Nicki Minaj is all set to take the stage at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 21), and when she does, David Guetta, Jason Derulo and none-other-than Lil Wayne will be joining her. The folks at Billboard revealed as much on Twitter today (May 19).
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. 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.”
Billboard also included a video in their 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-sounding 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.
