You never know who’s going to surprise at Coachella. R. Kelly turned plenty of heads when he appeared during Phoenix’s headlining set on Saturday.
Following a full day of performances from 2 Chainz, Pusha T, and Action Bronson, the R&B icon brought more heat to the desert. He joined the French band on the main stage for a mash-up of his hit “Ignition” and their single “1901.”
“Can get a toot toot, can I get a beep beep?” Kellz asked the sea of festivalgoers, who sang along.
He kept it going with a mix of “I’m a Flirt” and “Chloroform” off Phoenix’s upcoming album, Bankrupt!
Katy Perry tweeted about the surreal moment. “Production value has really gone up at Coochella, it felt like R Kelly was really there! #rkellyhologram,” joked the pop star.
Kellz will also play the Pitchfork Festival and Bonnaroo this summer. Watch footage from his surprise set below.
