First Nicki Minaj and Drake got married. Then they got divorced. After that, Drake claimed he wrote his "Un-Thinkable" verse about Nicki. And now, the two Lil Wayne protégés will star in Nicki's "Moment 4 Life" video, premiering Thursday at 7:54 p.m. ET on MTV followed by a live interview with Minaj herself.

The question on everyone's minds now is: Will the sparks fly between the two in the clip?

"People have come to be intrigued about us," Minaj told MTV News from the video's Los Angeles set. "And we're shooting the video together, so I was like, 'There has to be some kind of romantic story line.' So we put a few things in there that we don't give away."

Perhaps the pair will smooch again? During her December concert in New York, Drake made a guest appearance and surprised fans when he planted one on the "Right Thru Me" raptress. Photos of the alleged kiss popped up everywhere afterward, but Drake sported a hooded jacket that concealed his and Nicki's faces when they drew close.

According to Nicki, she and Drake are just friends, which she insists often despite his flirty responses in interviews. "This is someone that I'm gonna hit on the [phone] later today, like, 'What's up,' " she said. "It's a family affair when it's Drake."

Drizzy, on the other hand, has always had something different to say.

"It is [about Minaj], I'm not gonna lie," Drake explained when asked about his verse on Alicia Keys' "Un-Thinkable (I'm Ready)" last year. "The concept came from a conversation that we had, or conversations we have. I wrote it based off two things: Number one, based off that, and then two, based off Alicia and Swizz and their situation, and it just seemed fitting. It was like the perfect concept."
