Singer, actress and star of HBO’s Euphoria Zendaya had her first live performance in seven years at Coachella when she took to the stage with the singer Labrinth in a surprise performance of two songs, according to reports.
Zendaya, 26, who announced on Twitter last year that she had “stepped away from music quite a while ago,” shocked fans when she joined Labrinth, the stage name of Timothy Lee McKenzie, to perform “I’m Tired” and “All For Us.”
Zendaya thanked Labrinth for giving her “the most beautiful space to be on a stage again” in an Instagram story shared after the set. “I cannot express my gratitude enough for this magical night,” she wrote. “Thank you to my brother Labrinth for inviting me and giving me the most beautiful safe space to be on a stage again. My heart is so full. I can’t thank you enough for the love I received tonight, it made all my nerves melt away.”
Zendaya released her self-titled debut album in 2013 and last performed on stage while on tour in 2015. Since then, she’s focused more on her onscreen career, earning her first Emmy for her role as recovering teenage drug addict Rue Bennett on Euphoria and starring in the Spider-Man franchise, The Greatest Showman, Malcolm & Marie, and Dune.
