The R&B Women Who Stole the Show at 2021 Day N Vegas Festival

From SZA to Teyana Taylor, female R&B acts dominated the festival.

Last weekend’s Day N Vegas music festival boasted one of the most impressive lineups of the year. From Kendrick Lamar’s artful performance highlighting his decadelong legacy to Doja Cat’s showstopping set, proving herself as one of the most dynamic pop performers of the moment, the three-day musical experience had something for everyone.

But most noteworthy of all were the female R&B acts, delivering flawless vocal performances and captivating fans through their soul-baring serenades. While some fans were left wondering why a female act wasn’t selected to fill Travis Scott’s open slot, these powerful women performers slayed the stage all three days, reminding us why the genre remains an undeniable musical force. From Ari Lennox and Jazmine Sullivan’s powerhouse vocals, to SZA and Victoria Monet’s captivating dance moves, here are some of our favorite performances from this year’s female R&B acts.
