On the hip-hop front, DJ Khaled also performed on Sunday night at the three-day fest -- though he was booed off the stage by fans for showing up to his set late.

Naturally, the "Wild Thoughts" producer accused "they" of sabotaging his set, sharing in an Instagram post: "They cut my time short and they had me back stage for a hour and half and the sound kept breaking ... then I heard my fans and I said I'm go out even if the sound cuts off and even if they cut my time short ... I'm here for my fans even if the sound man and promoter don't have there stuff together I forgive them thoe love is the --!!! MY FANS CAME OUT ! SO I CAME OUT !! NO MATTER WHAT! BLESS UP!! #GRATEFUL #JUNE23RD."

In a separate 'Gram, Khaled essentially repeated himself and wrote, "They-- Tried to sabotage my sound so many times THEY couldnot get the sound right on my set and i still stood on stage wit no sound and when they got the sound to work they want cut my set short but I still rep for my people anyone else would walk off stage .. i knew my California and Vegas fans was in the building .. THEY-- DONT WANT US TO WIN SO WE WIN MORE FOR THERE HEAD TOP!!! It's all luv thoe .. love is the --.. I forgive them ... love is always the answer !."

City Girls And Cardi B Bask In Their Bootyliciousness For 'Twerk' Video

As it is written, so it must be done, and there's a whole lot of shakin' going on in The City Girls' video, "Twerk."

The video for the Cardi-B-assisted track features some of the finest twerkers the world has to offer, who were encouraged to show off their skills for a contest last year. The winner would receive $50,000. Not only did the winner get "flewed out," the woman with the best skills was highlighted at the end of the visual.

Elsewhere in the video, Yung Miami and Cardi are painted in head-to-toe jungle body paint (Miami as a zebra, and Cardi as a tiger), and are seen on the beach and on a yacht shakin' it with the best of them. They lead the group of dancers through various scenes- all of which do not feature the presence of a man- so they can live their best bootylicious lives in peace and reclaim their sexuality. During JT's verse, the group dances in front of a mural of the incarcerated MC.

The song itself has been streamed over 215 million times, and is featured on the duo's album, Girl Code. The Floridians gained national exposure after being featured on Drake's "In My Feelings," however, hey've proven to be standalone entities in their own right.

New Music: Billi Phene Drops 'Love Crimes' Off Of Forthcoming EP

Billi Phene started as a background singer for Rihanna, but since then, she has emerged as a solo entity who is read to take the world by storm on her own accord.

The Bronx-born singer and songwriter recently released her first single off of her forthcoming EP, which is expected to drop in the summer. "Birthed from the ashes of an explosive breakup, 'Love Crimes' is an unapologetic declaration," says a press release for the song, which became available on streaming services Friday, Jan. 11. "Envisioned as an interrogation room confession, it tells the story of emotional self sacrifice."

The artist, who cites her influences as David Bowie, Bjork, Beyonce and Lady Gaga as some of her influences, says that she's always trying to push the envelope. Her lyrics range from mysterious to dangerous to playing with the boundaries of sex.

“I’m always down for edgier soundscapes," she continues. "It’s the story of being nonconformist, and not fitting into any pigeon hole that seems to inform my lyrics and musical choices. It comes from my truest self. Maybe my music can encourage others to do the same...to be different, to be honest with themselves for once.”

Listen to "Love Crimes" below.
