On Sunday night, Nicki Minaj joined forces with David Guetta for a sexy, amped-up performance of their track "Turn Me On" at the American Music Awards. The two kicked off a night that would lead to two wins for the fierce MC, who nabbed trophies for Favorite Rap/ Hip-Hop Artist and Favorite Rap/ Hip-Hop Album for Pink Friday.
Before Guetta hit the stage, he spoke to MTV News on the red carpet, revealing that his collabo with Minaj would have fans seeing a whole new side of the MC. "To tell you the truth, the fact that I'm performing this record for the first time ... I want to see the reaction that people are gonna have because they are going to hear Nicki like they've never heard her before," he explained of working with Minaj, who also appears on his song "Where Them Girls At." "I'm really happy today because I'm having a #1 record with Usher [for] 'Without You,' which is amazing [and] my first #1 as an artist in the U.S. And presenting this also, I really can't wait to get the reaction from the American audience when they're gonna see her sing like this because she is killing it."
In the lead-up to the performance, Guetta said that Minaj was already bringing fire to the table. "She always comes with the crazy ideas," he said. "So it's very exciting."
With the performance under their belts, the two now have plans to shoot a video for the track, which appears on Guetta's album Nothing but the Beat. Guetta and Minaj teased the video plans on Twitter, hours after the AMAs wrapped up. "We are shooting our video with @NICKIMINAJ tmw. It's gonna be sick! #nbtb #TurnMeOn," Guetta wrote.
"Can't wait David! Love u!!!" she tweeted in response.
