  /  04.25.2016

Prince takes over Coachella. Many musicians including Ice Cube paid homage to the late great on the first weekend since the Purple One’s death. Usher also came through with a couple of special covers.

The ATLien took the stage with Major Lazer during Sunday’s set to perform “I Would Die 4 U” and “1999,” two of Prince’s biggest hits—hits that continue charting.

Usher wasn’t alone as LCD Soundsystem also covered “Controversy” during their headlining performance and Jack Ü delivered a Prince-heavy set on Friday. Elsewhere, Sufjan Stevens and Gallant covered “Purple Rain,” and Jhené Aiko also joined Gallant for a duet of “Diamonds and Pearls.”

The tributes kept pouring in. According to the Los Angeles Times, Ellie Goulding took on Prince’s “When Doves Cry,” Ice Cube wore purple shoes and a purple bandana, and Killer Mike delivered these potent words: “Prince, wherever you are, we are burning this to the ground in your name.”
