It looks like 2019 is really going to be Noname‘s year! In addition to her new track “Song 31” that set January off on the right foot, last night she brought fellow Chicago favorites Smino and Saba to the Tonight Show stage for a Roots-backed performance of her jam “Ace.”
You can hear the crowd who presumably have never heard Noname before absolutely explode during her verse here, an impressive feat considering how impeccably mixed The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon always is. While not Noname’s first stellar television performance, this appearance feels really, really special.
Noname’s Room 25 is out now.
