Rihanna, Lana Del Rey, Azealia Banks & More Close Out Hackney Weekend
Rihanna and Jay-Z must have had a ball performing their hit “Run This Town” for the masses at BBC Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend, since they went and repeated themselves Sunday night. Hova stopped by RiRi’s Egyptian-themed set for a medley of the dynamic duo’s various collaborations, including “Run This Town”, “Talk That Talk” and “Umbrella”. The one addition to the pop star’s gig that evoked a bigger reaction than Jay-Z? A giant fireworks display, set off during her closing number of “We Found Love”.
Earlier that day, Lana Del Rey took the stage in a bright red cocktail dress and a giant bouffant, and the crowd knocked their socks off to vivacious performances by Nas, B.o.B, Trey Songz and Azealia Banks, whose performance of her breakout hit “212” came with its own disclaimer. Watch it all go down below.
