The Weeknd Brings Out Kendrick Lamar to Perform “Sidewalks,” “Humble” in Los Angeles
The Weeknd is on the front half of his Starboy: Legends of the Fall tour, with two stops in Los Angeles this weekend. Last night (April 29), he performed at The Forum and brought out hometown hero, Kendrick Lamar.
During Abel's set, he broke out the K. Dot collab, "Sidewalks," only to have Coachella Kenny emerge from under the stage just in time to spit his verse. While there, Kendrick also broke out his single, "Humble."
The timing of the show happened to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the L.A. Riots, which was yesterday (April 29).
Weeknd is only five shows deep in his huge tour, which features Rae Sremmurd, Belly and 6lack. The jaunt will be trucking on until mid-June, hitting up cites like, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Toronto and New York. Check out the full list of remaining dates here.
Kendrick Lamar is enjoying the success of his new album, DAMN., which is achieving some major personal milestones. His single, "Humble" reached No. 1 on the Billboard 100 last week, knocking off Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You,” which had been No. 1 for 12 consecutive weeks. “Humble” is Kendrick’s first No. 1 record as a lead artist. Every song on the DAMN. album has charted on Billboard's single's list. Sales on the record are going through the roof as well, as the project reached gold status in its first week out, pushing over 600,000 units.
