It’s been a busy week for Charlotte’s DaBaby, and quite frankly a monumental year. Earlier in the week, he was announced as a performer at the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest (Jan. 30 – Feb. 1) sharing the stage at American Airlines Arena with DJ Khaled, Guns N’ Roses, and Maroon 5. He is also scheduled as a musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend alongside singer and actress Jennifer Lopez.

On Thursday night in Charlotte, he was slated to perform at the Power98 Winter Block Party with Megan Thee Stallion and Fetty Wap, but engine troubles on the private jet prevented him from getting to the city on time. Documenting the tiresome experience on his Instagram to his 7.5 million followers he performed his set through his FaceTime. He also promised a free makeup show for ticket purchasers.
