Thanks to some ace on-the-scene reporting from our own Elijah Watson, we now have a full track list for the project, along with clips from the best-seat-in-the-house, courtesy of the performances choreographer, JaQuel Knight. The album was performedcover-to-cover, revealing a fitting roster of high-powered guests for the group's triumphant return, including Andre 3000, Future, Wale, Rihanna, Ed Sheeran, M.I.A., and two back-to-back-cuts with Kendrick Lamar on "Don't Don't Do" and "Kites."
