Presented by American Airlines and Citi on Sunday (Jan. 29) at Spring Studios, the stars enjoyed tunes by Erykah Badu and tasty cocktails by Rémy Martin. Badu was introduced by Grammy-winning comedian Dave Chappelle, as the crowd roared with anticipation.

The singer, who’s showcased her talents on the turntables, combined tunes by Marvin Gaye and Juvenile with ease. Guests like Quincy Jones, Luke James, Jessica Williams, Deray McKesson, Jessie Reyez and Logic jammed out to the mix.

A crowd fave of course was her tribute to the late Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest. The singer played “Can I Kick It” with more folks replying than Chappelle’s honest attempt at the official Grammy show.

In addition to supporting the UMG After Party, The House of Rémy Martin linked with UMG for the label’s showcase featuring Migos, 6LACK, and Best New Artist winner Alessia Cara.
