Watch Vince Staples and the Roots’ Affecting “Smile” on Fallon
From the rapper's recent Prima Donna EP
Vince Staples was the musical guest on last night’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, performing “Smile,” a standout from his recent Prima Donna EP. The song had to be trimmed down for its late-night appearance, but with the Roots as Staples’ backing band, it took on a new dimension of wailing urgency. Staples himself channels intense emotion while remaining almost fixed to the stage. Watch below.
