The surprise performance came during SZA’s headlining show at New York City’s Irving Plaza. Chance came out midway through the set to reunite with the New Jersey MC for the track from her 2014 Z EP. The two were clearly as thrilled to be performing together as the crowd was to witness it, as you can see in the fan-shot video below.
