Nicki Minaj joins Drake for surprise appearance in Paris

Drake thrilled fans at his concert in Paris, France on Sunday night (12Mar17) by inviting fellow rapper Nicki Minaj to join him onstage for a surprise appearance.

The hip-hop stars, who are both signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment label, recently reunited in the studio to record No Frauds, a diss track which takes aim at Nicki’s nemesis Remy Ma, and they performed the song live for the first time at the AccorHotels Arena in the French capital.

Nicki and Drake also treated the audience to renditions of their previous collaborations Only, Truffle Butter, and Moment 4 Life.

The gig marked the first time Nicki had performed with Drake since reconciling their friendship earlier this year (17), two years after falling out over the Starships hitmaker’s relationship with ex-boyfriend Meek Mill. The rap beauty confirmed rumours of her split from Meek in early January (17).

At Sunday’s show, Nicki, who wore a figure-hugging nude latex bodysuit under a clear raincoat, took a moment during her set to express her love for Drake, and then appeared to hint at the problems which led to her break-up from Meek.
