The Weeknd took the stage at Coachella on Sunday — just 12 days after he was announced as the iconic festival’s third headliner.
The “Blinding Lights” singer signed on to replace Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, who unceremoniously dropped out of the event.
During The Weeknd’s futuristic set, which he shared with the newly reunited trio Swedish House Mafia, he performed his verse from Ye’s “Hurricane” as an apparent nod to his absent collaborator.
Although Ye has not clarified why he withdrew from the lineup, he threatened to drop out in February unless fellow headliner Billie Eilishapologized to Travis Scott for a comment that Ye perceived as a diss.
Eilish declined to do so because she “literally never said a thing about Travis” and “was just helping a fan,” in her words.
