The Weeknd & Nas Perform “Tell Your Friends (Remix)” At Met Gala

blame it on Meka May 3, 2016

The 2016 incarnation of the Met Gala, also known as the “rich people’s prom,” went down yesterday (May 2nd) in New York City. The theme was “Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology,” which had every invitee — from Madonna with her (literal) cheeks out to a blue contacts-sporting Kanye West — channeling their inner robot.

The Weeknd was tapped the special guest performer, following the likes of Rihanna (in 2015) and Kanye (in 2013) among others. While the rest of us (read: those who never got an invite, can afford to pay between $25,000 to $250,000 for entry, and get approval from Anna Wintour) really don’t see what goes on inside the actual Met Gala, Apple Music — a sponsor for the event — and their cameras caught Abel performing an updated version of “Tell Your Friends” with Nas riding shotgun.
