The Weeknd has returned to Coachella for a second weekend, and he’s apparently having some of the best shows of his life at the event.
According to Hot New Hip Hop, the Weeknd has had incredible shows two weeks in a row, and pulled out all the stops for his second appearance.
After the Weeknd called his first Coachella performance “the greatest night of my entire life,” there was much anticipation among fans for something spectacular in the follow-up performance. They were not disappointed.
The artist first pulled out a surprise cover performance of Kanye West’s “Heartless” before moving into a second West cover, “Can’t Tell Me Nothing.” The crowd was then taken totally off guard when Kanye West himself appeared on stage to finish the song.
You can see the moment of hip-hop history take place in the video below.
According to the Sun, the Weeknd’s decision to bring the megastar onto the stage with him was almost a mistake, because Kanye West practically stole the show. After “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” was finished, West took over the show with a set of his own. He performed “Black Skinhead,” “Don’t Like,” and a brand new single, “All Day.”
Kanye’s guest surprise was such a hit among the fans that some of the people in the crowd who started to leave during the Weeknd’s performance rushed back into the audience to see West perform. Even so, the Weeknd was reportedly doing a fine job on his own, performing a Beyoncé cover “Drunk in Love” and a rendition of “Love Me Harder.”
