Music lovers everywhere were brought home this weekend.
Top Dawg Entertainment's SZA and Ab-Soul, Snoop Dogg and Andra Day took the stage at the Life Is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas, where Stevie Wonder headlined opening night with 130-minutes of straight melody.
“I saw my name next to Stevie Wonder and I flipped my f---ing wig,” fellow performer/"Take Me to Church" singer Hozier told Billboard.
Ariana Grande and Chris Martin hit a duet of her "Just A Little Bit of Your Heart" at the Global Citizen Festival in New York, where Beyoncé delighted fans with an Ed Sheeran-supported version of "Drunk in Love."
And in the nation's capital, Washington, D.C., R. Kelly didn't lose any momentum from his Barclays stop as a trio of superstardom brought fans to the first-ever Landmark Festival, where Drake performed his "Twitter fingers" line alongside a sign language interpreter. Miguel sealed his shirtless set with a command ("Promise me, you'll always be yourself," he said). And Wale, the homegrown hero, delivered a special announcement: he's planning Walepalooza.
"I might bring J. Cole," he said of his former Roc Naiton brethren, before jumping into the massive crowd.
