Back in November, Atlanta’s 6lack offered his spin on The Weeknd’s “Wicked Games” with “Just in Time 4 the Weeknd,” and on Tuesday night (Jan. 24), fans of the rapper were treated to more than a send up, as the real deal showed up at 6lack’s show at The Roxy in Los Angeles. The Weeknd had tweeted earlier in the day that he was looking to to pop up somewhere in La La Land and sure enough, he found his stage.

In clips above and below, the singer performs “Starboy” and “Reminder” off his recently released album Starboy. The titular track continues to do damage on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, sitting at No. 5, behind both “Bad and Boujee” and “Black Beatles.” As for the Album 200 chart, Starboy has retained the top spot in this, its eighth week out.

Speaking with XXL a few months back, 6lack said that he grew up listening to a lot of R&B and that he hopes to help listeners through his music. “I want people to listen and take something from [my music]. Whether it’s relationships, whether they’re at home, whether they’re with friends, whatever the case may be, I just want to deliver some kind of message to the people who listen,” he said.

Check out footage from last night’s show above and below, the pairing a possible sign of things to come.
