The self-proclaimed “Queen of New York” did her city proud Monday night.
During the 2018 VMA broadcast, audiences were treated to a Nicki Minaj set that was pre-recorded at the Oculus, the new shopping mall that opened in the World Trade Center. The rapper kicked things off with a performance of "Majesty," followed by "Barbie Dreams," an a cappella verse from "Ganja Burn," and "FEFE." The three former tracks appeared on the original version of Nicki's Queen album, while the last was added to the digital version shortly after.
You can check out Nicki's Queen medley in the video below.
Earlier in the night, Nicki accepted the Best Hip Hop award for her single "Chun-Li." And let's just say her acceptance speech was, uh, interesting. Nicki won the same award twice before: in 2011 for "Super Bass" and in 2015 for "Anaconda."
