Lil’ Kim is having the best weekend ever. On the same day she released her new single “Spicy” (featuring Fabolous), the Queen Bee performed the song while walking out boxer Deontay Wilder to his big fight on Saturday night (March 3).
The Main Event took place at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center where Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) was set to fight his opponent Luis Ortiz (28-1, 24 KOs).
In the video above, Kim begins her performance with a quick one-liner from her 1996 song “Queen Bitch.” She then segues into “Spicy” as she slowly walked to the ring with Wilder (who was wearing a gold mask) and his team walking behind her.

On Instagram, Kim posted a video her walk out and shouted out Wilder (aka "the Bronze Bomber"). "Just walked out my boy, boxer and heavy weight champion the world @bronzebomber while I introduced my new track SPICY ft @myfabolouslife!!!" she wrote in the caption.
In the end, Lil' Kim proved to be a good luck charm for Wilder as he defeated Ortiz to remain undefeated and retain his WBC title. Wilder hit Ortiz with two vicious combos to the chin, which sent him to the floor in the tenth round.
"Luis Ortiz is definitely a crafty guy," said a victorious Wilder. "He put up a great fight. We knew we had to wear him down. I showed everyone I can take a punch."
All and all, Deontay Wilder and Lil' Kim came out big winners on Saturday at the Barclays Center.
