The rapper has been signed up to the soft drink's latest global campaign and stars in a new advert that features her global hit 'Moment 4 Life'.
"Out of the people that have done something with Pepsi, I think I was probably the most influenced by the Beyoncé commercial," Minaj said in a behind-the-scenes clip from the Pepsi shoot.
"I felt like this is a young black girl, early on in her career and she's doing something so iconic and I never thought in a billion years that Pepsi would reach out to someone like me."
Katy Perry and Joe Jonas are among the stars who have also signed deals with Pepsi to appear in their global 2012 campaign.
Meanwhile, Minaj's second studio album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded topped the US and UK charts upon its release back in April.
