Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill went old school — or rather, high school — while making their entrance at MTV’s 2016 Video Music Awards.

As the Pinkprint rapper turned heads in a form-fitting blue gown with strategically placed cutouts, she and her beau struck a pose straight out of prom night. Mill, sporting a black letterman jacket, stood behind Minaj and wrapped his arms around her as they smiled for the cameras like two smitten teens.

The moment was music fans’ first glimpse of Minaj for the night, but not their last: She’ll be taking the stage with Ariana Grande to perform “Side to Side.”
