“The rapper — who’s fresh off a very public breakup with Quavo — was out at the Santa Monica Pier Friday … where she put on an impromptu performance for anyone who was nearby. She did at least a couple songs … “My Type” and her new single, “Fast (Motion).””

“The World Wildlife Fund is behind the eye-catching event, which began in Sydney in 2007 but soon popped up in several other cities around the globe… The Pacific Wheel at Santa Monica Pier is a regular participant, and it will join in again by shutting down its famous LED lights for the 2021 event (there are 174,000 of those, for people counting at home).”
