With the release of her debut album only a month away, Banks hit the stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to perform two of her buzziest songs, the new "Beggin For Thread" and last year's "Waiting Game." Dressed in all black, the Los Angeles singer exhibited a clear command of her live show, pacing back and forth and leading the audience in a dance during the latter song. (According to a fan-uploaded set list, she also performed "Before I Ever Met You, "Change," and "Brain" last night, none of which made it to air—too bad she left off her cover of Aaliyah's "Are You That Somebody.")

Banks' first full-length, Goddess, will be released on September 9 and is currently available for pre-order through iTunes. In the meantime, watch her Kimmel performance of "Beggin For Thread" above, and play "Waiting Game" below.
