Jhene Aiko Performs, Duets with Childish Gambino
Sometimes things just don’t go the way you want them to go. From the moment Jhene Aiko started her set at Hot 97′s Summer Jam Festival 2014 on Sunday (June 1) at Metlife Stadium, it seemed like there were some sound issues before she stepped onto the stage.
However, things seemed to really go downhill when her mic fell off the stand as she was about to start ‘Stay Ready (What a Life).’ Despite the obvious folly, she went on with the song and even gain some support from the crowd.
Despite a few mishaps, Aiko went on to give a strong performance. During her set, the California songbird performed ‘Bed Peace (Remix)’ with a shirtless Childish Gambino. The two played off each other so well that some in the crowd even questioned if there was anything going on between them. Dressed in a flowing sky blue outfit, she also sang her hit ‘The Worst’ and paid tribute to the late Tupac Shakur with a cover of ‘Keep Ya Head Up.’
Aside from being Aiko’s duet partner, Gambino was among the main acts on the Festival stage. The actor-turned-rapper performing ‘Worldstar,’ ‘I’m a Winner’ and ‘Sweatpants.’ Dressed simply in a white T-shirt and earthy shorts, Gambino threw down rhymes to a live band as opposed to a backing track.
