Skee-Lo Performs On Fallon With Cher Lloyd

British singer Cher Lloyd struck big last summer with her debut single “I Wish,” which featured southern rapper T.I. But she isn’t the first artist to drop a chart-topping hit with that title.

Back in 1995, L.A.-based MC Skee-lo dropped the summer anthem “I Wish,” which became an instant classic for its catchy hook and light-hearted lyrics. It can still be heard at barbecues, basketball games and even on the radio. That’s why hip-hop heads rejoiced when Lloyd, who was a guest last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, decided to perform a special version of her “I Wish” by bringing out Skee-Lo to drop a verse from his hit. Surprisingly the two sounded pretty good together.

No word on who was behind this idea, but it’s a good guess that hip-hop historian Questlove of the Roots, the in-house band of Late Night, had something to do with it.
