Weekend music: This is why we prefer ゲスの極み乙女。 to Nicki Minaj

At the time of writing this American rapper Nicki Minaj's latest "controversial" song titled Anaconda is 500 000 views from 100 million on YouTube while the new one from Japanese band ゲスの極み乙女。 (Gesu no kiwami otome.) is closing in on 80 000.
Nicki Minaj: Thanks, but no thanks.
We guess both Nicki and Gesu are doing fine, but we prefer both the song and the video from the latter. Titled アソビ (Asobi) it is filmed in 4K on mobile phones and heaps more fun that Nicki's by-the-book butt-shaking.
