On Saturday starting at 5 p.m., the DJ spun tunes on Instagram Live for what wound up being 100,000 visitors, including Rihanna, Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige, Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Mark Zuckerberg, Diddy, Jimmy Fallon and more. Presidential candidates Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders even popped in virtually, and John Legend and Common made guest appearances.
The set, “Homeschool at Club Quarantine,” wound up lasting for a marathon nine-plus hours into Sunday morning. (The DJ did take a quick dinner break).
Also at the Saturday digital dance marathon were stars including Naomi Campbell, Lenny Kravitz, Alex Rodriguez, and Ellen DeGeneres (who posted online of the digital do, “Everyone is there. It’s the biggest party in the world”).
The hip hop world has been embracing the bash, with guests including rappers from Big Daddy Kane to Bun B, and D-Nice used the Saturday party to preview new music by Childish Gambino (a.k.a Donald Glover).
D-Nice has been spinning an eclectic mix of crowd-pleasing tunes, from Stevie Wonder (who was also a visitor to the Instagram Live feed) to a Kenny Rogers tribute.
Diddy and Roc Nation’s Lenny S. have even had booze like Ciroc and Jay-Z’s Ace of Spades delivered during his sets.
