Calling the live-streamed virtual concert her “first day back”, Stallion delivered an hour-long set alongside six dancers. The event was choreographed by Jaquel Knight, who also worked on Beyoncé’s performance as Coachella.
“I need all my hotties to stand up, wherever you’re at, and shake that ass,” Stallion told her fans at home.
After the livestream, Stallion shared some images and a clip of the performance which you can see below:

Early in the set, Stallion also made a political statement in reference to the Black Lives Matter protests across the globe in the wake of George Floyd’s death.
After Stallion played ‘Big Booty’, the stage lights dimmed to reveal a backdrop saying ‘This Shit Is Exhausting’. Soon after, a list of Black Americans either injured or killed through alleged police brutality followed.
Floyd’s name was on the list alongside names including Breonna Taylor, Jacob Blake and Elijah McClain.
At the end of the list, a further message appeared reading: ‘Why Is It So Hard Being Black In America?’
Earlier this week (August 26), it was announced that Stallion will headline a new virtual festival event, Red Rocks Unpaused.
The free, three-day virtual festival kicks off on September 1 at 3am BST. All performances are set to be exclusively streamed live via the event’s Twitter page.
