Nicki minaj turns ‘hey mama’ into ‘slay mama’ with this amazing performance

We got a double dose of Nicki Minaj during her 2015 Billboard Music Awards performance Sunday (May 17). In addition to singing her new song with David Guetta, “Hey Mama,” she brought down the house with another solo single.

The performance kicked off with a slower vibe, surrounded by dancers and fog with a Tokyo backdrop for “The Night Is Still Young,” before stripping down and kicking things up a notch with karate-chopping moves, fire and sexy shirtless male dancers. Nicki had everyone clapping and dancing along to “Hey Mama” in the audience, including celebs like Taylor Swift and Zendaya singing loudly.

And, of course, David was fist-pumping from the DJ booth, keeping the excitement going over the whole stage. It was hard to decide where to look with fire exploding in one spot while Nicki shook her booty in another. As always, our girl was mesmerizing — we might as well re-name the song “Slay, Mama.”

Watch her performance above, and prepare to have both of these songs stuck in your head all night.
