Earlier this week, the L.A. singer Tinashe released Aquarius, maybe the year’s best R&B album. And last night, she was on Jimmy Kimmel Live, with guest rapper Schoolboy Q, to perform her breakout single “2 On.” That song came out way back at the beginning of the year, but it’s had remarkable staying power, and it’s still slinking out of plenty of car windows 10 months later. On the show, Tinashe had a full complement of dancers with her, and she kept up an athletic choreographed routine all the way through the song. For whatever reason, she also had a drummer, who didn’t really add anything to a skeletal song like this. Still, a great song on TV is a great song on TV. Also on the show: Schoolboy Q’s mom, who recited some of his “Collared Greens” lyrics as part of a regular Kimmel segment called “Words From Your Mother.” Watch the performance and the comedy bit below.
Aquarius is out now on RCA.
