Nicki Minaj to Perform With Lil Wayne at 2017 Billboard Music Awards
If you’ve been keeping track of Nicki’s activity in 2017 (like we have), you can probably guess at least two of the songs she’ll be performing. A few months ago, the Young Money dynamo appeared on Derulo’s “Swalla,” a single that also featured Ty Dolla $ign. We also know that both Nicki and Weezy appeared on David Guetta’s “Light My Body Up,” so there’s a really good shot they’ll be running through a performance of that as well.
Billboard also hinted at, if not flat out revealed that Minaj’s performance will be a medley, writing in their tweet, “@NICKIMINAJ is opening the #BBMAs. 🔥 She’s bringing @davidguetta, @jasonderulo & @LilTunechi with her! Sunday at 8e/5p on ABC. #MinajMedley.”
There is an accompanying video in that tweet announcing the specifics of Nicki’s performance. The clip is pretty bare bones, featuring only an image of Nicki and a purple filter, along with some cool background music. The news itself is enough to make anyone excited. ABC will air the 2017 Billboard Music Awards this Sunday at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST.
You can peep the preview video for Nicki’s performance at the star-studded awards show just below.
