Nicki Minaj has been known to randomly pull out a British accent from time to time, so she probably felt right at home over the weekend, when she performed for thousands of screaming English fans at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo in London.
The Hip Hop Chronicle posted a video compilation of several different songs from the show, beginning with the opener, ‘Roman’s Revenge,’ which found the rapper dancing in a long robe before removing it to reveal a yellow jacket and tight pink pants.
The crowd erupted upon hearing the twinkling opening notes of ‘Moment 4 Life,’ then rapped along as Minaj declared, “I fly with the stars in the skies / I am no longer trying to survive / I believe that life is a prize / But to live doesn’t mean you’re alive.” Minaj performed her biggest hits from ‘Pink Friday’ and ‘Roman Reloaded,’ including ‘Starships,’ which was a highlight later in the set.
The European leg of Minaj’s Pink Friday Tour continues into July, when she returns to the U.S. for a series of shows starting July 16 in Chicago. She returns to the U.K. in August for the V Festival. Get a preview of Nicki’s live show by checking out the clip below.
