Kanye West made a WTF cameo with Jack Ü at Coachella
So far, this year’s Coachella is all about the cameo.
Two and a half days into the festival, Disclosure’s brought out Lorde and Sam Smith, Zhu’s had legendary hip-hop outfit Bone Thugs ‘n’ Harmony and Zedd’s recruited Ke$ha to sing on True Colours. But of all the electronic acts on the 2016 bill, it was Jack Ü who scored the biggest surprise appearance of all: Kanye West.
As superduo Diplo and Skrillex mixed into Kanye’s 2010 hit Power, the man himself strolled out on stage. But unlike West’s cameo with A$AP Rocky – where they shared verses on Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1 – there would be no big ‘moment’ for Jack Ü fans. Instead of getting on the mic, Kanye simply strolled out, stood there, pulled his phone out of his pocket and then walked back off. Watch the bizarre cameo below.
With Coachella’s final night underway now, you can expect a few more high-profile cameos before the festival is through. Major Lazer are about to kick off their set; Calvin Harris, Flume and Maceo Plex will each close stages around the Indio Valley site later today.
