Weekend One of Coachella is over, and while it was more or less of the same … there were a few surprises worth writing about.
For starters, who in the hell would have predicted headliners Phoenix bringing out R. Kelly … yes, R. Kelly … to do a mashup of their hit “1901”, with Kelly’s “Ignition Remix”? It certainly shocked the crowd, but not enough to stop them from singing along about sipping on Coke and rum.
And how about The xx bringing out Solange for a cover of Aaliyah’s “Hot Like Fire.” The surprising collaborative effort was am awkward hit as Solange brought a bit of color to band’s rather melancholy set.
Other weekend highlights include 2 Chainz who many critics and spectators say had one of the more memorable performances over the weekend. Janelle Monae was also praised for a high-energy set on Saturday that featured an ensemble band.
