Top Performances of 2019’s Coachella Weekend 2

By Michelle Pisnoy

Stimulating music, giant art installations, over-the-top outfits, gourmet food, and more. These are all the things that make up the Coachella Music Festival. Coachella has a reputation for hosting a vast number of influencers and celebs, as well as music lovers that come from all over to enjoy the magic the festival has to offer. Here are our top 5 performances of 2019’s Coachella Weekend 2:

At number 1, we have Billie Eilish. At just 17 years old, Eilish has risen to the top of the charts, winning the hearts of the young and old. She moved the crowd with her eerie electronic beats and dark visuals. Her set opened with the popular song “Bad Guy”, which had fans screaming every lyric while jumping to the beat. Billie encouraged everyone to be in the moment while she performed and then took a moment to admire her adoring fans.

Next, was Tame Impala’s hypnotizing set. The stage was packed with fans waiting to hear the melodic charm and relaxing music Tame Impala had to offer. The visuals on the screen were psychedelic and took a trip through Tame Impala’s consciousness. As the crowd was vibing and swaying to every song, surprise guest A$AP Rocky jumped on stage to perform his song “LSD” and “Sundress”. The set did not end until their most famous song “The Less I Know the Better” re-energized the crowd.

From his now-trademarked dance moves to his incredible vocals, Childish Gambino’s headlining spot was clearly deserved. Gambino moved through the crowd, and even took a selfie with one lucky fan. He encouraged fans to get off of their phones and enjoy the experience, but didn’t make seem to make an effect on the crowd of cellphones recording his every move. Although Gambino didn’t bring out any surprise guests, Chance the Rapper made a quick cameo on stage.

Coachella should be renamed Arichella after Ariana hit the stage Sunday. The crowd for Grande stretched throughout the whole polo field. Some fans were waiting the entire day for the Queen of Pop to arrive. Although Grande returned to weekend 2 with significantly fewer surprise guests, she brought out a guest that would top all of the weekend 1 surprises. After a two-year break from performing on stage, Justin Bieber surprised fans with hit song “Sorry”. The energy of the festival completely changed. The crowd was dancing and singing, a few with tears in their eyes.

Lastly, Kanye brought his infamous Sunday Service to Coachella for Easter. The festival set up a completely new stage on the campgrounds, including a man-made mountain for his 9 am service. Fans showed up to the hillside as early as 6 am in the hopes of seeing Kanye. A powerful choir uplifted the festival goers as Kanye stood on a pedestal for all to see. Also spotted were the Kardashians and Jenners dancing along to his service. Special guests such as Kid Cudi, Chance the Rapper and Teyana Taylor all took part in the glorious moment.

Some might say that Weekend 1 was far better than Weekend 2, but what I say back is, did you see Justin Bieber and Kanye West? All in all, Coachella is a magical experience no matter what weekend you attend.

Olivia O’Brien “Just a Boy”

 

OLIVIA O’BRIEN surpasses 1.5 billion global streams & releases new track “Just a Boy” from highly anticipated debut album out next Friday, April 26

 

“JUST A BOY” FEATURED ON COSMOPOLITAN’S INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT HERE

“deep, soulful vocals” – Billboard

“her truest test of artistry is in her music, which she writes herself.” – V Magazine

“she’s proving to be a name on the rise” – Complex

Olivia O’Brien could go on and on rattling off “lame excuses from guys” that you screenshot and forward to your friends for commiseration, sympathy, a laugh, or often response advice…

You don’t need to ask what to say anymore though because the 19-year-old critically acclaimed Los Angeles based singer and songwriter presents the answers on her 2019 full-length debut due this spring via Island Records.  “I wrote this in a really dark place” she says, “and I hope I can help other people who may be in that same spot. My idea was for you to listen to the album when you’re feeling sad and by the end, you’ll feel better without even realizing it.

Their actions also had her asking if any of those relationships were even real.  On the flip side, you can believe her words, and that’s why she made a major dent in pop music. The purple-haired songstress put up legit numbers, racking up more than a billion streams by 2019.  She arrived as the rare talent who can share a song with everyone from G-Eazy and Drew Love of THEY. to gnash and received early support from the likes of Paper, The Coveteur, NYLON, V Magazine, and Idolator.

Now, Olivia takes everything back by way of her first record. “Obsessed with guitar,” she nodded to influences as diverse as Tame Impala, Kid Cudi, Amy Winehouse, and Fleetwood Mac.  The introductory single “Love Myself” serves as the album’s finale, but it also earmarks the beginning. Hinging on dreamy clean guitar, she turns her voice inward as she confesses in a booming chorus, “I don’t need to know who I am yet. I don’t need to have a solid plan yet. I don’t need to be the same as everyone else. I just need to motherfucking love myself.”

“I should love myself, but I don’t,” she goes on. “I should treat myself better, but I don’t. It doesn’t have the same unattainable note that a lot of happier, confident songs have. So much other shit is like, ‘I already love myself. I’m confident. I’m great’. This is more attainable. It starts with being easier on yourself. So many kids are depressed. I wanted to end on a high note.

Today, award-winning globally renowned electronic music producer NETSKY shares a new club anthem “Ice Cold” [feat. David Guetta] via Republic Records and Casablanca Records. Get it HERE. Watch official visualizer HERE.

“Ice Cold” opens the duality of upcoming Palmtrees & Powerlines, the two-part project that explores both NETSKY’s magnetic brand of pop music (on Palmtrees) and his genre-bending innovation as a creator of club tracks (onPowerlines). “Ice Cold”, with its dancefloor vibes, finds its home in Powerlines, where previously released “Téquila Limonada” feat. A.CHAL, aligns with Palmtrees. Each song from Palmtrees & Powerlines will find a place within one of these two worlds NETSKY has built.

About their “Ice Cold” collaboration, Guetta excitedly said, “Working with NETSKY on this track was amazing. He’s such a great producer, and I’m really happy with the end result.

NETSKY recently produced two cuts on the Guetta’s recent album 7, including “Light Headed” [feat. Sia] and “Battle” [feat. Faouzia].

“’Ice Cold’ was such a fun song to make.” NETSKY adds about the new song, “I remember both Stargate and David Guetta making me crank up this demo in a LA studio and all of us vibing to it together. Working with David was amazing, it was inspiring seeing his work routine and energy in studio and I’m so excited to be releasing this single today.”

Stay tuned for more to come from Palmtrees & Powerlines.

Among countless awards, he became the highest ranking drum ‘n’ bass DJ in the coveted DJ Mag Top 100 in addition to making history as “the youngest ever recipient of the Flemish Culture Award for Music.Amidst a catalog of hits, his smash “Rio” attracted a feature from hip-hop titan Mackelmore on the “Rio Remix”—which would be noted as an unofficial Olympics 2016 anthem.
