Dave Matthews Covers Cardi B, Migos, Lil Pump For Parody Trap Music Compilation On Fallon [Watch]

first_imgLast night, Dave Matthews appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his band’s new album, Come Tomorrow, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 charts this week. In addition to chatting with Fallon and performing a rendition of album single “Samurai Cop (Oh Joy Begin)”, Matthews took part in a hilarious sketch about another (fictional) “new album” that took Dave well outside his musical comfort zone.“Do you enjoy the ominous, bass-heavy bouts of trap music but wish it had a more jammin’, earthy sound?” asks a wig-clad Fallon as nasal-y spokesperson Steve Joshua. “Well stop wishing that, because you’re going to love this new music album: Dave Matthews Sings Trap Music.” Fallon continues on in his best public radio host deadpan, “That’s right, America’s favorite singer slash songwriter slash master of the outdoor jam band brings you 25 of the dankest, tastiest trap tunes ever recorded…”Mirroring old TV ads for compilation albums, the clip cuts to snippets of Matthews performing these “trap classics” as Fallon presents the track list. First up is Dave’s performance of Migos‘ “Stir Fry”, delivered in his trademark falsetto. It’s, um… interesting. “Do you feel that?” asks Fallon. “That’s the sound of my body tingling.”Moving on through the list, Fallon ponders, “…and who could forget the Lil Pump classic, ‘Gucci Gang’?” Matthews then pops back up to deliver his rendition of the track, complete with an ad-libbed “brrrrr” for good measure. It’s just as bizarre as it sounds.Finally, Fallon explains, if you order now, you receive a special bonus record: Dave Matthews Sings Cardi B, before sending it over to a clip of Matthews performing “Bodak Yellow” as $100 bills rain down behind him via green screen. He succeeds in making it sound like a Dave Matthews tune, which is at once hilarious and wholly unsettling. It’s the musical equivalent of salmon-flavored frozen yogurt: it takes two things that are doing just fine on their own and makes them both worse by combining them in a stomach-churning concoction. The cringes it induces, however, are worth the absurd laughs it also provides.Fallon signs off by warning viewers not to fall in the “trap” of not ordering this album, directing people to www.DaveTrapthews.com, before closing with his best “skrrrrt skrrrt!” Watch the strangely uncomfortable yet ultimately amusing clip below:Dave Matthews Sings Trap Music (Migos, Lil Pump, & Cardi B covers) – The Tonight Show[Video: The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon]Below, you can also watch video of Matthews’ Tonight Show performance of “Samurai Cop (Oh Joy Begin)” and a clip of his on-air interview with Fallon, in which Dave explains how “Samurai Cop” was inspired by a terrible straight-to-video movie of the same name and how Ryan Gosling ruined his only karaoke experience via The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon:Dave Matthews Band – “Samurai Cop” (Live)Dave Matthews – “Samurai Cop” Origins – The Tonight ShowDave Matthews – Ryan Gosling Ruined Karaoke – The Tonight ShowDave Matthews Band is currently on tour.
