Coachella 2018 Part 2: What You Missed

Coachella 2018 Part 2: What You Missed

The first weekend of Coachella 2018 has come and gone. This year was certainly different to many years past since the prominent acts featured hip-hop and R&B music instead of the typical rock.
If you didn’t get the chance to watch it, here’s a breakdown of all the important things you missed over the music-filled weekend.

The Stars

Beyoncé, the first black woman to headline at Coachella (#beychella), was the center of attention this past weekend, and for good reason. Her duet of “Déjà Vu” with her husband, Jay Z, sparkled with their combined romantic chemistry. When she performed with her sister, Solange, they both showed off some wicked dance moves. Beyoncé also gave the crowd a gigantic dose of nostalgia when she performed a few songs with her old group, Destiny’s Child, who haven’t performed together since the famous 2013 halftime show.

Chic continued the nostalgia train on Saturday by playing covers of many older hits like Diana Ross’s “I’m Coming Out,” Sister Sledge’s “We Are Family,” Madonna’s “Like a Virgin,” Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” and David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance.”

Playing for the first time in America since 2005, the British electro-funk collective, Jamiroquai, made an impressive comeback on Friday. People were spilling out of the Mojave tent, where they were playing, despite the fact that they were on at the same time as the Weeknd. Jamiroquai even collabed with Snoop Dogg on “Gin and Juice.”

Eminem closed out Coachella Weekend 1 with style, playing many of his songs from the past 20 years of his career. He collabed with many other artists during his set including Dr. Dre (singing “Nothing But A G Thang” and “California Love”), Skylar Grey (singing “Stan”), Beyoncé (singing “Walk on Water”), and Rihanna (singing “Love The Way You Lie”).

The Drama

The Weeknd broke down and teared up during his performance of “Call Out My Name.” The song is widely rumored to be about his ex, Selena Gomez; so, did he just get caught up in his performance, or is he still broken up over Selena? Maybe we should ask Bella Hadid.

Kendall Jenner and Blake Griffin, who have been seeing each other since August, seemed to be deliberately avoiding each other at Coachella. They each arrived separately and didn’t talk to each other for the entire party. Is it just a temporary break, or is their relationship on the ropes?
