Offset and Cardi B are coming to Quibi. When the new mobile streaming service — dedicated to delivering “quick bites” of content — launches on April 6, rap’s first couple will join Chance the Rapper, Usher, Nicole Richie, and more stars on the platform in a slate of music-focused series. MTV News has the exclusive first look at five dynamic shows, featuring the biggest names in music, premiering on Quibi on April 6.
Chance will host MTV’s Punk’d revival, and as we’ve previously reported, no one is safe (especially not you, Megan Thee Stallion). Migos rapper Offset will detail his love of cars with the series Skrrt with Offset, which will also feature appearances from Cardi, Dapper Dan, and Quavo. Nicole Richie is rebranding herself as Nikki Fre$h to combine her two favorite things: wellness and hip-hop. Meanwhile, the docuseries &Music will go behind the scenes with some of the industry’s unsung creatives to document their vital collaborations with artists from Ariana Grande to Anderson .Paak. And The Sauce is a fresh new dance competition show starring Ayo & Teo and featuring Usher, who also serves as the project’s executive producer and judge.
