As promised, Nicki Minaj came through and performed a new track, her feature on Playboi Carti’s “Poke It Out,” during the season finale of Saturday Night Live.
Carti came out to perform the song with the self-proclaimed Queen — which just so happens to the name of her forthcoming album. “Poke it Out” can be found on Carti’s latest effort Die Lit. Nicki also performed the song “Chun-Li,” which was one of two songs she dropped at the top of her album roll out.
Officially in album grind mode, Minaj now has two songs known to the public for her Queen album, with “Chun-Li” and “Barbie Tingz” working the charts right now.
In its first full week, “Chun-Li” debuted in the Billboard Top 10, and now sits at number 19 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. “Barbie Tingz,” which was released the same day, hasn’t enjoyed the same success; the song currently is sitting at number 84 on the same chart.
While Nicki blazed the stage for SNL on Saturday, she was also nominated for Top Female Artist at the Billboard Awards on Sunday alongside Cardi B and Bhad Bhabie. Cardi B ultimately took home the award after having an unarguably hot year in 2017.
The “Anaconda” rapper also teased fans by saying that her and last week’s Saturday Night Live host, Tina Fey, plan to do a film together called Get Ya Life Ugly. No actual project has yet been publicly confirmed though.
