A Boogie brings his #1 album to the Late Night audience.
The Late Night circuit can be an interesting place for rappers; the sheer popularity of their craft often merits mandatory invites, despite occasionally mismatched crowds. Though the element can be unfamiliar, which occasionally yields stiff and uninspired performances, every so often a gem can be unearthed. Now, on the heels of landing his first number one album, Hoodie SZN, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie has stopped by Late Night With Seth Myers for a performance of his hit single "Look Back At It."
In keeping with the song's restrained nature, A Boogie's backing band comes through heavy on the atmosphere, holding it down with solid piano groundwork and subtle percussive flourishes. Going without backing track, A Boogie holds it down with some impressive vocals, retaining a respectable sense of integrity that a lazier artist might be able to live without. All things considered, it's an enjoyable piece of late night fare, with clear emphasis placed upon the rehearsal process. Respect to A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie for holding it down, and we can only hope he continues to capitalize on this momentum.
