Pop music is a crazy industry, even more so in our fractured age. It’s crazy how many songs can be blowing up in some corner of the world, online or off, without ever spilling over into the mass consciousness. It’s crazy how many of those songs actually do spill over without some of us realizing … More »

Danish pop artist MØ graduated from her “Lean On” performance two years ago at Coachella with Major Lazer and blew the crowd away with her main stage sunset performance, where she even managed to bring out a few friends along the way. In addition to performing a solo rendition of the Justin Beiber featured “Cold Water,” MØ brought out Charli XCX for “Porsche,” and danced onstage with Diplo for their collaboration “Get It Right.”

Beyoncé took the throne
Queen B delivered. As expected, Beyoncé’s headlining performance was nothing short iconic. Undoubtedly, it’ll go down as one of the greatest Coachella performances in history with Beyoncé standing as the first ever woman of color to headline the festival. “Ain’t that ’bout a bitch?” she quixotically squealed, when talking about the phenomena.

Moving through her performance with poise, hair flowing, barely seeming to break a sweat, Beyoncé’s energy and the performance’s production proved she’s one of the greatest entertainers to ever grace the stage. The New York Times has even gone so far to call her bigger than Coachella in their latest editorial.
She opened with a performance of “Crazy In Love,” brought out her husband JAY-Z for one of their many collaborations “Déjà Vu,” had her sister Solange come out for “Get Me Bodied,” and then she did the unthinkable. She saved humanity. I mean—and then she reunited Destiny’s Child.
Although rumors of a Destiny’s Child reunion have been circulating for months, nothing comes close to the real thing. The trio performed “Lose My Breath,” “Say My Name,” and “Soldier.”
“I was supposed to perform last year but I got pregnant, thank God,” Beyoncé said before closing her set with an a cappella rendition of her uplifting “Love On Top.” “I had time to dream with two beautiful souls in my belly and this is everything and more I had in my dream, so thank you for sharing this with me. I want to sing this last song to all my incredible, beautiful fans. Loyal fans. Ride or dies. I love y’all.”

She more than made up for time on Saturday night, April 14, when she finally took over the mega-festival’s main stage for what will go down as one of the most iconic performances in its history. It opened with an extravagant college-themed arrangement of dancers, musicians, and bright costumes that gave way to a powerful entrance by the “Queen” herself. All the while, she kept her audience engaged as she paid homage to various factors that comprise her musical roots with hardly a crack in her voice.
Coachella is known for its artists bringing out a variety of all-star cameos, and Beyoncé was no different. Viewers were blown away at the reunion of Destiny’s Child, who performed a string of beloved classics. Jay-Z was also brought on stage for a sentimental “Déjà Vu” performance. By the end of her two-hour slot, some pundits even proposed that the performance was a signal of her creative peak and of her reaching a whole new level artistically.

Beyoncé was supposed to headline Coachella last year. That didn’t end up happening. Instead, she got pregnant with twins, and Lady Gaga ended up filling in for her as the first woman to headline Coachella in 10 years. But Beyoncé promised she would be back in 2018, and Beyoncé always keeps her promises. So she … More »

Canadian producer Kill Them With Colour has tackled some massive rexmies over the span of his career, including renditions of Kendrick Lamar, Bon Iver, ZHU, and more. He’s also put his own spin on iconic girl power group Destiny’s Child for the second time.
In August 2014, he released a remix of the group’s “Independent Women,” which has more than half a million plays to date. Here in 2018, he’s taken on one of their most well-known hits: “Lose My Breath.”
For both remixes of the group, he’s dialed back the intensity of the originals for more subdued, minimalist versions of the songs. His “Lose My Breath” remix features a mellow, bouncing beat that’s primed for a summer dance floor. It has an undeniably different vibe from the original, which adds to its intrigue.
