Performing “Do You Mind” with
an all-star cast that included Nicki Minaj, Future, Rick Ross, and August Alsina, Khaled acted as a musical maestro and hype man.
Although Chris Brown couldn’t make it, August handled hook duties. “Girl, we been right here, thinkin’ ’bout it all night,” he sang. “Baby you should be up in my bed / Do you mind?”
After the male MCs walked down staircases to spit their verses, Nicki Minaj returned to the AMA stage for the song’s finale. Dressed in all black, she commanded attention: “When you see a bad bitch in front of you…Assume the position.” Earlier in the evening, she joined Ariana Grande for their “Side to Side” collaboration.
“Do You Mind” is the latest smash off Khaled’s Major Key album, which was just certified gold. So far, the song has peaked at No. 39 on the Billboard Hot 100.
