Big Sean performed at Coachella on Friday night (April 15), and was joined on stage by his girlfriend and frequent collaborator Jhené Aiko for a pair of songs – see footage below.
The Detroit rapper delivered a career-spanning set on the Sahaha stage, marking the first time he’s ever performed a solo slot at the California festival.
Among the 18-track setlist, Sean performed the hits ‘Blessings’, ‘I Don’t Fuck With You’, ‘Clique’, and ‘Bounce Back. He also gave live debuts to ‘Why Would I Stop?’ and ‘Wolves’, taken from his most recent album ‘Detroit 2’.
In the middle of his set, Sean brought out Aiko – who aside from being his partner is also his TWENTY88 bandmate – to perform the tracks ‘Beware’ and ‘I Know’, taken from Sean’s albums ‘Hall Of Fame’ (2013) and ‘Dark Sky Paradise’ (2015) respectively.
