When Metro Boomin closed on the first day of Coachella 2023, The Weeknd showed up at the Sahara Tent to lend a hand on several songs.
The Weeknd first performed on his singles “Faith”, “Escape from LA”, and “Heartless” before Future joined the artists on “Low Life”. From there, Abel Tesfaye shot Double Fantasy, the theme song from the upcoming HBO series idol. The artists closed out the set with “Creepin'”, which also featured 21 Savage and Diddy. Check out the star-studded show below.
Aside from a new remix of “Die for You” featuring Ariana Grande, The Weeknd has recently stepped away from music in favor of acting. He’s set to star alongside Gina Ortega in an as-yet-untitled movie, While idol — the Sam Levinson-created series that made headlines for its “trauma porn” stories — should start later this year.
So far, Coachella 2023 has given us great performances from Blink-182, Bad Bunny, and Blondie. You can find all of our Coachella 2023 coverage here.
