Watch Nicki Minaj jumpstart the 2017 Billboard Music Awards with medley of songs

Nicki had a star-studded performance with Lil Wayne, Jason Derulo and David Guetta as special guests.

Nicki Minaj has the most Billboard Hot 100 appearances of any woman artist of all time with 76, and with her opening performance at the Billboard Music Awards, she reminded viewers of her star-studded resume.

After an intro that ran through Nicki’s previous hits, the YMCMB queen took the stage in an all-black, jeweled bikini to perform her Remy Ma diss “No Frauds.” Her Cash Money mentor Lil Wayne then came on stage rocking a camo-colored coat and pants to perform his guest verse.

Nicki then removed her mask and went to a different part of the stage to perform “Light My Body Up” with David Guetta, who was in the back of the stage behind the boards. Jason Derula then took the stage, for the pair to perform their collaboration “Swalla.” After spitting her rhymes in the first three songs, she took on a majestic, misty stage to close out her set with “Regret In My Tears.”

Watch the full performance below.
