MTV & Bacardi VMA Bottle / Drinks

Ahead of this year’s VMAs, MTV and Bacardi have partnered for a limited-edition Hip-Hop 50 bottle alongside a drink menu.

Tonight the 2023 Video Music Awards will go down live from New Jersey’s Prudential Center.

MTV will air the main show at 8 p.m. EST and if you’ve got Paramount+, the show will be live-streamed in the app as well. Our host for the evening will be the Queen Nicki Minaj who will likely host it unscripted due to the ongoing writers’ strike. She’ll hit the stage for a performance of her new single, “Last Time I Saw You” and  Diddy, Doja Cat, Cardi B, and Megan Thee Stallion will perform as well.

To celebrate the night and Hip-Hop’s 50-year anniversary, MTV partnered with Bacardi for a limited edition bottle.

The bottle features the VMAs’ signature moon man and “pays homage to Hip-Hop for being a “culture-changing, history-making genre.”
