R&B music’s sexiest stars stormed the annual spring festival to enjoy the good vibes.
While Kehlani and NAO were billed for the festival, others–like Rihanna–made surprise appearances, and some were there to attend the brand events, like Solange and Tinashe.
During her Sunday night set, Kehlani rocked a lose fitting white outfit that had ‘Find Our Girls’ written on her top, and ‘Solidarity’ down the leg of her pants.
Rihanna had social media in a craze over her shimmering full body suit with low cut Gucci tank top and jean shorts on Day 2, and she was seen turning up in the crowd to Kendrick Lamar’s set on Day 3.
The Weeknd, who came out to perform with XO producer-turned-artist NAV, spent some quality time with girlfriend Selena Gomez backstage. Singers like Sevyn Streeter, SZA, Christina Milian, Justine Skye and more all were in attendance as well to take in the performances and mingle during the events.
Buzzing teen singer-songwriter Khalid caught up with Solange and Kehlani, who also spent some time with Sevyn and SZA on Day 2. Jhené Aiko and her sister Mila J were also hanging around. Jhené posted a photo on Instagram that said her body was in Coachella but her heart is at the Lightning in a Bottle Festival, which is coming up on Memorial Day Weekend.
One of the Coachella 2017 performances that won’t be easily forgotten for a long time has to be Kendrick Lamar’s
Kendrick closed out the festival Sunday night by performing songs from his new album DAMN. for the first time and bringing out Future, Travis Scott, & ScHoolboy Q. He opened his set by transitioning from Geraldo Rivera’s segment that the album samples into lava-hot “DNA.” He performed most songs from DAMN., including “ELEMENT.,” “XXX.,” “PRIDE.,” and “GOD.,” and was sure to include a few favorites from his prior albums, including “Poetic Justice” “M.A.A.D. City,” and “Alright.” He closed his set out with HUMBLE.” then returned to perform “LOVE” as an encore.
