Watch Skrillex’s Bonnaroo Superjam Featuring Janelle Monaé, A$AP Ferg & Ms. Lauryn Hill
By Shannon Carlin
Many of the guests tried their hand at covers. Warpaint played Technotronic’s classic “Pump Up The Jam” and David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance.” A$AP Ferg did his own songs “Work” and “Shabba” off his 2013 debut, Trap Lord, along with covers of Notorious B.I.G.’s “Juicy” and A$AP Rocky’s track with Skrillex, “Wild For The Night.”
Monaé went classic covering Michael Jackson’s “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” and then James Brown’s “I Feel Good.”

Those watching the Superjam were also treated to surprise appearances from Mystikal, who sang his hits like “Bouncin’ Back (Bumpin’ Me Against The Wall)” and “Shake Ya A–,” and Ms. Lauryn Hill, who closed out the jam session. She played her song “Lost Ones” off her 1998 solo album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, along with Fugees hits “Fu-Gee-La” and “Ready or Not,” and finally a cover of Bob Marley’s “Jammin.”
