P!nk And Khalid Are An Unexpectedly Sweet Match On New Song ‘Hurts 2B Human’

Here’s a pairing you probably never expected to see: veteran pop star/acrobatic queen P!nk, and R&B wunderkind/aspiring free spirit Khalid. On Monday (April 22), the two released “Hurts 2B Human,” a collab that’s as heartwarming as it is unexpected.

Co-written by Teddy Geiger, the strumming ballad is built on an EDM beat and opens with P!nk finding comfort in pure human connection (not unlike her other recent single, “Walk Me Home“). “God it hurts to be human / Without you, I’d be losin’ / Yeah, someday we’ll face the music / God it hurts to be human / But I’ve got you,” she sings, before Khalid joins in: “Now if we defeat all odds and it was us against the world / You can count on me / You know I’d have your back.”

Those sweet sentiments come alive in the track’s animated lyric video, which features the singers’ big-headed avatars serenading each other and taking a magic carpet ride through the stars.

As if that vid isn’t cute enough, Khalid gushed on Twitter, “such an honor to work with one of the most genuine souls ever. thank u soooo much @Pink.” P!nk responded, “Feeling is mutual my friend.”

“Hurts 2B Human” is the title track from P!nk’s upcoming eighth album, which arrives this Friday (April 26) and features additional collabs with Chris Stapleton, Wrabel, and Cash Cash. Khalid, meanwhile, is riding high off the recent release of his sophomore album, Free Spirit, which he spoke about in an enlightening interview with MTV News — check that out here.

Blackpink Had A Star-Studded Coachella Weekend

Blackpink’s descent upon Coachella over the weekend was giving us some major FOMO as Jennie, Lisa, Jisoo, and Rosé took the California music festival by storm.

For their second Coachella weekend, the girls not only rocked the stage — dressed in some absolutely gorgeous black and silver coordinating outfits — but they also got to hang with some of the biggest names in music. In conclusion: All of your faves became Blackpink stans this past weekend.

And what a weekend it was. After making Coachella history as the first K-pop girl group to play the festival with a stunning 11-song set, the girls made the festival their own by going out and hobnobbing with the various celebrities in attendance. So, yeah, they probably had a better weekend than you. But we can’t blame them. Just look how happy they are! We’re just as happy for them, because these girls are totally killing it as they make their way across the US.

The “Kill This Love” singers made it a point to snap some photos alongside Khalid, who was happy to flash a wide grin and peace sign as the girls hung out with him, going so far as to give them sweet hugs as they departed.

They also had a dance-off in the desert, which looks just as fun as it sounds.

Then, the girls even had some time to hang out with Jaden Smith, er, just Jaden, whose pastel hair and sweatshirt offered a pleasing pop of color to Blackpink’s expertly-coordinated outfits.

And then they were seemingly adopted by Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, which sounds like a dream TBH.

The girls were even spotted spending some time with actress Nina Dobrev, proving that they’re really out here living their best lives in between taking over the music world.

Ariana Grande even posed for a quick photo with Rose, Lisa, and Jennie after the girls were spotted watching her set from the crowd. They were promptly invited backstage, where they snapped this cute pic. We’re not sure where Jisoo was at the time, but it looks like she missed out on one hell of a powerful photo op.

It looks like the love seriously runs both ways, with Blackpink rocking some chic “NASA” merch Grande introduced during her previous Coachella set.

And we can’t forget about Diplo literally wearing black and pink to meet Blackpink. He stans, and it shows.

Main dancer Lisa was also spotted dancing alongside Willow Smith — we told you that Blackpink are honorary Smiths now! — at Kanye West’s Coachella Sunday Service.

It’s clear Blackpink had an incredibly drool-worthy weekend as they got to hang with some of the coolest people in the industry, but their success is even more impressive.

Riding high off their new EP release, they’re one of the hottest acts in K-pop right now, and it looks like the only way to go for the group is up. But on the way, we can’t wait to see which other celebrities get some face time with them as they continue their U.S. takeover with several additional dates over the next couple of weeks.

Blackpink is the revolution, after all.

Metro Boomin And Gunna Are Flex-tra Terrestrials In ‘Space Cadet’ Video

Metro Boomin and Gunna are unlike anyone in this world. It’s all in their dress and demeanor. They’re from the Andromeda galaxy, originating on a planet where giant fur coats are normal in warm months and being submerged under water for an album cover is normal business. Their new video for “Space Cadet” lets you know just how they ended up on Earth, although it doesn’t reveal what their missions are. Could they be planning a takeover?

