If you haven’t had enough of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s smash hit "Ni**as in Paris" off of their album "Watch the Throne" yet, then you are in for a treat with the Katy Perry "Ni**as in Paris" video. The cover is certainly one of the more notable and unexpected performances of the song, especially coming from the blue-haired pop starlet.

During a performance at Maida Vale for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge BBC Radio 1 in London, Perry surprised the audience (and as you can see at the end of the video, the host of the show as well) when she put on a black New York Yankees hat and started belting out the hip hop single.

Sure, the Katy Perry Ni**as in Paris cover might be a little bit odd, but you can’t hate on the girl for experimenting. Stats for Unexpected Hip-Hop Crossovers Trending: Older & Chilly
