Video: Young Money’s Shanell Performs at Staples Center

Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj weren’t the only Young Money stars rocking the stage on the “I Am Still Music” tour. The crew’s singer-songwriter Shanell also got her moment in the spotlight, emerging from the smoke to deliver her new single “My Button” at L.A.’s Staples Center. She later stripped down into a leopard leotard to perform “Hair Down My Back,” whipping her long hair around as she pranced across the stage. Watch Miss Shanell work it out.

    @bri_bre, shanell may have knew wayne but nicki was down with YOUNG MONEY b4 shanell…nicki was shouting out YM/down with wayne like 4/5 years before she put out a album, nicki was down when it was really just her and currency and the only reason she signed b4 nicki is because nicki was taking her time not just signing any ol deal plus it was a label bidding war with nicki considering she had buzz and songs on the radio & getting paid 30k+ for a club appearance b4 she was signed to a label

    @what, i dont really like to get into these little internet arguements i dont do the back and fourth it was me giving facts on things i know but since your talking on my comment i guess i can reply then….so you say nicki was down with wayne 4/5 years b4 she dropped a album right? pinkfriday came out last year in 2010 nicki come up dvd which wayne found her on wasnt out til 2008 nicki’s told numerous of ppl who interviewd her she met wayne in 08 so im curious to know how she was down with wayne for 4/5 years when she met him in 2008 and didnt get signed til august 2009 i mean and the 30k for shows b4 she got signed is because her former manager (waka flocka’s mom) went hard for her i mean everything im saying is a fact im part of #teamMinaj and when we got to meet her we took pix and was allowed to ask her questions so im not saying i know more then you but i am saying i know fact from fiction

    Ummm if I was Shanell me and Nicki Minaj wouldve had it out. They been friends for a minute and wont even put Shanell on the track while she is mainstream. Look what fame does to people but anywho she was the reason why Nivea and Wayne broke up so I guess it was karma

    @MeloRockstarr, did drake put on her on a track? NO….so why is nicki obliged too?…….wayne has NEVER put nicki on one of his actual singles and she did fine. she needs to do this by herself

    I LOVE SNL NOW! DEFINITELY UNDER- RATED!

    HER VOICE ON BUTTONS IS UNIQUE AND SHE HITTIN SOME NOTES! LOVE!!

    BUT SHE LOOKS ABIT LIKE A ‘Tranny’ WHICH WOULD BE ALOT MORE INTERESTED FOR YMCMB!

    I THINK WAYNE IS PUMPING TOO MUCH INTO NICKI AND DRAKE NOT ENOUGH HER AND EVERYONE ELSE!!

    She kilt it. It’s a shame Young Money put her on the backburner. & her sound is unique.

    Ru Paul’s DRAG RACE is on tour?
    I did not know….LMAOOOOO
    Damn, Hip Hop women look like trannies these days…It’s freakig sad cause if you like the tranny look, you should watch a tranny perform! They are way better than these fake trannies of todays Hip Hop…The styling is a mess. The hair is an insult to the classic Rick James woman…Spreading legs and shaking hair must be learned too! The freaking outfit was sooo loud I could not listen to the music…Even though I am sure she has nothing to say!
    I Remember the beauty of Zhane in the 90ies, the style of Lauryn Hill, the catwalk elegance of Jody Watley in the 80ies…those are women of color with style and class…Damn , what happened to us?