The video starts with where the journey began. A group of alien investigators stare at an old school car that appears earthly, save for two peculiar life forms sprawled across its back. It’s a tense scene involving agents in black with creased eyebrows and shaking lips, holding weapons that they don’t if they will be effective or not, staring at these peacefully sleeping creatures. They wake up and it’s clear that these aliens are Metro Boomin and Gunna who, almost immediately, get interrogated about their purposes. Who are they? Where do they come from? What do they want?

“Space Cadet”‘s visual isn’t worried about answering those questions. We do, however, get a taste of what the two unidentified strangers like to do for fun. They like dancing with lasers and bright white lights zooming around them. Young Thug, a possible alien too, makes a cameo and suddenly becomes more mystifying than normal. Could he have been on an infiltration mission all this time? Eventually, their main interrogator, after studying them, realizes that she can remove her oxygen mask and talk to them freely without fear of contamination, showcasing that maybe these aliens aren’t as different from these earthlings that the humans think they are. Maybe there’s a message in there somewhere.

“Space Cadet” appears on Metro Boomin’s 2018 album Not All Heroes Wear Capes. In a performance of the track on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in February, the producer wore a jacket emblazoned with “FREE 21 SAVAGE” to protest the rapper‘s detainment by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

Take a look at the sci-fi video up above. Put on your aluminum thinking cap.

Kero Kero Bonito Talk Nintendo 64, Marilyn Manson, And Their Coachella Debut

Kero Kero Bonito‘s Sarah Midori Perry need not whisper a kawaii word to rile up the Coachella crowd. A simple flash of a fuzzy stuffed flamingo does the trick. The British bilingual trio, rounded out by musicians Gus Lobban and Jamie Bulled, blends J-pop cuteness with 2000s-era video game sounds to craft a nostalgic effervescence that’s taken fans around the Internet by storm.

The group’s latest album, Time ‘n’ Place, pushed its sound even further, incorporating experimental noise, metal growls, and all manner of punk destructiveness to blow fans away with edgy inventiveness. Electronic superstar Porter Robinson is a very vocal fan, and the first-weekend crowds at Coachella emboldened the group’s debut with rapturous cheers and happy sing-alongs.

KKB made their Coachella debut on Friday (April 12), joined onstage by two new touring members who help bring a new element of sonic chaos into the performance. There was sugary sweetness and anarchic meltdowns. They played a snippet of the Super Mario Bros. theme and even dedicated one song to Jafar from Disney’s Aladdin. After, MTV News met the band’s founding three members backstage to chat about their newfound wildness, latest releases, and more.

MTV News: Congratulations on your awesome Coachella performance. This is your first time playing the festival, right?

Gus: Yeah, first time ever here. Debut in every way.

Sarah: We were super excited when we found out we were gonna play this festival.

Gus: Coachella has this cache no other festival has, for whatever reason. For us to be involved, to be able to represent KKB, is a moment of huge pride for us.

MTV News: And everybody was chanting “KKB” during the performance.

Sarah: Yeah, that made me emotional. I came off the stage and just shed a happy tear. It was crazy and amazing.

Gus: It felt like a home crowd, which is insane. That’s never guaranteed at any festival anywhere. To come out here and feel like that is mind blowing … London is great, but I’ve got to say, actually, L.A. and New York and all over America [is great] as well. We have a lot of fun touring America. For some reason, the crowds here, we feel like we connect with them. New York and L.A. feel almost as much like home shows as London does.

MTV News: I read that you guys met Sarah because you posted for a third member on a Japanese expat bulletin board?

Gus: We put a few adverts online, and we were just looking for any singer really. We were playing with this friend who was half-Japanese and half-German at the time, and he told us about this website MixB, where Japanese expatriates in London post for jobs and stuff. He was like, “I’ll write an advert for you,” and funnily enough, the best person we met by far was through that unlikely alley.

MTV News: How were the bilingual lyrics originally received, and is that something you’ve found resonates with your audience in any particular way?

