It’s 24 hours into Coachella weekend one and DJ Snake could have already won the top spot for not only most, but highest profile guest appearances in one act. The French producer performed at the Outdoor Theatre on Friday night, and when he dropped hit single and recent release “Taki Taki,” the song was performed live by not one, but all four of the featured artists on the track.
Ozuna came out on stage to perform his opening vocals, and was subsequently joined by Cardi B and Selena Gomez who rounded out the performance. Suzy Exposito of Rolling Stone recorded the entire performance, so those who were unable to catch the spectacle live are at least able to watch the moment online.

With its ample chart credit behind it and team of influential featured artists to boot, “Taki Taki” was well positioned to rack up views on its then forthcoming official music video. The accompanying visual has since succeeded in doing just that, seeing that”Taki Taki” now touts a staggering one-billion views on YouTube. That it only took DJ Snake and company a short 16 weeks to garner the illustrious “one-billie” evidences the heat of this collaborative team’s touch—one that continues to sizzle, nearly five-months after the single’s debut.
Two years ago, Julia Michaels stepped out from behind-the-scenes to try and be a pop star in her own right. That effort resulted in one huge single, “Issues,” and enough winning songs to make a pretty decent EP, Nervous System, that served as an impressive calling card for the … More »
