Metro Boomin Shocks Coachella Crowd With Special Guests & Unreleased Music

Metro Boomin's Coachella set might go down as one of the festival's very best this year, and for good reason. Moreover, the star producer brought on Mike Dean to play keys, John Legend to sing, and a whole host of musicians to play the trumpets, strings, or other instruments to embellish his excellent performances of tracks from his latest acclaimed album HEROES & VILLAINS. However, don't think that he just played the songs for a crowd; he actually brought out almost all his album's guests. Future graced the stage first, followed by great moments from Don Toliver, 21 Savage, The Weeknd, and even Diddy for the "Creepin" remix.

Also, given how well put-together that album already is, the transitions in between songs fit seamlessly even if they weren't album tracks. Of course, Metro's talent came through in his great mixing to take fans from cut to cut. In addition to his guests, he also played the song "Metro Spider" to call once again for Young Thug's freedom. Overall, it was an incredible set. With high energy, classics galore, a refreshing and engaging visual component with comic books and dramatic art, and a spoken Coachella-specific intro from Morgan Freeman to boot, Metro Boomin did not play around.

On top of all of that, he also played some unreleased material with The Weeknd, who was by far the most surprising guest. After all, he could've easily been the headlining slot himself at the festival, and to see such a huge star show love during a producer set is a testament to Metro Boomin's status, respect, and sheer talent in the game.
