On the eve of his album release, Lil Yachty took over the outdoor stage on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” to perform his ’80s-inspired single “Bring It Back.”
Reenacting the retro music video, Lil Boat actually brought fans back to his high school days. Dressed in a vintage pastel blue and white tuxedo with a ruffled shirt, the Grammy-nominated rapper was backed by a live band. Rocking a corsage, the red-braided MC shimmied across the stage with a prom theme as his background.
It’s a big day for the straight-edge 19-year-old Atlanta native, who just released his debut album, Teenage Emotions. The 21-track project features an array of stars, including Migos (“Peek a Boo”), Diplo (“Forever Young”), Sonyae Elise (“Momma”), and YG and Kamaiyah (“All Around Me”).
Up next, Yachty will bring his live show across the country on his “Teenage Tour,” which kicks off Aug. 11 in Dallas. The run will hit New York, Boston, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles before ending Sept. 24 in Vancouver.
