Hot off a politically-charged Grammy performance with A Tribe Called Quest, Anderson .Paak joined Knxwledge as NxWorries on “The Tonight Show.”
The Yes Lawd! duo transformed the “Jimmy Fallon” stage into a living room for the TV debut of “What More Can I Say” on Valentine’s Day.
Backed by a string quartet arranged by Miguel Atwood Ferguson, Anderson opened the set laying down on a couch. Soon, his girl walked in and threw a pair of panties on his face. “I’m trying to be faithful,” he sings, while getting the cold shoulder. Soon, another one of Anderson’s girls walked in and threw a glass at him. “They make it so hard to be faithful,” he sings, but both girls seemed fed up with his infidelity.
Throughout the performance, Knxwledge was in the corner making beats and once things winded down, he stood up with two roses and took Anderson’s ladies away like a smooth criminal. A sad .Paak was left behind on the couch for a lonely Valentine’s evening.
Anderson and Knxwledge released Yes Lawd! as NxWorries back in October 2016. The Stones Throw release earned critical acclaim and featured the singles “Suede,” “Link Up,” and “Lyke Dis.”
.Paak was up for two Grammys on Sunday, including Best New Artist and Best Urban Contemporary Album for his work on Malibu. Although he walked away empty-handed, he was a part of an explosive anti-Donald Trump performance of “We the People…” with A Tribe Called Quest, Busta Rhymes, and Consequence.
