Grammy-winning R&B artist Daniel Caesar headlined the nightly Coachella sets Friday night by bringing out Justin Bieber for an understated rendition of their #1 hit “Peaches.”
Caesar invited Bieber onto a stage flooded with red lights and said, “Give it up for my boy, Justin Bieber.” Caesar marveled at the surprise performance himself and told the crowd, “Fuckin’ Justin Bieber, man, it’s crazy, or?”
The crowd of festival-goers joined in cheering for the groovy song, which also features Giveon.
Caesar’s performance included several songs from his 2017 album Freudian, including “Get You”, “Best Part” and “Blessed”. His 2018 single “Who Hurt You?” was also featured, along with a new track called “Please Do Not Lean”.
Caesar – who recently signed to Republic Records, Billboard reports – will be helmed by Full Stop Management’s Jeffrey Azoff, Shawn Holiday and Cara Moser.
Before joining Republic, the singer was signed to indie label Golden Child Recordings, which he co-founded in Toronto. Under the label, Caesar managed to win a Grammy for Best R&B Performance with HER for their song “Best Part” and most recently a Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 to get for “Peaches”. The two recently performed together with the track’s third counterpart, Giveon, for the 2022 Grammys.
“I felt like I was becoming a label executive and an artist at the same time,” Caesar told Billboard. “I wanted to separate art and business with a big label as a partner.”
The singer also confirmed that his highly anticipated third studio album is in the works, following his 2019 release of Case Study 01.
