The 2019 A-Class won’t be offered in the US, but this hasn’t stopped Mercedes-Benz from signing Nicki Minaj to help them promote it.
The ad campaign is the most we’ve seen from Nicki in weeks, and her cameo is only seconds long. In the advertisement showcasing some of the technology Mercedes has been working on, a driver asks to play some hip-hop music, to which Nicki Minaj appears in the passenger seat, giving her a wink and bobbing her head along to the beat. After the driver pulls off a sharp turn, Nicki exclaims, “Yikes, you did that!” Mercedes-Benz has a current partnership with Tidal, which Minaj is a co-owner of, so the pairing was likely naturally pulled off.
