Ariana Grande And Nicki Minaj Get Their Workout On And Slay New Song ‘Side To Side’ At VMAs

We need to join this spin cycle class.

Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj performed their new song "Side to Side" during Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards. This is the latest single off Ariana's album, Dangerous Woman.

Grande and her crew — decked out in pink leotards — began the performance in the midst of their intense spin cycle class. How they managed to stand up on a tiny bike seat in heels is kind of mind blowing. Definitely do not attempt that at home.


The instructor wasn't done with her workout yet, though. She soon joined in with her assistants to get in some free-weight action. Juggling those vocals with heavy weights is no easy task, but Grande made it look seamless. 

As Grande drifted into her chorus on top of a custom pink pommel horse, Nicki Minaj joined in with her own pink leotard crew. As she made it to the stage, Grande then joined her as Nicki shouted out some fans in the audience. This is definitely a workout class we need to sign up for. 

You can catch their VMAs performance below:

After the VMAs ended, Grande premiered the new music video for "Side to Side" as well. Check it out!
