DJ DNice is keeping the party going as the world remains on pause in the wake of the coronoavirus pandemic—and everyone is invited.
Since Monday, the beloved DJ—who is also a music industry icon on the turntables—has been hosting daily jam sessions appropriately titled “Homeschool” live from his personal Instagram page, keeping spirits high with an endless playlist of hits.
Offering up everything from Hip Hop to R&B to Reggae to Go-Go and every genre in between that has defined Black culture over the last 50 years, the resident ESSENCE Festival spinmaster has created a daily virtual happy hour that’s uniting thousands around the world under one common love: feel good music.
“I never would’ve imagined that the best party I would create and DJ would be from the comfort of my own home,” DNice said in a heartfelt Instagram post on Saturday morning. “Homeschool is a thing! Yesterday was absolutely insane. The amount of artists and friends that virtually partied with me far exceeded my expectations. I’m feeling nothing but gratitude. Thanks to all of you that supported. This has been a great way to keep our spirits high.”
A who’s who in entertainment and beyond have joined in on the fun right from the comfort of their living rooms over the past 6 days, with the latest jam session hosted on Saturday afternoon drawing over 1oo,000 viewers. The growing list of notable names and faces who have popped in to join the festivities so far total over 100 and includes the likes of Drake, Gabrielle Union, H.E.R., Will Smith, Steph Curry, Janet Jackson, Diddy, Erykah Badu, Kerry Washington, Chris Tucker, Tiffany Haddish, John Legend, Mary J. Blige, Justin Timberlake, Lena Waithe, T.I., Marsai Martin, Jennifer Lopez, Common, Naomi Campbell, Kelly Rowland, Victor Cruz, Tracee Ellis Ross, Queen Latifah, Ciara, Karrueche Tran, Lala, Ludacris, Lauren London, Marlon Wayans, Niecy Nash, Tika Sumpter and so many more.
While some actually joined DNice’s IG Live session from their own IG pages to show off their social distancing dance moves, others hopped in the comment section to engage with fans and each other, turning the party into a much-needed escape by way of the most fire playlist you’ve ever heard.
In fitting tribute, DNice even dedicated Friday’s Homeschool session to the selfless healthcare workers across the nation, encouraging viewers to drop star emojis when prompted as a small gesture of gratitude.
