The Weeknd and Nas took the stage at the celebrity-filled Met Gala event in New York City last night to perform a new version of “Tell Your Friends.” The 26-year-old crooner kicked off the performance of his standout Beauty Behind the Madness track solo saturated in a stage of sultry red light, and soon enough, surprise guest Nas joined him to spit a new verse. Before that, The Weeknd also performed his other big hit, “The Hills.” Of course, model girlfriend, Bella Hadid, was also at the event and was in the crowd to cheer him on during his performance.
For those who remember, “Tell Your Friends” was originally recorded by Kanye West alongside Mike Dean and Che Pope, and the Chicago veteran ended up giving the record to The Weeknd for his second studio album. ‘Ye later dropped his own version of the song titled “When I See It,” though it’s clear sharing with The Weeknd was the right move as the record ending up climbing the Billboard Hot 100 chart upon its release.
That wasn’t all that went down at the Met Gala event. Kanye was also in attendance with his wife, Kim Kardashian, sporting some crazy color contacts while recent Complex cover star Zayn Malik rocked metal sleeves with his suit to the event.
