We just can’t get [artist id="2017563"]Lupe Fiasco[/artist]‘s songs out of our head, so the Chicago rapper has been tapped to perform alongside [artist id="1838768"]Trey Songz[/artist] at the 2011 MTV Movies Awards. On the live June 5 show, Lu will rock two songs from his Lasers album which debuted at #1 on the Billboard albums chart when it was released earlier this year.
First Fiasco will take the stage with Trigga Trey to do their collabo song “Out of My Head” for the first time together on television, then Lupe will perform his platinum Kane Beatz-produced single “The Show Goes On.”
” ‘Out of My Head’ is such a dope song and easily one of my favorite collaborations to date,” Trey Songz said in a statement. “When Lupe first played the track for me I knew it was going to be a smash, and I’m happy it’s been received so well. The MTV Movie Awards are such a special event, and Lupe is a great performer, so I am excited to be able to do the show with him.”
“I’m excited to be performing on this year’s MTV Movie Awards,” said Lupe Fiasco. “I’m looking forward to putting together another special performance for my fans.”
The 2011 MTV Movie Awards will be hosted by actor/comedian Jason Sudeikis and will be broadcast live from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California, on Sunday, June 5, at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
Ryan Reynolds, Nicki Minaj, Selena Gomez, Jason Segel, Aziz Ansari and Steve Carell are presenting at the show, and more appearances will be announced soon.
