Qatar’s human rights record has come under intense scrutiny in the run-up to the World Cup. A 2021 investigation by the Guardian found that more than 6,500 migrant workers from five south Asian countries had died in Qatar while working to build the stadiums needed to host the tournament. Additionally, homosexuality is effectively criminalized in the country while questions remain over the selection process to host the tournament in the Gulf state.

As Maluma walked away from presenter he was asked: “Why am I rude Maluma? I think this is what people say, this is what people think.”

In 2022, Nicki Minaj released “Super Freaky Girl,” a Rick James-sampling track that was her first solo release since 2019. The song debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, making Minaj the first female rapper since Ms. Lauryn Hill to enter the top spot in the first week of a solo track’s release. Minaj also teamed up with dancehall singer SKeng for “Likkle Miss (Remix)“ and performed at the 2022 MTV VMAs, where she accepted a Video Vanguard Award.
