If Coco Jones‘ recent performance at Broccoli City Festival was a taste of what fans can expect on her upcoming tour, then R&B lovers are in for a treat.
On Saturday (July 15), the annual fest brought out multiple artists on the rise, including Chlöe Bailey, Ice Spice, and the BET’s Best New Artist herself. The soulful singing 25-year-old continued her 2023 music campaign with an unforgettable show. Despite the weather having a mind of its own, Jones delighted fans with a performance of SWV’s “Rain” and more while it rained, a performance aesthetic R&B singers made popular in the ’90s and ’00s. Ultimately, she was showered in raindrops while the audience showered her with love and praise as they chanted her name.
“‘Twas giving ’90s R&B realness,” Jones captioned her Instagram post. “Thank y’all so much, Broccoli City.”
Like the fest, the “Double Back” songstress received equal love from her followers in the comment section. “Power” actress Naturi Naughton wrote, “I am just so proud of you! I don’t even know you, sis… but seeing you shine makes me smile! Keep shining, Brown Skinned Girl. We, chocolate girls, are lit.”
Justin Timberlake, whom Jones recently collaborated with for the remix to her chart-topping single “ICU,” commented, “VOCALS. Too good” with a fire emoji. BET said, “You really snapped! We’re so proud of you,” while Broccoli City noted, “You singing ‘Rain’ in the rain.”
Other artists called the South Carolina native a star and a legend, amongst other praises. As previously mentioned, the “Bel-Air” actress will headline her summer “What I Didn’t Tell You Tour” starting on Aug. 5. The upcoming trek supports her same-titled EP, which she released in the fall of 2022. On June 27, Jones released dates for the first leg of her tour. In her comment section, she informed fans that she would later reveal additional cities for the second leg.
