Pusha-T Performs “Santeria” With 070 Shake and The Roots on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’
Pusha-T continues to build off the momentum from his latest acclaimed album, Daytona, with the Virginia-bred MC bringing standout track "Santeria" to life on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. On Thursday night (July 19), the lively performance was backed by the burgeoning 070 Shake and Fallon staple The Roots.
During the theatrical set, Pusha sets the tone as he is draped in black from head to toe. His neutral palette, however, comes to life as the colorful stage pyrotechnics are on full display. The ominous "Santeria" finds King Push paying homage to his fallen road manager De'Von Pickett on the track's final verse. "Darken my doorstep, they told me the day's gone/You listenin', De'Von?/As I'm talkin' to your spirit, for God's sakes/I'm dealin' with heartbreak," he passionately spits.
070 Shake's shrilling vocals are a striking juxtaposition to the rather subdued set, making all the more a case for her breakout year. Last month, the rising star introduced herself to the mainstream crowd with tuneful assists peppered throughout the G.O.O.D. Music summer releases.
Next month, Pusha T will embark on the North American leg of his Daytona Tour alongside fellow burgeoning G.O.O.D. Music artists Valee and Sheck Wes. The trek is set to kick off on Aug. 2 in Milwaukee, Wis.
