DJ Khaled, Migos & H.E.R. Kick Off 2021 Billboard Music Awards With 'We Going Crazy'

On Sunday night (May 23), DJ Khaled, Migos, and H.E.R. kicked off the 2021 Billboard Music Awards with a smoldering performance of their new anthem "We Going Crazy."

Residing on DJ Khaled's latest album, Khaled Khaled, the Shawty Lo-sampled record received thunderous applause from the fans watching outside the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. With drummers and horn players anchoring the live effort, the trio of stars fed off the crowd's momentum and punched in an electric effort. 

Earlier this month, Khaled secured his third No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 with Khaled Khaled. The album featured hip-hop heavyweights Jay-Z, Nas, Drake and Lil Wayne while also housing young superstars, including Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Baby, Roddy Ricch and more. 

"He's a young icon," Khaled said about Roddy Ricch in an interview with Billboard last month. "When the vocals came in, I lost my mind. "We ended up making something incredible."

As for Migos, they will be dropping their long-awaited album Culture III on June 11, while H.E.R. is currently prepping her debut endeavor.
