Nicki Minaj the Delivery of Pre-Recorded Performance For the 2018 MTV video music awards
It's a first for any major award show.
New York, NY – For the 2018 Video Music Awards, MTV pre-recorded Nicki Minaj on the Oculus centre for the World Trade Center transit station and issued during the night of Monday (August 20) ceremony for the first time in a major awards ceremony.
Dressed in an outfit worthy of a queen, Nicki emerged from a golden throne and holding a scepter as she opened her set with the live performances of "Majesty" and "Barbie" Dreams before spit a few acapella bars of "Ganja Burn" — all new music from the recently released album of Queen.
To finish the set, the self-proclaimed Queen of Rap made "FEFE", his collaboration with Tekashi 6ix9ine. The controversial rapper, however, does not make an appearance.

Nicki lashed out on Twitter on Sunday (August 19) and claimed the Queen was the No. 1 Billboard 200 album — not Travis Scott Astroworld — despite numbers that say otherwise. She pointed the finger at Kylie Jenner, with his son The Flame, Stormi, and Spotify.
Last week, Nicki quietly added "FEFE" the Queen of the list of tracks on all the streaming platforms in what seemed an attempt to secure the no. 1 spot. Unfortunately for her, that does not work.
