Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, was the latest stop for the Love Hard tour, which was headlined by Keyshia Cole. K Michelle, Jaheim, and Trey Songz were also on the bill. However, the Brooklyn show was highlighted by guest appearances by Jaheim, Trey Songz, and Cole in the sets.

Cole, who portrayed herself in last year’s Lifetime film Keyshia Cole: This is My Story, opened her set with the Kanye West-produced “I Changed My Mind” and ended her set with “Love.” In between, Cole, who said she will release her eighth album soon, was joined by Jaheim, who returned to the stage to perform the duet “I’ve Changed.” Perhaps the night’s biggest surprise was when Cole, who had one outfit change during her set, introduced Bronx hip-hop artist A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, who performed two songs. Cole twerked onstage as Connie Diiamond and Remy Ma performed their single “Ghetto & Ratchet” to the delight of the performers and the audience. Cole also performed her hits “Heaven Sent,” “Let It Go,” and “Shoulda Let You Go.”

Trey Songz was joined onstage by Harlem’s Jim Jones, and Brooklyn’s Lola Brooke and Capella Grey, who all performed their respective songs. Brooklyn hip-hop legend Fabolous joined Songz for “Say Aah.”

Jaheim performed his hits “Put That Woman First,” “Fabulous,” “Anything,” and “Just in Case.” He was joined on stage by media personality and singer Ms. Jones for the song “Waitin’ On You.” 

K. Michelle, who first gained fame on the reality show “Love & Hip Hop,” opened the concert.

The Love Hard tour is in Charlotte on Thursday, Columbia on Friday, Hampton on Saturday, and Philadelphia on Sunday. Other stops include Houston, Cole’s hometown of Oakland, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and New Orleans, before wrapping in Savannah, Georgia in June. Visit Ticketmaster to purchase tickets for the tour.

In addition to being the home of the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets and the WNBA’s New York Liberty, Barclays Center, the billion-dollar Brooklyn arena also hosts some of the world’s biggest tours, including the Pink Friday 2 world tour on April 4 and April 5 and the Strength of a Woman Festival & Summit featuring Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, Jill Scott, and more on May 11.
