Alicia Keys turned “The Tonight Show” into a “Blended Family” affair.
Fresh off the release of her new album HERE, A. Keys was joined by Young M.A. and The Roots for a rendition of her single, “Blended Family (What You Do for Love).”
Although the song’s original guest A$AP Rocky couldn’t make the show, Young M.A. stepped in with an introspective verse about her own blended fam experiences.
“Growing up, I had a little sister, older brother,” rhymed M.A. “For us, a father figure was a single mother / My daddy was locked up / My momma was knocked up / And every now and then my brother’s father would pop up / But I consider him dad.”
Alicia took it from there. Backed by The Roots, Alicia sang from behind her piano and eventually, standing up for her dedication to how “love can bring us closer than blood.”
Keys was also a guest on “The Tonight Show’s” classic couch, where she accepted a doughnut gift from Questlove and talked about how she “stepped it up” on “The Voice.”
