The champagne was flowing as G.O.O.D. Music kicked off the VMA festivities with a swanky soirée hosted by Moët & Chandon on Wednesday night. While Kanye West was in New York, his crew including Big Sean, Common, and Teyana Taylor held things down at a private 50-person dinner and after-party at West Hollywood’s Bagatelle restaurant.
Other guests stopping by to celebrate the upcoming release of the G.O.O.D. Music compilation, Cruel Summer, included Ne-Yo, NeNe Leakes, Jennifer Williams, Jesse Williams, Eva Marcille, and Lance Gross. DJ Wonder worked the turntables until 1:30 a.m., spinning hits from the G.O.O.D. folks and their Def Jam labelmates.
The event is part of the Moët Rosé Lounge Series, a private three-city, celebrity hosted supper-club tour reserved for local tastemakers and media.
