Selena Gomez Makes Surprise Coachella Debut With Cardi B

The first weekend of Coachella has gone off with a bang, with Selena Gomez making a surprise appearance at the festival in Palm Springs, California.

Hitting the stage alongside Cardi B, DJ Snake, and Ozuna to perform their 2018 reggaeton hit “Taki Taki,” the crowd went wild over the star's appearance at the popular music festival.

Looking stylish in a white double-breasted blazer, matching pants and a Victorian-style white lace top, the performance marked the star's first ever Coachella appearance, and the first time she has performed in almost a year.

Gomez was last seen onstage with close friend Taylor Swift on her Reputation tour in May 2018, and later revealed she would be taking time away from the spotlight to focus on her mental health.

"As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given,” she wrote at the time of the announcement.

“Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember -- negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings."

The performance also marked Cardi B's second Coachella appearance, with the first being last year, just three months before she gave birth to daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus -- whom she shares with husband, Migos rapper Offset.

Coachella will return for its second and final weekend from April 19-21.
