Coachella spectators were taken aback when Labrinth abruptly invited Zendaya on stage for a duet that sparked outrage on social media.
The performance comes only one week after the “Genius” singer stunned fans by performing with Billie Eilish at the first weekend of the annual music festival in Indio, California.
Twitter users couldn’t stop talking about the “Euphoria” star’s performance. Close up the crooner’s set with “I’m Tired” and “All for Us,” which were penned for her hit HBO drama series.
Zendaya thanked Labrinth in her Instagram story following her performance.
“I cannot express my gratitude enough for this magical night. Thank you for my brother Labrinth for inviting me and giving me the most beautiful safe space to be on stage again,” she wrote on Saturday night.
In a separate video posted to her Instagram story, she discussed her “last-minute” performance and gushed about the audience’s enthusiastic support.
“I have never heard screaming like that in my entire life,” she said of the crowd’s massive energy.
Following the success of her 2013 hit single “Replay,” Zendaya released her self-titled first album the following year.
The Primetime Emmy winner, who has focused on acting endeavors in recent years, tweeted about her music career last year.
“I stepped away from music quite a while ago, for a number of reasons,” she said in a tweet in March 2022. “But I still really love it.”
Zendaya’s next film is “Challengers,” which follows three tennis players who met as teenagers but subsequently square off in a tennis competition, rekindling old grudges.
The sports romance film, which will be released on August 11, also stars Mike Faist (“West Side Story”) and Josh O’Connor (“The Crown”).
