Nicki Minaj returned to “Saturday Night Live” for the season finale with not one, but two performances.
The rapper started out with “Chun-Li” before diving into her recently-release collaboration with Playboi Carti, “Poke It Out.”
Donning a sparkly black robe and chopsticks in her hair, the Harajuku Barbie emerged under a glowing Chinese arch with four ninja dancers by her side. After busting some killer moves, she removed her robe to reveal a sexy patent leather outfit, inspired by the “Street Fighter” character. Flanked by two female dancers, Ms. King Kong capped off her first performance as strobe lights filled the stage.
For her second performance of the night, Nicki surprised with her Playboi Carti collaboration “Poke It Out” off the latter’s new album Die Lit. Playboi hit the stage first before a blonde Nicki strut out in a sexy black cutout dress that showed off her curves. Fierce as ever, she delivered her fiery verse while flaunting her body and then called upon Carti before twerking for him, ending with a shoutout to her Barbz.
Watch both performances below. Her new album, Queen, is due out June 15.
