Kaytranada Brings Out H.E.R., Tinashe & Anderson .Paak At Coachella

Kaytranada brought out H.E.R., Tinashe, and Anderson .Paak for a star-studded Coachella performance on Friday night.

Finally, Anderson .Paak performed “Glowed Up” from 99.9% with Kaytranada.

Fans on social media were ecstatic about the set. "@KAYTRANADA seeing you last night @coachella reminded me when I saw you LIVE @LIVmiami with Abel @theweeknd & The AHTD tour opening as well.

As for future collaborations, Kaytranada and Aminé will release an album together called Kaytraminé, next month. The project will be the first for Aminé since dropping TwoPointFive back in November 2021. As for Kaytranada, he released Bubba in 2019 although he's produced music for several other popular artists in the time since, including Ravyn Lenae, Joyce Wrice, and PinkPantheress. He also handled IDK's 2022 album, Simple.

While Kaytranada's Coachella performance went over smoothly, not everyone's appearances have gone so well. Frank Ocean dropped out of his week two performance after fans were upset with his effort at the first go-around. It was later reported that he suffered an ankle injury beforehand and was unable to go through with the set that he had planned. In a statement shared with Rolling Stone afterward, he said: “It was chaotic. There is some beauty in chaos. It isn’t what I intended to show but I did enjoy being out there and I’ll see you soon.” The festival has yet to announce a replacement headliner in Ocean's stead, although Blink-182 was originally reported to do so.
