NICKI MINAJ RAPS ‘FLAWLESS REMIX’ A CAPELLA AT IHEART RADIO MUSIC FESTIVAL 2014
Nicki Minaj was full of surprises at this year’s iHeartRadio Music Festival. After performing certified chart hits like “Super Bass,” she segued into her fiery verse in Beyonce’s “Flawless” remix – only to run into technical difficulties, as her backing music cut off and then on again. “iHeartRadio, do we have a problem?” she said, before she took matters into her own hands by performing her verse a cappella.
Billboard‘s recap of the femcee’s set reads as follows : After slaying “Super Bass” and fan favorite “Beez In The Trap.”Nicki Minaj runs into technical;difficulties during her ferocious verse on Beyonce’s “Flawless” remix.
”iHeartRadio, do we have a problem?” Minaj says, before quickly clarifying, “no, I don’t mean you, I mean [the sound guys] in the back.” Seizing an opportunity to turn an audio gaffe into a triumph, Minaj decides to rock the rest of her “Flawless” verse a capella (surprise! It kills.) Nicki addressed the “audio gaffe” on her Instagram page writing : #Video #flawless by the way. that wasn’t part of the show. Lol. The music really cut off so I just decided to go a cappella #iHeartRadio#Vegas.
