Lupita Nyong’o Slays Rendition Of Salt-N-Pepa’s “Whatta Man” On ‘Lip Sync Battle’
It seems that Spike TV was holding out on Lupita Nyong’o’s full appearance on the hit show, Lip Sync Battle. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens actress brought the sexy and more when she took on Salt-N-Pepa’s 1993 classic, “Whatta Man.”
The episode premiered earlier this week (Nov. 3), with competitor Regina Hall taking on The Weekend’s “Earned It.” While the actress hilariously took a few beatings from her background dancers, Lupita brought the heat as well as some serious dance moves to the stage. The Queen of Katwe star dipped it low and even danced as shirtless firefighters tried to put out the fire she was bringing.
To no one’s surprise, the actress took home the winning belt and celebrated with a little whine action.
The legendary trio is experiencing one influential week. On Halloween, Beyonce, her daughter Blue Ivy and Tina Knowles-Lawson dressed up as the group, 8-ball jackets and all. On their official Instagram page, the group praised Nyong’o for her performance.
