Hip-hop and R&B’s biggest stars packed the Honda Center in Anaheim for the biggest West Coast concert of the year, PowerHouse 2014. Presented by L.A. radio station Power 106, Saturday’s star-studded lineup featured everyone from Jennifer Lopez to YG.
Sage the Gemini kicked things off with special guest Iamsu! followed by Juicy J, who turned the stage into a strip club with his turn-up anthems.
Trey Songz serenaded the ladies with his latest Trigga singles including “Na Na,” plus a cover of Chris Brown’s “Loyal” and his remix to Kid Ink’s “Show Me.”
Ahead of her performance at the Billboard Music Awards, Jennifer Lopez delivered a dance-heavy retrospective of hits including “I’m Real,” “Jenny From the Block,” and “Get Right.” She also premiered her new Diplo-produced song “Big Booty” off her upcoming album A.K.A., due June 17.
Nicki Minaj took it back to her mixtape days, performing with only a DJ, and brought out Soulja Boy for their collaboration “Yasss Bish!!!” (Watch her complete set here).
ScHoolboy Q and Isaiah Rashad repped for TDE, and Wiz Khalifa tore up the stage with “We Dem Boyz.”
With some help from DJ Mustard, YG closed out the evening with his West Coast bangers and some OG guests including Kurupt, Daz, and Warren G.
Earlier in the day, Iggy Azalea headlined the “New@2″ outdoor stage, performing her hit “Fancy,” and L.A.’s own Tinashe turned up the heat with her single “2 On.”