Sarah: I always wanted to do something that used both of my heritages. I grew up in Japan and the U.K. I always wanted to mix both together when I express myself. It just came naturally when I started writing. I usually think in both anyway. That’s how I naturally am, and I wasn’t expecting [this reception]. Even at Coachella, people are singing the Japanese bit. I’m like, how is this happening?

MTV News: In your earlier work, there was more emphasis on cute pop, and on the last album, Time ‘n’ Place, there was this wonderful juxtaposition of those elements with a really glorious noise. What drove that experimentation, and where does that come from in your background?

Gus: Growing up, we were listening to dance music and video-game music, but also there was other stuff. Sarah, when she was really young, was listening to, like, Avril Lavigne. Me and Jamie, we were playing in GarageBand, listening to the Klaxons, CSS, My Bloody Valentine, that whole thing. It was these two strands always that we were raised on. We’ve always just done what we wanted to, what feels really good to do. At that point in time, for various reasons, we just felt like we needed to make noise. We need to thrash about, hit drums, turn knobs. We need to fuck about with our electronics, break things and make some noise. We did, and Time ‘n’ Place was the result.

MTV News: Is there a certain level of confidence in yourselves that helps?

Gus: Confidence or utter stupidity.

Jamie: Somewhere between confidence and ignorance.

MTV News: And Sarah, your growling, are you loving it? Do you have growlers that you look up to in the music scene?

Sarah: Well, I have been listening to Marilyn Manson. It’s just always been there, it’s just finally trying to let it out.

MTV News: What’s it like to have Porter Robinson as a super fan?

Gus: We have a lot in common with him. We all love playing [Nintendo 64] and video-game music. We’re really into deep dance music culture but also disillusioned with the more arbitrary machinations of the music industry, and trying to do something different – breaking it a bit into something really cool, something we’re really passionate about. That kind of marks a lot of the people we hang out with, and Porter as well. All of this stuff about him being an influential EDM artist — he just feels like a mate, really.

MTV News: You guys just put out a video for “Swimming” three weeks ago. It looks like it was filmed in the U.K.

Jamie: Yeah, a place called Dorset. There’s a couple seaside – I don’t know the word but like – things.

Gus: Landmarks.

Jamie: Landmarks! Devil’s summit. There’s a lighthouse. It was a no brainer again, and we woke up very early to do it. We caught some of the good stuff at about 7 a.m.

Sarah: We saw the sunrise.

Jamie: It was actually probably the easiest one to shoot because of the landmarks. They just did it [laughs]. We’re really happy with that one.

MTV News: Is there anything else you guys are working on that you want to shout out?

Gus: We’re headlining London on May 23 at the Electric Ballroom, our biggest London show. That will be super exciting, and we’ll be back in America soon.

Wiz Khalifa Is Blazing Across The United States In A New Tour With French Montana And Playboi Carti

Fresh off of releasing a new mixtape, FLY TIMES VOL.1: THE GOOD FLY YOUNG, Wiz Khalifa is rearing to get out and about, to reclaim his land in hip-hop’s vast estate. He’s announced the “The Decent Exposure Tour” that kicks off in July in Atlanta. He’s bringing French Montana, Playboi Carti, and more with him on his trek. It looks to be a gigantic campaign.

The “Decent Exposure Tour” is a trek of the United States with 29 different stops. It begins in the heat of the summer on July 9 in Atlanta and runs through August, with the last date being August 15 in Boise, Idaho. In addition to French Montana and Playboi Carti, Moneybagg Yo, DJ Drama, and Chevy Woods will also be appearing.

The tour will undoubtedly feature the new music of FLY TIMES VOL. 1: THE GOOD FLY YOUNG. The 4/20 mixtape features two of his frequent collaborators Curren$y and Ty Dolla $ign. His last studio LP was 2018’s Rolling Papers 2. There’s a possibility that there could be even more Wiz on the way.

It’s A Great Time To Be A K-pop Fan In The U.S. — If You Can Afford It

By Caitlin Kelley

Money is the cornerstone of any parasocial relationship. You become emotionally attached to a famous stranger. Next thing you know, you’ve joined a collective that pools the rent on their bedazzled tank or their at-home luxuries. But the intricacies of such a commercialized form of human connection translates to all kinds of financial situations. This year, among the K-pop idolsphere, one of the most fevered fan communities on the planet, tours in the U.S. are all the rage.

