Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea Perform Together in Chicago

Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea

Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea shared the stage at the B96 Pepsi Summer Bash in Chicago on Saturday. Following Iggy’s set, J.Lo brought out the Aussie rap sensation to perform their collaboration “Acting Like That” off J.Lo’s new album A.K.A.

Iggy’s mic was not turned on during her verse. “I was supposed to sing actin like that with JLo at summer bash today but some idiot handed me a microphone that wasn’t even turned on,” she said.

But despite the mishap, she still had a blast. “Watching this woman do her thing tonight was beyond impressive,” said Iggy, who presented J.Lo with the Icon Award at last month’s Billboard Music Awards.

“We had some technical difficulties when it was time for our song but hey, I still enjoyed the opportunity to stand on stage next to someone I’ve admired for a long time. @jlo you’re the most down to earth diva there is, always smiling & a true class act. wishing you so much luck for your album release!”

J.Lo even hinted at more performances to come. “Too much fun with my girl @thenewclassic tonight and #b96… cant wait to do it again,” she said.

Watch the divas do their thing and listen to their collaboration below.

Drake Brings Out Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, & Tinashe at HAW Concert

Drake

Five years after selling out his first show in Houston, Drake returned to where it all began. Following his appearance at the Astros game on Thursday, the Canadian rapper headlined a show at Warehouse Live as part of Houston Appreciation Weekend. He was joined onstage by some of H-town’s finest including Slim Thug, Lil Keke, and Yungstar.

Lil Flip and Trae Tha Truth got the crowd warmed up before Drake hit the stage with “Draft Day” and “We Made It,” launching into songs off his debut Thank Me Later including “Karaoke” and “Miss Me.”

Travi$ Scott joined him for “Upper Echelon,” and he performed his remix to “2 On” with Tinashe and OB OBrien. Compton’s own YG brought some West Coast flavor with a performance of “Who Do You Love?”

The crowd went wild when Big Sean emerged for his verse on “All Me.”

“This guy right here has done so much for me over the course of my life,” Drake said of the Detroit MC. “If he needs me to perform at a three-year-old’s birthday party for nine hours, I’ll do that shit. I’ll fly anywhere in the world for this ni**a, I’ll do anything for this ni**a.”

Wiz Khalifa blazed the stage with his anthem “We Dem Boyz,” and Drake smoked with him for the first time onstage.

“I’ve never done this in my life before during a show,” said Drake as he puffed from Wiz’ joint.

He delivered crowd favorites including “0 to 100″ and “Worst Behavior,” but it was the Houston-inspired “November 18th” that drew the biggest response.

Watch highlights from Drake’s Houston homecoming below.
