Last night, Justin Timberlake took a pause on tour to join Jimmy Fallon‘s Tonight Show premiere week and naturally, the pair resumed their “History of Rap” series, running through a flurry of nostalgic hits with The Roots above. I enjoyed this one from beginning to end with some highlights being the West Coast throwbacks, the big Drake & Kendrick Lamar singles from 2013, and the 99 Problems/Move Bitch back and forth. Good stuff, per usual.
Down below, JT was also the official musical guest as he ran through “Not A Bad Thing”.
To close out the week on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jhene Aiko performed one of the most gripping tracks on her new Sail Out EP: “The Worst”. Accompanied by The Roots, Jhene was able to display her infectious and unique delivery in a live, intimate setting. The song, her performance, and the setting all combined to bring up “The Worst” to another level for me. Great looks for the fast-rising Aiko, who I think will be a household name by the end of the year (she is, but she isn’t ya know?)