K-pop fandoms work a little differently from those of Western artists. Given that idols often have to pay back their trainee debt, it’s common knowledge that many Korean acts do not make much money if they haven’t attained the rarified stature of a top-selling group like BTS. But, as with BTS, a group’s crossover success outside of Korea is increasingly dependent on their fans’ performance as consumers. Accordingly, many international fans are saddled with heavier expectations in 2019 to help their favorite idols break big.

A group’s tour performance can make or break their Stateside viability. BTS has incrementally leveled up since their first U.S. tour in 2015, leapfrogging from concert halls to arenas to stadiums. But acts newer to the scene are starting to make their own strides. Rookie boy band ATEEZ sold out a slew of 1,000-seat theaters in March, while colorful girl group Red Velvet sold out their Feb. 7 L.A. stop in less than an hour.

This year, a grand total of 20 headliners hailing from South Korea are making a splash in the States — with more being announced by the week — and their tour dates largely run through the first half of the year: Winner, Oh My Girl, MXM, Red Velvet, KNK, Tiffany Young, ATEEZ, Sunmi, ASTRO, M.O.N.T., Epik High, SF9, BLACKPINK, BTS, TXT, VAV, NCT 127, Stray Kids, TWICE, and Monsta X. The number of U.S. tours in the first half of 2019 has already outdone last year’s crop of stateside acts, when 18 artists trekked the States. In other words, we’re not even halfway through the year of our Lord 2019, and we’re all overwhelmed.

Alyson Luskey, 25, is a longtime fan who lives 45 minutes away from Dallas, an increasingly common tour destination for K-pop artists. She’s noticed a huge surge in shows that are more local to her. Hip-hop trio Epik High was the only act to play the Texas city in 2015 — and the number has already ramped up to seven this year. “It’s very hectic, kinda stressful, especially when you know you’re budgeting on it,” she said. “It’s nice, though. It’s nice to have that be focused, because I don’t have to worry about flying.”

The University of North Texas student wants to go to KCON — a multiple-day K-pop convention held on both coasts in July and August — but she can’t reconcile the price with the reduced setlist for each act. (In 2018, KCON prices ranged from $50 one-night tickets to $1,500 “diamond” passes.) “I don’t think I could justify spending that much, especially when they’re not playing all their songs. It’s just a few songs per group,” she said. “It’s amazing. I have no problems with it at all, it’s just not something that I can afford. And it’s not anywhere near me.”

Lily Dabbs, 21, is a Nashville-based superfan whose city’s barren tour schedule for K-pop acts means she’s often travelling to see her favorite groups. At the moment, she already has plans to see BTS in L.A. and in Chicago and BLACKPINK in Dallas. She’s also hoping to make it to NCT 127’s stops in Dallas and Chicago. Earlier this year, she even flew out to L.A. to see Red Velvet. (Full disclosure: I met her at that show.)

The college junior feels the opposite about the bicoastal K-pop convention. “It might be more worth it to travel to KCON to see 10 groups rather than to see one group that’s nearby,” she said. “It might be the same amount, even.”

Dabbs lives three hours outside of Atlanta, where she occasionally drives for K-pop shows, like ATEEZ on March 22. But even as tour dates spread farther across the States, the emphasis on major cities is still inaccessible for many fans. “It is still kind of difficult because even if a group comes to Atlanta within a six month radius,” she said, “that’ll be the only group that will come.”

One of the biggest challenges to the multifandom life — in which fans support multiple groups — is the ticket prices. “Tickets for most K-pop concerts, even lesser-known or newer acts, range between $50-$350,” according to a Forbes report. That’s because acts need to make enough money to cover their hiked-up overhead costs while making a worthwhile profit. Tour promoters like SubKulture Entertainment often have to pay for an act’s travel, lodging and venues — and K-pop groups can travel in packs as large as 13. Despite the insatiable appetite of K-pop fandom, it’s hard enough for touring artists to sell enough tickets to break even, which is a struggle that even KCON has faced.

Tiered pricing often makes room for additional fan experiences such as “hi-touch,” where fans can literally give their “biases,” or favorite members, high-fives. Then there’s ticket resellers, who are known to drastically hike up the costs. Right now, you can find scalpers selling BTS tickets on StubHub for $2,850 a pop — a far cry from the original price points.

