Flo Milli brought the fits and fun, fused with dance moves during her MTV Video Music Award performance debut. The Mobile, AL native took the Extended Play Stage, presented by Doritos to perform both two songs from her debut album, You Still Here, Ho?
Dripped in Telfar’s “performance bandeau,” while matching with its signature “thigh hole track pants”, Flo Milli’s high energetic effort remained consistent throughout both performances for “Bed Time” and “Conceited.”
“Expect a full show – a Flo Milli experience,” she said regarding audience expectations.
Based on the crowd’s reaction, it is safe to say that Flo Milli was not the only feeling her while she performed “Conceited,” but did so while performing “Bedtime” as well.
She filled the Extended Play stage with distinct versatility, back by dancers who fed off the reciprocated energy.
Flo Mill dropped her debut album back in July, which is a sequel from her debut mixtape, Ho, Why Is You Here? Her project titles have derived from her love for reality tv shows. She even featured VH1 legend, Tiffany “New York” Pollard on the intro and outro of her debut album.
Last week she released her video for “Big Steppa.” The Amber Park directed video shows a “larger than life” Flo Milli flowing to the rhythm of her own beat.
Flo Milli is set to perform at Made In America Festival next month. Watch her performance of “Conceited” below.

Though spokespeople for Disney+ and Megan had not returned requests for comment at press time, earlier this year a stunt person who worked on the set of the Tatiana Maslany-starring series seemed to corroborate the news by listing the need for a stunt double for “utility stunts” for the “Savage” MC. In addition to the possible MCU cameo, it was previously announced that MTS would appear alongside Nathan Lane and Bowen Yang in the first-ever musical from A24, F*cking Identical Twins.
When it comes to her acting plans, Meg said she’s taking notes from a pair of OG rapper-to-actor idols. “When I look at them, it inspires me to take it further than just music,” she said of Queen Latifah and Ice Cube. “I don’t feel like I’m only going to be an actress — I feel like I’m also going to be a director and I’m also going to be a producer.”
In the profile, Megan also reveals that she actually auditioned for P-Valley before the world knew who she was, trying out for the lead role of Mercedes, which wound up going to actress Brandee Evans. “But seeing Brandee play Mercedes, I’m like, Obviously, I was not here yet. She’s so perfect for that role,” Meg said. The show’s creator, playwright Katori Hall, however, saw something in the rapper and recalled thinking, “This young lady has swag. She has power. She has something to say. She’s obviously gorgeous to look at. This is a young artist.”
Megan isn’t the only one who thinks she has a future in acting. J. Alphonse Nicholson, who plays rapper Lil Murda on P-Valley said he believes she’s just getting started in the acting game. “I think she has it in her tool bag to do anything,” he said. “You could see her in a period piece, whether she’s playing someone in the 1960s trying to come up and make it, or whether she’s in a futuresque sci-fi film and she’s out here whooping ass and fighting on some Marvel stuff. I think she could bring it all to the table just because she has that glow.”
As long as we’re making a list, Megan said her dream roster also includes a possible Bring It On reboot in which she would slip into Gabrielle Union’s iconic cheer uniform to play Isis, explaining, “I always have wanted to be Isis. I would be perfect for that. If they were ever to make a new Bring It On, I should be that character.”
Reuniting with longtime collaborator and Drake producer Boi-1day, R&B singer/songwriter Savannah Re shows another side of her artistry with the single “Closure.” In the new song, Savannah asserts her worth and calls out toxic Fboy energy. “Closure” blends Baile Funk percussion with dancehall and soca influences for an uptempo track unlike anything Savannah has released before. “Closure” is the second single from Savannah’s forthcoming sophomore album “No Weapons”, which is due out this fall. Listen to “Closure” below.
Nicki Minaj gave Barbz a special late summer present on Friday (August 26) when she dropped the surprise greatest hits compilation Queen Radio: Volume 1. The unannounced 28-track compilation features some of Nick’s most beloved hits — including “Beez In the Trap,” “Truffle Butter,” “Anaconda,” “Super Bass,” “Starships,” “Pound the Alarm” and the Ariana Grande collab “Bed,” among others — as well as the more recent tracks “Do We Have a Problem?” with Lil Baby and the Rick James-sampling “Super Freaky Girl.”
Other tracks on the collection include her Eminem collab “Roman’s Revenge,” “Chun-Li,” “High School” (feat. Lil Wayne), “Moment 4 Life” (feat. Drake), “Barbie Dreams,” “Your Love,” “Save Me” and “Fly” with Rihanna. As fans await the follow-up to Minaj’s most recent studio album, 2018’s Queen, the new collection should slake their thirst until Sunday (August 28) at least, when the rapper will take the stage at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards to receive the coveted Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, where she will also perform on the broadcast for the first time since 2018.
Minaj will be the first Video Vanguard recipient since another female rapper, Missy Elliott, was honored in 2019. The award wasn’t presented in the last two years, due to complications caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Check out the album art work below.
