”My Type” samples Petey Pablo’s 2003 track “Freek-a-Leek,” produced by Lil Jon. So, it’s only right she brought the Hip Hop heads out during her debut performance. And it’s a good thing she did. Folks were sounding off on Twitter about her lackluster performance and praised Petey (and Lil Jon) for saving her set.














Her boyfriend Quavo liked it though:


Well hell, he better.  That's what bae is for.  And to urge her to practice.
