With the 2011 MTV Movie Awards less than a month away (the shindig will be broadcast live from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California on June 5), the network is starting to unveil its lineup of performers. The first two to be announced: politically-minded MC Lupe Fiasco and his “Out Of My Head” collaborator Trey Songz.
A press release for the MTV event notes that Fiasco will follow his and Songz’s debut performance together with his current smash “The Show Goes On” at the Jason Sudeikis-hosted event.
“I’m excited to be performing on this year’s MTV Movie Awards,” says Lupe Fiasco. “I’m looking forward to putting together another special performance for my fans.”
“‘Out Of My Head’ is such a dope song and easily one of my favorite collaborations to date. When Lupe first played the track for me I knew it was going to be a smash and I’m happy it’s been received so well,” Trey Songz adds. “The ‘MTV Movie Awards’ are such a special event and Lupe is a great performer, so I am excited to be able to do the show with him.”
