of a pair of new singles, she dropped an accompanying visual for “Chun-Li” on Friday and is back on good terms with Quavo.

In a video released on Twitter, the Barbz leader is seen hanging out with Quavo as “Chun Li” plays in the background. The two even sport a filter which adorns their heads with a crown of flame emojis. The Barbz leader later told her followers that Quavo apologized for leaving the public to think of her as the “bad guy.” She even called for her Barbz to stop flooding Quavo’s comments section. “He apologized. Y’all can stop torturing him now,” she tweeted. “The Generous Queen FORGIVES.”

Nicki’s newly released clip is doing quite well too. It quickly surpassed 500,000 views on YouTube in less than 24 hours. In the video, which is largely filmed from the perspective of a smartphone selfie, Nicki rocks a black, latex outfit.

Those who follow Nicki on Instagram got a preview of the video earlier, as Nicki teased its release.

“Should I release the full in-studio video for #ChunLi?” Nicki wrote in the caption to a brief preview of the clip. “I kinda love it most of it is selfie footage mixed w/a little help from @grizzleearts. BOTH songs were produced by a producer I just signed @jreidtheproducer. LOVE our chemistry on both #BarbieTingz AND #ChunLi. Cover artwork by @joe_r_perez &  @jenna___marsh.”

Much like her new music, Nicki’s latest visual reflects a more hands-on approach. Per Nicki, the “Chun-Li,” video was largely self-shot with some assistance from Alex Loucas. Nicki and Loucas previously worked together on the viral shoot “Nicki’s World” for Marie Claire.

It’s been an eventful weekend for Nicki but she’s capping it off in the best way possible: hanging out with celebrity friends like Kylie Jenner, Travi$ Scott, Kourtney Kardashian, Chance the Rapper, Quavo, and Rotimi at Coachella.
