One of many highlights from an A-list-only affair.
Though storms put an early end to the first night of the festival, Day 2 of Pharrell‘s Something in The Water successfully launched and landed in Virginia Beach last night.
A stacked line-up — including, but not limited to, SZA, Teddy Riley, Anderson .Paak, Pusha T, Travis Scott, Kaytranada, and VanJess — was assembled for the inaugural run of the festival. But it was the evening’s host and headliner that set the bar.
For his closing Pharrell & Friends performance, the producer gathered damn-near every marquee name he’d ever worked with — JAY-Z, Missy Elliott, Timbaland, Snoop Dogg, Diddy, Usher, Shay and Chad Hugo of N.E.R.D., Fam-Lay, Busta Rhymes, and Gwen Stefani, all made appearances — for a career-spanning set, effectively covering 25-years of hitmaking in a little more than an hour of stage time.
A fan-shot clip of Diddy and Busta taking the stage with Pharrell for a performance of their 2001 collaboration, “Pass The Courvoisier,” has surfaced. You can watch it below. Stay tuned for more scenes from Pharrell’s first annual Something in The Water Festival.
