Chicago’s V103 brought some of the biggest icons in R&B and rap to the Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island on Saturday night, for their fourth annual Summer Block Party. While the burgers and dogs stayed at home, V103 served up a night of live music that fans will not soon forget.

With a headlining performance from Keith Sweat, which saw surprise appearances from Tank and Chicago’s own R. Kelly, fans also caught lengthy and memorable sets from Ne-Yo, Ja Rule, Ashanti, Brandy and more. Whether it was Brandy’s vocals that blew you away, or Ja Rule & Ashanti’s duets or even Ne-Yo riding a female fan on stage piggy back style (you read that correctly), the entertaining night was full of highlights.

Check out our photos from last night’s performance below.
