There were soooo many surprise visits at the 2013 Coachella Music & Arts Festival!! There was Tyler The Creator who shocked the audience during Earl Sweatshirt’s performance. Legendary R&B Singer, R. Kelly slipped in during Phoenix’s performance. Solange graced our presence during The xx performance, and here we have John Legend performing with Benny Benassi on the new dance track titled, “Dance the Pain Away” !
Words can’t describe the state of euphoria that everyone felt while these two ‘legends’ performed this incredible song. Included in this post is a snippet of the soon to be worldwide hit. “Dance The Pain Away” is so reminiscent of why we traveled far and wide to be at this year’s Coachella Festival.
Janelle spoke to Elle right before her exhilarating performance last night at the 2013 Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California (Day 2). In the interview, Janelle gave her fans a little insight on her up & coming album, “The Electric Lady” and talked about her collaboration with mega superstar, Erykah Badu. Then Janelle went on to rip up the stage with a killer performace, as only she can do it. Check out the photos.
VA Rapper, Pusha T gave the crowd exactly what they wanted…a dope ass performance!! He started off with a verse from the Clipse’s “Grindin”, his 2002 Neptunes produced hit. He later jumped into a verse from the “Popular Demand (Popeyes),” another Clipse song, before moving into Kanye West songs “So Appalled” and “Runaway” off the “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” album. Finally, Pusha T moved onto songs from his charged up mixtapes, including the Drake diss song, “Exodus 23:1″. In the interview, Pusha T detailed the producers and special guests fans can expect on the upcoming solo album debut, titled “My Name Is My Name”.
Everyone waited with much anticipation for the supercharged hyped Rapper, 2 Chainz, who was ‘accidentally’ 20 minutes late!! No prob! He all of a sudden explodes on the stage performing his scene-stealing “Mercy” verse, but only after his DJ had prompted the crowd to rap the entirety of Kanye’s part. He went on to perform “Beez in the Trap” minus Nicki Minaj; and dropped “Bandz A Make Her Dance,” minus Juicy J and Lil Wayne. Then the elated moment came… when 2 Chainz hit em’ hard with his oh-so popular “Birthday Song”. A joyous song, for a joyous occasion, at one of the world’s most celebrated music festivals!

The live footage is a little rough but it gives you some idea of the high energy, from a massive crowd of people, that dominated the Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta over the weekend.
