The Weeknd brought his “King of the Fall” tour to the Hollywood Bowl on Thursday. Following performances from Jhené Aiko and ScHoolboy Q (who was joined by Tinashe and BJ the Chicago Kid), the Canadian crooner performed a 90-minute set under the stars, capping it all off with a dazzling fireworks display.

The stars also came out in droves to support XO. Kanye West, Diddy, and French Montana were all spotted backstage at the Bowl. ‘Ye posed for a pic with Wale, while Ne-Yo praised the Toronto singer.

“Shouts to the vessel @abelxo Dope energy, hella cool,” he tweeted, while possibly teasing a collaboration on his upcoming album. “#NONFICTION great things to come. #JustWaitOnIt.”

Don't Tell 'Em (Remix)

As the song continues to rise up the charts (It’s currently No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100), Jeremih calls on French Montana and Ty Dolla $ign for the remix to his DJ Mustard-produced banger “Don’t Tell ‘Em.”

Over a sample of Snap!’s 1992 hit “Rhythm Is a Dancer,” Ty sets off the track (“Told her toot it, then I boot it like the World Cup”), while French acts a fool—Bobby Brown—with it.

“Don’t Tell ‘Em” is the first single from Jeremih’s third album Late Nights, which is set for release on October 7.

He has also debuted a video for the Shlohmo remix to “F**k You All the Time” off July’s No More EP.

Rap-Up TV: French Montana Talks ‘Mac & Cheese,’ Khloe Kardashian, & Kanye West

French Montana is just getting started. With his new single “Don’t Panic” burning up the airwaves, the Bad Boy rapper is gearing up for the release of his sophomore album Mac & Cheese (Note: the album is not titled Mac & Cheese 4) this November/December. The Coke Boy recently sat down with Rap-Up TV to talk about his new music and new love.

Since his relationship with Khloe Kardashian went public, French has been the fodder of tabloids and even appeared on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” So it only made sense to get his girl to star alongside him in the video for “Don’t Panic.”

“It was just like, why would I get a video vixen when I got one of the baddest bitches?” said French. “That’s all it is. It just makes more sense to keep it in the family.”

He has been in the studio with Khloe’s brother-in-law, Kanye West, who is executive producing Mac & Cheese. “Kanye was somebody that I was supposed to sign with when I first came in the game,” said French. “I have nothing but respect for him. He’s a legend, he’s an icon. I just feel like he has that Mac & Cheese sound, that soul food sound.”

French has recorded around 80 songs including the Kanye and Mekanics-produced “Gucci Mane” featuring Rick Ross and Lil Wayne. “We based it on when Gucci went crazy at that one time, just like went bad on everybody. The record’s like when you’re about to lose it—Ross on the hook, me and Wayne. It’s a crazy record. We gon’ blow their socks off.”

He has also worked with Miguel on a song called “Explicit.” “It’s a crazy, beautiful record. It’s both our worlds put together,” he said.

While in the studio with ‘Ye, he heard some of his new music including the single “All Day.” “It sounds incredible. He’s about to have another classic album. He’s grindin’. It’s that sound that everybody missed about [Yeezus].”

She the best. Remy Ma is back with a vengeance alongside DJ Khaled and French Montana on the remix to “They Don’t Love You No More.” In her first video since being released from prison earlier this month, the Bronx rapper visits her old stomping ground of Castle Hill Projects and hits the streets in a Rolls-Royce.

Khaled has been trying to sign Remy to his label We the Best Music, but she is still weighing her options.

However, she is working on a mixtape called I’m Around, which could be released as early as next week.

“I’m trying to have it done by this weekend, so I can put it out next week,” she told MTV News.

Watch the return of the Ruler.
