Black girl magic crowded the streets of New Orleans, LA this weekend for the annual Essence Festival weekend. Thanks to the Instagram posts we are all having a major case of FOMO and have already started hoping to be there next year.

The fun-filled weekend featured musical performances by Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu and Xscape, but Queen Latifah seemed to have stole the show with her Ladies Night performance. During her set in one of the Superdomes, The Queen brought out Brandy, Remy Ma, Salt-N-Pepa, Yo-Yo and MC Lyte to join her on stage. Remy’s performance even transitioned into a surprise set from Missy Elliott where she gifted the crowd with a medley of hits including “She’s A B–th” and “Get Ur Freak On.”
