Watch Nicki Minaj perform live with The Weeknd

Watch Nicki Minaj perform live with The Weeknd

The Hills have remixes.

How do you make sure your remix of The Weeknd stands out from the hundreds of other Weeknd remixes floating around? Well, if you’re Nicki Minaj that’s doing the remix, you premiere with a live performance featuring The Weeknd himself, on one of the States’ most watched late night shows, SNL.  The two, who teased their collaboration at New York Fashion Week, put on a bit of a show on SNL to match the track's racy lyrics, with Nicki strutting around Abel, teasingly singing 'Remember when I showed up with just my panties under my coat?' before Abel twirls Nicki around and bows down to her. Watch the A-list rapper spit her new verse on the song, below.

Republic Records also released an Eminem remix of the track over the weekend along with the Nicki one, with Slim Shady jumping in for two, more forthright, impassioned verses, rapping rapid-fire: 'So keep textin' me, but at night if you seek those thrills, what I expect to be? 'Cause if you cheat on him, that just means I'm the next to be your ex. So no complexities, just sex. And don't lecture me, just accept that'. You can also listen to that below.

When Abel released his brilliant sophomore album Beauty Behind the Madness, at the end of August, the huge dancefloor jam Can't Feel My Face was #1 on the US charts. Recently however, The Weeknd dethroned himself when The Hills went to #1 on September 21, where it’s been ever since.
