Jimmy Kimmel Live!‘s musical performances during quarantine continue to get more and more ambitious. Just last week Aminé rapped from a hot air balloon some 2,200 feet in the air. Last night Travis Scott joined the late night show to perform his hit “FRANCHISE” with help from collaborators Young Thug and M.I.A..
He opens up the pre-recorded performances eating french fries (presumably of the McDonald’s variety) in the backseat of a G-Wagon before transporting himself to rapping on a larger-than-life white tee. The song was originally named after the Dem Franchize Boyz classic. From the looks of things, Travis and Thug were able to record their portions of the “live” performance together while M.I.A. rapped her verse separately, much like the original music video which was shot on location at Michael Jordan’s Chicago mansion. Even with the limitations due to the coronavirus pandemic, artists and their teams are still finding new ways to hold fans over while live concerts and festivals are gone for the foreseeable future.
Watch Travis perform “FRANCHISE” above alongside Young Thug and M.I.A. and revisit the original visual below. In more music news, 21 Savage and Metroboomin released their highly-anticipated Savage Mode 2 project.
