You probably know ILoveMakonnen best from his breakthrough hit “Tuesday,” which came out of no where to be one of the surprise hits of 2014. It probably didn’t hurt that the track featured Drake as the featured guest.
ILoveMakonnen, whose real name is Makonnen Sheran, was a replacement for Jungle, who had to drop off due to another conflict. The younger fans who cheered eagerly in the front of the crowd were clearly pleased with his presence, although Makonnen didn’t do much for me at all. All those who watched his set were having a lot of fun, predictably erupting once “Tuesday” was played. It will be interesting to see what Makonnen does from here on out, and if he can replicate the success of “Tuesday.”
Find some photos from his set posted below.
