Kendrick Lamar’s “Humble.” Gets a Goth-Rock Rendition From Singer Ariana Grande on ‘The Tonight Show’
Kendrick Lamar's "Humble." was one of the biggest hip-hop songs of 2017 but what would the track sound like as a goth-rock record? During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, singer Ariana Grande was tasked with putting a goth-rock spin on the song.
With the legendary Roots crew backing her, Grande did her best impression of Evanescence lead singer Amy Lee and belted out K. Dot's lyrics. "Right stroke put lil' baby in a spiral/Soprano C, we like to keep it on a high note/It's levels to it, you and I know," Grande sang over a piano and guitar.
The singer really showed off her vocals when she got to the song's chorus, singing, "Bitch, be humble," while getting some help from Fallon on the background vocals. Grande also put her own spin on Drake's "God's Plan," singing the song to the style of Mariah Carey's 1995 single, "Fantasy."
In related Kendrick Lamar news, the Damn. rapper is preparing to hit the road with his Top Dawg Entertainment labelmates for the Champion Tour. Kicking off on May 4 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Kendrick, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul and the rest of the crew will embark on a 29-date tour.
