On select dates of Britney Spears’ Femme Fatale tour, which kicks off next month with opening act Nicki Minaj, look for the singer to be joined by her “(Drop Dead) Beautiful” collaborator, Sabi. The fledgling rapper/singer dished about the gig to MTV News on Wednesday night at a private event hosted by Spears to benefit the St. Bernard Project, charity that aids Hurricane Katrina victims.
Sabi revealed that, first up, she’ll appear in Los Angeles this Saturday at KIIS-FM’s annual Wango Tango concert, which Spears will co-host. “That’s this week and when Britney goes on tour, I’ll be doing a couple shows, like L.A., Las Vegas and New York,” explained Sabi. “So that’s kind of what’s going on right now.”
While Spears has been busy prepping for the tour, Sabi has yet to hit up rehearsals with the femme fatale herself. “No [I haven't rehearsed yet]. I’ve been rehearsing for Wango Tango,” she said. “I don’t know [what will happen up there], I’m just excited. I’m gonna go and just kill it. You don’t get this type of opportunity all the time, so I’m just ready to go kill it.”
Sabi says that since Spears’ album dropped earlier this year, she’s been enjoying more and more visibility in the pop music world. And she is not complaining at all.
“Life’s been increasingly busy since then,” she explained. “Before, it was kind of like working, but it’s a slow grind and now things are coming to [fruition]. So it’s dope, ’cause this is what I wanted. I wanted to get to that level where I’m able to make really serious moves for my career and I’m here now, so it’s dope.”
