A Tribe Called Quest and Anderson .Paak Will Perform Together at 2017 Grammy Awards
The 2017 Grammy Awards are but a few weeks away, and today (Jan. 31) it was announced that A Tribe Called Quest and Anderson .Paak will take the stage together with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl. Tribe and .Paak collaborated on "Movin Backwards" off Tribe's recent album We got it from Here... Thank You 4 Your service, so the crew will likely perform that song come show time.
The Weeknd and Daft Punk will as well perform, presumably together, as the dance duo is featured twice on the singer's new album, Starboy. The evening will also feature performances by John Legend, Alicia Keys, Bruno Mars and more.
Anderson .Paak is nominated for a number of Grammys this year in categories such as Best New Artist and Best Urban Contemporary Album. He faces off against Chance The Rapper in the former of the two.
The 59th Annual Grammy Awards will take place on Sunday, Feb. 12 with James Corden as host. It was reported this week that both Kanye West and Drake plan to skip the ceremony, over what they feel is a skewed representation of the current music scene. Both rappers are nominated for Best Rap Album as well as Bet Rap Song, with Drake additionally nominated for Record of the Year and Album of the Year.
