After filming the show from the comfort of his own home for the first few months of quarantine, Jimmy has returned to his studio in New York City to do the show in a more familiar location. Of course, everyone is still doing their best to stay safe and socially distance from one another, so his guests are still chiming in via video chat.
As for the musical guests, the late night show has had some of their most unique over the past few months, because the artists aren’t confined to the rules of the studio. Burna Boy is definitely one of those who sticks out, as his performance is taking place in some sort of warehouse, where he’s also joined by a live band and more singers. The different colors and the flickering lights that take place throughout the performance capture the mood of both tracks he performs, giving this medley a really special vibe.
Check out Burna Boy’s performance of “Wonderful” and “Monsters You Made” on The Tonight Show down below:
In addition to his exciting performance, Burna Boy has also been making some big strides on music charts too. The Nigerian star took the number one spot on Rolling Stone’s Breakthrough 25 chart recently which ranks him as “the fastest rising artist of the month by growth in on-demand audio streams.” The major achievement comes at the heels of his fifth studio album, Twice As Tall which was executive produced by P. Diddy. According to Rolling Stone, Burna Boy saw “13.4 million more on-demand audio streams in the U.S. in August,” compared to that in July.
