Beyonce hit Coachella on Saturday night—hard. The music festival's first black woman headliner reunited Destiny's Child, bringing out former bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams in a two-hour tour de force of their hits that included "Say My Name," "Lose My Breath," and "Soldier," reports People. It was the first appearance for the group since 2015, notes the BBC, and Bey wasn't done there. Her set also included one Shawn Carter, aka Jay-Z, for a duet of "Deja Vu." The set was a year in the making: Beyonce had been due to headline last year, but had to pull out due to her pregnancy with twins. "Coachella, thank you for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline," she told the crowd, introducing "Run the World (Girls)."
