DJ Snake Surprises Fans with Lauryn Hill Appearance at Coachella

As we all know, DJ Snake is one of the top producers in the world. Everybody from Lady Gaga to Lil Jon have collaborated on tracks with the highly regarded French producer.

Nobody will question DJ Snake’s ability to spin out insanely good tracks, but he did something at Coachella last weekend that unexpected (to say the least).

During his set this past weekend, he brought out Grammy award winning artist Lauryn Hill to belt out some familiar tunes.

She performed a few classics from her days in The Fugees like “Killing Me Softly,” “Ready or Not,” and “Miseducation” along with one song from her own catalogue, “Lost Ones.” The feedback from the crowd was electric, as you would expect.

This is not the first time she has made a guest appearance at Coachella. In 2014, she came on stage during Nas’ performance to perform “If I Ruled the World (Imagine That).”

It was clear that nobody in the crowd was expecting this surprise performance from Lauryn Hill, so the energy in the crowd must have been palpable. If you’re curious to see how well the performance went yourself, check out some of the videos posted below. Whether you like DJ Snake’s music or not, you have to admit that he always has something unexpected up his sleeve for his shows. The guest appearance by Lauryn Hill last weekend further exemplifies that.
