Justin Bieber Join Tems & Wizkid for ‘Essence’ at Coachella 2024

Tems on Sunday called Justin Bieber and Wizkid for one of the biggest performances of her career at the Coachella 2024. 

The Nigerian singer-songwriter and producer delivered a set at Coachella 2024 on Sunday night (April 14), and brought out the big guns in Bieber and Wizkid, who both stepped onto the stage for a performance of their hit “Essence.”

Fans had been warned. “Coachella! I’m too exciteddd I have a surprise tonight,” Tems wrote earlier on X. 

“Essence” which was originally released in 2020 and recorded with Bieber and fellow Afrobeats star Wizkid,  was a true slow-burner, impacting Billboards charts nine months after its release. Wizkid & co. would reign over Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay in September 2021 with “Essence,” making history along the way. “Essence” also cracked the Billboard Hot 100 and would enter the top 10 (peaking at No. 9) — becoming the first Afrobeats song to do so.

Justin Bieber has kept a relatively low profile since June 2022, when he revealed his diagnosis of Ramsay Hunt syndrome, with one side of his face experiencing “full paralysis.” On Sunday night, he showed no ill effects as he glided around the Coachella stage. 

Bieber’s performance will surely send Beliebers into a frenzy, and renew hope for more live dates in the wake of his health problems, which contributed to the cancellation of his 2022 Justice World Tour.
