After performing with Solange on “SNL” in November, Sampha returned to late-night television.
On Friday (Jan. 13), the British crooner took to “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” for a special performance of his new single, “(No One Knows Me) Like the Piano.”
Fittingly in front of his piano, Sampha delivered rousing soulful vocals, while reflecting on life. “No one knows me like the piano in my mother’s home,” he lamented while the background changed colors behind him.
Sampha, who’s worked with Beyoncé, Drake, Frank Ocean, and Kanye West, has a big year ahead. “(No One Knows Me) Like the Piano” follows “Blood On Me” and “Timmy’s Prayer,” songs off his forthcoming album Process, due Feb. 3 via Young Turks.
