He performed his new single “Don’t Think They Know” featuring Aaliyah and was joined by Sean Kingston (“Beat It”), Tyga (“For the Road”), and Tank (“Shots Fired”).
The crowd went wild when he brought out Nicki Minaj to perform a medley of hits including DJ Khaled’s “Take It to the Head.” Breezy danced alongside Nicki as she continued with “Beez in the Trap” and “High School.”
“thx for showing love at powerhouse!!! Means a lot to me. Thank you,” Chris told Nicki, who will appear on his upcoming album X, due July 16.

It could have something to do with the attention Wale lavishes on Nicki. He profusely thanks the femcee for being in the video, humbly admitting that she’s doing him a big favor. Meanwhile Juicy J hovers in the background, talking about weed. Other highlights of the six-minute clip include The Gifted MC singing Aqua‘s “Barbie Girl” to Minaj as she poses for a colorful photoshoot and Mr J expressing his love for women with cellulite.
Listen to the song above!
Also, Nicki announced to be making a video with Nelly and Pharrell soon for this song. Stay tuned!
While we love the sentiment, it’s going to take an extraordinary amount of confidence to rock a skin-tight mini dress, a puffy vest and bedazzled captain hat–at the same time. However, that seems to be exactly the over-the-top look Nicki is going for with her first fashion collaboration. Add some printed leggings, babyboll dresses, bold blazers, metallic bustiers and you’ve got yourself a celebrity clothing line that’s more flashy than classy.
In the “Shop Your Way” clip, the 30-year-old rapper-cum-designer gushes over the garish garments and explains that she didn’t want fans to think she’d only be producing “crazy stuff.” But that’s all we’re seeing. Considering Nicki’s recently makeunder, we thought the line would reflect some of her toned down style, but then again this KMart partnership was inked when the star was still sporting costumes andpasties on a regular basis.
Check out the video above. What do you think of the collection?
Gather ’round Barbs, Queen Barbie has released the first look at her new line for Kmart and online retailer Shop Your Way and it’s kinda cray.
The rapper announced her partnership with the budget megastore earlier this year, describing the line in a press conference as, “rich stuff, quality stuff; my big thing is that it cannot look cheesy or cheap.”
Not cheap? We’d have to give the clothing a proper feeling up to determine that. Not cheesy? We can’t check that box off with confidence just yet. As teased by the preview video released this week, Minaj’s line is pretty much what you’d expect from a fashionista-without-borders—tethered by Kmart execs.
The collection appears to emulate the outlandish Minaj’s style at a fairly basic level. Although the 30-year-old star has historically hit stages and red carpets in Gaga-threatening costumes, her style in 2013 has been exceptionally toned down. It may have a lot to do with her time as an American Idol judge, given that the show’s audience isn’t the most style conscious.
From what we can see, the line flaunts bright colors, neons, and bold prints, focusing on leggings, body con dresses, and blazers similar to what the rapper herself has been wearing this year (that gray one has got to go).
Minaj said of the line, “There are some dresses that I’m obsessing over already, just the shapes of them. They tuck you in at the right places and they enhance the right places.”
Overall the collection seems a bit hit-and-miss, ranging from stuff you could find at discount street shops to fairly chic Versace-esque chain print dresses and fun metallic bustiers. Guessing by the presence of puffy jackets and fun fur, the line will be released this fall.
Minaj hits up the design studio with her team to go over some of the latest stock of samples: printed skater dresses with cut-outs, graphic leggings, technicolor puffer vests, and cropped bustier tops. “There are some dresses that I’m obsessing over already, just the shapes of them,” Nicki says over shots of potential inclusions in the forth-coming collection, “They tuck you in in the right places and enhance the right places.” Form is important to Minaj who rattles off “Comfortable equals confident” as a kind of fashion design mantra. “I’m doing this for women in general to feel beautiful and sexy,” the Queen Barb explains, “and any woman can wear it and feel confident.” Stay up-to-date on Nicki’s Kmart collection and help guide the process along by following her Shop Your Way page!
