With her fourth album Matangi in stores, M.I.A. stopped by “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on Thursday night for an interview and performance.
The Sri Lankan rapper recounted her embarrassing run-in with The Roots at a club in Japan, where she hit a glass wall and fell down.
“That was the coolest fall of all time,” said Questlove.
She later performed her single “Come Walk With Me” with some help from the band, marking her first time performing with a band in the U.S.
If you’re in L.A., you can catch her performing at the Belasco Theater on Monday and Tuesday during her “Matangi” tour. She will also perform on “Conan” on Nov. 13 and “The Colbert Report” on Nov. 20.
