Kygo‘s Coachella performance exceeded our wildest expectations. Not only did he bring out an impressive slew of artists for live performances, including Parson James for a live rendition of “Stole The Show,” the Norweign DJ stunned in bringing out Jamie Foxx for the two to perform a live rendition of Kygo’s Marvin Gaye “Sexual Healing” remix — which was certainly all the healing we needed and more.

Originally reported by the Desert Sun, it appears some Coachella attendees were delayed two hours in entering the festival. Though it seemed to be due to miscommunication amongst festival security, according to the security, the delay was neither their fault nor the festival’s groundskeeping of which they originally claimed was the initial culprit.

15-year-old singer-songwriter Billie Eilish released her debut EP, Don’t Smile at Me, in August. Vince Staples, meanwhile, released Big Fish Theory, which was largely regarded as one of the best electronic hip-hop albums of the year. Now, the two mavens have connected on a new track “&Burn,” an alternative version to the Eilish-led “Watch.” “&Burn” is a slowly stoked track, and while Staples’ vocals are fleeting, they linger into a quite combustible effect.
Eilish recently told The FADER that Staples was her first choice of collaborator and that she had originally come out of the studio with two different take ideas for the track.“This version felt like it would be perfect with someone as a feature,” she said. “Vince Staples was my NUMBER 1 choice, so when we got him to hear it and he agreed to do, it was incredible and the verse he did is so mf good! He is a god and I’m excited for it to finally come out!”
