Rihanna, Kehlani, Sevyn, Tinashe & More Storm Coachella 2017

As if the desert wasn’t hot enough on the first weekend of Coachella 2017, some of R&B’s sexiest starlets stormed the annual spring festival to enjoy the good vibes.

While only a few of our favorites were actually on the bill, like Kehlani and NAO, others–like Rihanna–made surprise appearances, and some were there to attend the brand events, like Solange and Tinashe.

During her Sunday night set, Kehlani rocked a lose fitting white outfit that had ‘Find Our Girls’ written on her top, and ‘Solidarity’ down the leg of her pants.

Rihanna had social media in a craze over her shimmering full body suit with low cut Gucci tank top and jean shorts on Day 2, and she was seen turning up in the crowd to Kendrick Lamar’s set on Day 3.

The Weeknd, who came out to perform with XO producer-turned-artist NAV, spent some quality time with girlfriend Selena Gomez backstage. Singers like Sevyn Streeter, SZA, Christina Milian, Justine Skye and more all were in attendance as well to take in the performances and mingle during the events.

Buzzing teen singer-songwriter Khalid caught up with Solange and Kehlani, who also spent some time with Sevyn and SZA on Day 2. Jhené Aiko and her sister Mila J were also hanging around. Jhené posted a photo on Instagram that said her body was in Coachella but her heart is at the Lightning in a Bottle Festival, which is coming up on Memorial Day Weekend.

Check out all their festive fun with the photos and video footage below.

ThisisRnB Nights: Sevyn Streeter Heats Up New York City on “Girl Disrupted Tour”

“Tonight, we’re gonna disrupt all your problems, all your worries, and expose all your weak boyfriends and girlfriends,” Sevyn Streeter told the packed house at B.B. Kings Blues Club & Grill in New York City’s Times Square on Thursday night (Jan. 19).  The sexy R&B songstress was on the sixth stop of her “Girl Disrupted Tour,” which is in promotion of her forthcoming debut album of the same name, and Sevyn gave the audience EVERYTHING.

Following an opening set from her friend, collaborator, and fellow R&B singer/songwriter Lonny Bereal, the Florida native was introduced to the stage by DJ Knockout. Confidently strutting to the front of the stage in a black hooded top, Sevyn received a roaring applause. The fan energy was all the way up as she commanded the venue with a rock-themed, turn-up twist on her Girl Disrupted single “Prolly,” which had the crowd literally jumping in the air.  Next, she hit them with the Shoulda Been There-favorite “Boomerang,” as fans sang along word-for-word.

Even though Sevyn is just getting ready to release her debut album, her catalog is strong, thanks to her 2 previous EPs, and she ran through favorites like “nEXt,” “Shattered,” “B.A.N.S,” “Just Being Honest,” and “Sex On The Ceiling,” which she called on a male audience member to join her on stage and gave him a memorable lap dance. She even showed off her Miss. Streeter if you’re Nasty side, planting 7 kisses on his face and neck.

After turning up the heat on the stage with her male visitor, Sevyn took a serious turn, telling fans about her love for singer-songwriters, which segued into her cover of Lauryn Hill’s classic, “Ex-Factor.” Allowing the audience to join in, she broke it down acapella showing off her gritty, soulful vocals, and by the end Sevyn was nearly in tears.

Streeter also treated the audience to her popular cover of Tory Lanez’ “Say It,” and new songs like “My Love for You,” “D4L,” and “Before I Do.”  Plus she previewed 2 more cuts off her forthcoming LP, the anticipated August Alsina-assisted “Been A Minute,” and the Ty Dolla $ign featured “Fallen.”

Speaking about her forthcoming album, Girl Disrupted, and the reason she needed to live her life to write the best material, Sevyn told the audience: “Girl Disrupted really did disrupt some shit in me.” The album was originally scheduled for release this month, but she told the crowd that it is now coming out in the spring.  Streeter ended her hour-long set with the feel good singles “It Won’t Stop” and “Don’t Kill the Fun.”

Watch: Sevyn Streeter Returns To Philly To Sing National Anthem In Her “We Matter” Jersey

As we reported a couple weeks ago, Sevyn Streeter returned to Philadelphia to sing the National Anthem at the 76ers game wearing the same “We Matter” jersey that she was told they didn’t want her to wear when she was invited to sing the anthem in October.

xoNecole was given exclusive access to join Sevyn for her return to the Wells Fargo arena along with the R&B songstress to document it and discuss the whole experience. Sharing her feelings on the initial visit when she was told she couldn’t wear her jersey, to the positive benefits that followed, Sevyn opens up candidly in the exclusive behind-the-scenes video.

“For me to take off my ‘We Matter’ jersey would have defeated the entire reason that I was even wearing it,” explained Sevyn.

“The organization they apologized, we came back I’m here, we decided to partner together and do some really great things with the Boys & Girls Club, which makes my day, because anybody that really knows me, I love kids, I love doing things with kids,” said Sevyn. “To be able to turn something that was not a great situation…you should have seen the faces on the kids out there. We were able to buy them early Christmas presents, and watching them get to play basketball on a NBA court, we were out there having a good time. If I had to go through all of that again I would do it all over again, just to see the smile on those kids faces.”

Sevyn Streeter Sings National Anthem at 76ers Game Wearing ‘We Matter’ Jersey

Sevyn Streeter had a “full circle moment” on Friday (Dec. 16), when she returned to Philadelphia to perform the national anthem at the 76ers game.

Nearly two months after her performance was canceled because she was wearing a “We Matter” jersey, Sevyn returned with the jersey on to deliver “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

With images of the flag waving above her, Sevyn belted out the song before the 6ers took on the Los Angeles Lakers. Prior to the performance, Sevyn reflected on the moment and what it meant.

“I’m really excited,” she said. “I’m feeling great. I’m happy that we were able to turn an unfortunate situation into something positive. I’m singing the anthem tonight. I’m wearing my ‘We Matter’ jersey. I was just able to play with kids from the Boys & Girls Club…I feel awesome.”
