Watch Vince Staples and the Roots’ Affecting “Smile” on Fallon

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.
