The forever-sincere backpack-rap vet Talib Kweli is old buddies with the Roots, so anytime he's got new music coming out, it's a fair bet he'll end up on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon , with the band backing him up. Kweli's new album Prisoner Of Conscious is out soon, so last night, he was on Fallon with the Roots, rapping the languid love song "Come Here." Miguel sings on the original, but he wasn't around to join Kweli, so Bilal, the astral-soul impressionist and conscious-rap hookman, filled in beautifully. Watch the performance below. Read More...
You know when you hit saturation point with that one song? You've heard it so many fucking times over – you know its every lyric and every intricate inflexion thereof; you can reproduce its slick lick round the back of your brain; know, and so too fear the exact second it'll end. That is, or rather was where I was at with Get Free – I foolishly believed I could immaculately reproduce Amber Coffman's elastane vocal; redo her squiggly guitar part, and as such I needed something; anything to rejuvenate the adoration. And one might set about questioning how it [...]

Luego de su paso por el Movistar Free Music junto a Franz Ferdinand y Of Monsters and Men , Major Lazer visitó el programa de Jimmy Fallon donde interpretó Get Free , single de su último álbum titulado Jah No Partial .

Major Lazer swung by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night to perform "Get Free" and promote their new album Free The Universe. Love the live performance with The Roots and Amber from Dirty Projectors, but I'd have a tough time explaining what Diplo and Jillionaire are doing up there the entire ... Read More
If you caught any of Major Lazer's frantic, fun-as-hell festival-rocking live shows over the last few years, you likely saw girls twerking on speaker-risers, Skerritt Bwoy performing death-defying feats of daggering, and Diplo perched behind his DJ table, looking vaguely bemused at the whole spectacle. But the Major Lazer that appeared last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon was a very different beast. Diplo, all suited up, played keyboard on the slow, sultry reggae song " Get Free " while Dirty Projectors singer Amber Coffman cooed on the mic, her bandmate Dave Longstreth held down guitar duties, [...]
It's not every night that DJs go out of their way to perform live on television, but then again, Major Lazer isn't any ordinary brand of DJ. Last night, Diplo brought his production project to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon , where he performed "Get Free" alongside The Roots and Dirty Projectors' Amber Coffman and Dave Longstreth. Tune in below. Major Lazer's sophomore album Free the Universe is out next week via Secretly Canadian.
Next week, Ghostface Killah will release Twelve Reasons To Die , the soul-rap concept album he made with the producer and composer Adrian Younge. Last night, he stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to perform the album track "I Declare War," and he had a pretty amazing cast of supporting players with him: the Roots, Younge, fellow Wu-Tang veterans Masta Killa and Killah Priest, and a lady who sang operatic spaghetti-western backing vocals. There are many great things about the performance, but honestly, Ghost's reactions to that opera singer are probably the [...]

Jimmy Fallon and Florence Welch It’s time again for Friday on My Mind , our weekly blog post where we look at videos centered around one common theme. This is a collaborative effort between KEXP and King 5 News. After weeks of speculation, it was officially confirmed this week that former Saturday Night Live cast member and Late Night host Jimmy Fallon will be replacing Jay Leno as the host of NBC’s Tonight Show . This change will take place by Spring of 2014 after the airing [...]
R&B polymath Janelle Monae stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Monday night (April 1) to perform a cover of Jimi Hendrix 's "Little Wing" with The Roots . It's arguably Jimi's most beautiful song, and Janelle certainly did it justice with her fire and ice take (she was the ice, guitarist Kellindo Parker was the fire). Watch the scorching performance up top. Hendrix's latest posthumous album, People, Hell & Angels , is out now, and you can see Janelle at Coachella April 13 & 20.
A record label attempting to promote a new posthumous Jimi Hendrix collection faces obvious problems, since they can't book him on late-night shows or whatever. (Not that posthumous Hendrix collections ever have much trouble selling.) But someone in some marketing department had the bright idea, by way of shilling the new Hendrix collection People, Hell And Angels , to book Janelle Monáe and the Roots to cover Hendrix's classic " Little Wing " on last night's episode of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon . Monáe is an absolutely magical performer, so any excuse to get her on TV [...]
Since Jimi Hendrix couldn't be there in person, it was Janelle Monáe who appeared in support of the legendary rocker's new posthumous album People, Hell and Angels on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. Monáe teamed with The Roots for a cover of "Little Wing", and you can watch the replay below. In related news, Questlove cleans up good.
Justin Timberlake concluded his week long stint on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in epic fashion, first teaming with Fallon for a new installment of the History of Rap, before performing a medley of his own hits. In this particular history lesson, the pair's fourth to date, they covered "No Sleep Till Brooklyn" by Beastie Boys, "Scenario" by A Tribe Called Quest, "Gin and Juice" by Snoop Dogg, "Fight the Power" by Public Enemy, "Izzo (H.O.V.A.)" by Jay-Z, and "Lose Yourself" by Eminem, among others. You can find the full setlist below. Later, [...]
It was night three of Justin Timbelake' s week long stint on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Wednesday night, and this time around he brought both sugar and spice. Yes, there's nothing more sweeter in my mind than a collaboration between Timberlake and Michael McDonald. The pair, along with Fallon, dawned their favorite blazers for one hilarious spoof of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat". Afterward, Timberlake sang his new Latin-flavored track, "Let the Groove Get In", with assistance from The Roots. Though, Questlove and Black Thought's participation extended far beyond a musical contribution - both [...]
