David Guetta Adds More Hip Hop At Coachella With Surprise Appearances

David Guetta‘s appearance at Coachella was much anticipated, and Guetta did not disappoint.

The popular French DJ played his set at Sunday’s Coachella performances and had a few surprises for the audience.

Guetta, who has worked with such diverse stars as Nicki Minaj, Snoop Dogg, and Skylar Grey, “vowed to add a significant amount of hip hop” to his set for the second weekend of Coachella after being inspired by Flosstradamus’ set, according to Your EDM.

In an interview with Billboard, Guetta shared “I’ve changed my set completely, partly because I’m playing in a U.S. environment and partly because I see why everyone goes crazy for rap music in the middle of a house set. It makes the moment.”

Guetta admitted, “As I introduce more urban elements, trap remixes and so on, the energy level goes through the roof. With American crowds, hip-hop is the weak spot.”

So, how exactly did Guetta add some more hip hop to his set? With a surprise appearance by “Anaconda” rapper, Nicki Minaj.

Minaj made a guest appearance during Guetta’s set while he was playing his latest hit with the “Truffle Butter” star, “Hey Mama.”

Coachella goers were a little disappointed, though. While Minaj seemed to be promoting her latest single with Guetta, she didn’t actually perform.

According to Mashable, “Minaj lip synced a verse, blew a kiss and left.”

But that wasn’t the only surprise Guetta had on Sunday. None other than Queen Bey herself stopped by backstage to show support for the Coachella performer.

The appearance of Beyonce backstage with Guetta got the Twitter-verse talking about a possible Guetta-Bey collaboration.

Despite his guests not performing with him, Guetta’s set seemed to be a hit.

Guetta used Coachella as a way to support his latest album, Listen. The album features tracks with more than just Nicki Minaj including Sia, John Legend, Emeli Sandé, Ryan Tedder, Sam Martin, and Nico & Vinz.

According to Clizbeats, “The album sees Guetta expanding his musical boundaries, challenging the dance music community with A-list collaborators, as well as genre-spanning emerging talent, all while staying true to his masterful pop and club roots.”

David Guetta’s close out of the famed music festival was not his first appearance at Coachella, and with the enthusiasm showed by the crowd, it most surely won’t be his last.
