Salaam Remi made his debut performance as an artist on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on Tuesday. The super-producer behind hits for Amy Winehouse and Nas was joined by Akon while performing the title track off his album One: In the Chamber. Akon held down vocals, while Salaam played the electric upright bass.
The project, which also features Ne-Yo, Estelle, and Jordin Sparks, is nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album at the Grammys. Digital copies are now available on iTunes, with a physical release scheduled for March 24.
Just before the holidays, Akon released his Konkrete Jungle mixtape to iTunes featuring collaborations with E-40 and Yo Gotti.
Watch them come together for the late-night set.