Dabbs said her most expensive purchase was a trip to see BTS perform at the American Music Awards. In total, her estimated bill was around $1,300 — including a $700 flight, a $400 ticket and $200 for lodging. “I don’t regret that I went,” she said, “but I regret that I paid so much for it.” Then again, she ended up seeing the group’s appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show for free during that same trip — and you can see her in the front row.

In another instance, the 21-year-old estimates that she dropped $1,300 for four shows in one morning when BTS tickets went on sale last year. For those uninitiated, the race to snag concert tickets is real — after all, the septet sold out their first Wembley Stadium date in 90 minutes this year. “We set up an operation room, and we bought as many tickets as we could,” she said. “And that was my entire tax return.”

Luskey points to one barrier for aspiring concertgoers: the abrupt timing for ticket sales. A lot of the time, K-pop acts put the tickets for sale only a week after announcing the tour. In some cases, the ticket prices aren’t even announced until the day the sale goes live. “I understand that they have to get everything settled with the management and the venue,” she said. “But it’s hard. I get lucky because the tickets go on sale right when I get paid.” Fans with less-than-convenient payout schedules might not have the time to save for a show that will sell out. She said this has only become more of a problem recently.

Indeed, if streaming parties are the domain of the jobless, the employed side of fandom has a leg up when it comes to big-ticket items. But this also means that concert demographics aren’t necessarily reflective of fandom at large. Attendance is determined by who can pay. In MTV News’ highly scientific sample size of Twitter respondees planning to attend a K-pop concert in the U.S. this year, almost everyone had a job and saved money.

Stans are often pegged as teenagers — and while there’s a lot of diversity among the age brackets, there’s some truth to that assessment. At the same time, only 17 percent KCON attendees were under the age of 17 last year. Fifty-four percent fit into the 18 to 24 age range, while 29 percent were over the age of 25. Adult fans have the upper hand at live events.

One K-pop fan named Susan Kelly, 26, splurges on tickets every so often. She lives in Long Island, so travel isn’t as much of a concern for her — even though it tempts her to buy more tickets. Her most expensive purchase was a $300 ticket at EXO’s Newark stop during their The Exo’luxion tour in 2016. “I didn’t feel bad at all,” she said. “I was like, ‘I’m doing it.’”

At the same time, she’s been getting a free pass to KCON in New York almost every year. “I do a million different jobs, but my main job is I’m an artist,” she said. “I do stained glass portraiture, and I do a lot of K-pop-inspired works.” In fact, her fanart helps sustain her fandom. She’s sold pieces for upwards of $400, and her Etsy shop already had over 50 sales this year. And though she attends KCON as a guest, she now runs a few workshops at the event.

“It’s people looking from the outside in,” Luskey said of the misconceptions about K-pop fandom. “At least in America, they see a boy band, and they think, ‘Oh, teenage girls that go crazy. They don’t recognize the revenue that the older fans — male or female or however they identify — that we bring in, at least for the Stateside stuff.”

Longtime fans know the struggle of being too young to travel. Dabbs fell into the K-pop rabbit hole when she unwittingly stumbled upon a Girls’ Generation song in 2009 at age 11. But she wasn’t able to make it to a K-pop concert until 2017 when BIGBANG’s Taeyang played Atlanta. “It totally affected me, because once I could go to these [places], I maybe abused that power,” she said. “Every time a group comes, I’ll go.”

To borrow an ancient phrase from the early 2010s, international fans are well-acquainted with the concept of “YOLO.” A heightened sense of ephemerality characterizes K-pop fandom in the U.S. “There’s definitely groups I’ve seen years ago that have not been back since, and they won’t be back,” Kelly said. “So you never know what will happen.” Her all-time favorite group, TVXQ, haven’t played the States since their SMTOWN performance in 2011.

Fans don’t know how long the K-pop craze will last in the States, and the longevity of groups is unpredictable. “I’ve had a lot of groups that I really like break up, and then I’ll really never see them again,” Dabbs said. “So it’s urgent for me to be able to see who I like.” That undercurrent of impermanence means that many are willing to pay a premium to enjoy what exists in the now.

At the end of the day, that’s the main thing that keeps fans coming back despite the costs: the happiness K-pop gives them. “I think that K-pop is such a huge part of my personality,” said Dabbs. “So it’s really important for me to have those experiences and see those songs that are the soundtrack of my life at this point live.”

“A lot of things go on [in life],” Kelly adds, “but I can always plug in my earphones and look at pictures of Chanyeol and be like, ‘I am at peace.'”

Ariana Grande Brings Out Justin Bieber As A Massive Coachella Surprise

Ariana Grande‘s 2019 Coachella experience has been legendary, to say the least. After spearheading an NSYNC reunion last weekend, she surprised the audience with another kind of return – a special, spur-of-the-moment performance with Justin Bieber.

Grande’s surprise guest came out deep into her set as she prepared to move into “No Tears Left to Cry.” She slowed things down to make the announcement “I wasn’t going to bring out any guests tonight,” she said. “But my friend Justin Bieber came all the way out.” The crowd erupted into gigantic, earth-shaking roars as he came on stage and the pair sang “Sorry.” Bieber was a little winded and the energy felt lax, but he acknowledged his rustiness afterward. “He acknowledged that the performance was his first in “like two years, so I had to get my groove back, had to get my swag back, you know what I’m saying.” As the crowd continued to erupt in the background, Bieber gave Grande his thanks and hinted at a new album coming soon.

Grande’s epic Bieber moment rivals that of last week when she reunited NSYNC (sans Justin Timberlake) at performed “Tearin’ Up My Heart” from their self-titled 1997 debut album. In addition to dipping into 90s pop nostalgia, she also leaned into its hip-hop with a performance of “Mo Money Mo Problems” featuring Diddy and Mase. She also performed “Bang Bang” with Nicki Minaj while battling technical problems. But she emerged victoriously.

Take a look of footage of the performance up above.

Jonas Brothers’s New Album Is Appropriately Called Happiness Begins

It’s only April 22, but 2019 has already been quite the year for the Jonas Brothers.

The recently reunited Nick, Joe, and Kevin dropped their comeback single “Sucker” in early March, and since then, they’ve seen it hit No. 1 (their first ever) and followed it up with the pastel, breezy, ’80s-inspired “Cool.” But as the trio said when they learned the news about “Sucker”‘s chart success, “This is just the beginning.”

On Monday, the JoBros announced the proverbial pot of gold at the end of this rainbow: a new studio album, their fifth, called Happiness Begins and slated to drop on June 7. It’s their first album since 2009’s Lines, Vines and Trying Times. Time to get even more excited.

“After 7 years of not working together & finding ourselves we’re back to give you our journey in album form,” Kevin tweeted when the news hit. “Out of all the albums we’ve done I’m most proud of this one. Wish you could have it now, but you’ll just have to wait a little bit longer.”

While June 7 might seem like an eternity, the bros will be plenty busy until then — you can catch them hitting the stage at the Billboard Music Awards on May 1 and rocking Studio 8H for Saturday Night Live on May 11. Naturally, you can also gaze longingly at the album’s David Hockney-recalling cover art, which they also unveiled on Monday, above until a deeper meaning reveals itself.

And then listen to both “Sucker” and “Cool” — which currently sits at No. 27 — on repeat.

Kanye West Takes Coachella To Church And Drops A New Song

It was a warm Easter morning under the soft blue skies at Coachella on Sunday (April 21) when Kanye West brought his Sunday Service to the yearly festival. The rapper’s soulful and holy-themed event featured a plethora of artists – musicians, vocalists, and dancers, singing in great shouts to festival goers from atop a hill. West chose this time to unveil a new song, “Water.”

The performance, via Variety, was beautifully simple, with West leading the massive performance cavalcade with smooth vocals and waved hands. “Water” sounds like the kind of post-Yeezus melodic smash that West does best when the emotion runs high and the punchlines are practically non-existent.

West’s Coachella set was massive. He’d initially dropped out of performing because of design issues but still ended up doing it, announcing the Sunday Service set three weeks prior. DMX, Kid Cudi, Teyana Taylor, Chance the Rapper, and more joined West and the massive choir. The service included performances of Kanye’s mega-hits “Father Strech My Hands Pt. 1,” “All Falls Down” “Power,” and “Otis.” It also included covers of R&B classics such as “Outstanding” by the Gap Band, “Do I Do” by Stevie Wonder, and “Summer Madness” by Kool & the Gang. A highlight of the momentous performance was a holy performance of “Ultralight Beam” with Chance the Rapper.

Take a look at clips from the performance up above.
