Wiz Khalifa and Swae Lee Perform “Hopeless Romantic” on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’
Just about a week removed from unleashing his eagerly awaited Rolling Papers 2 album, Wiz Khalifa hits the stage on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform the LP's Swae Lee-assisted single, "Hopeless Romantic." Naturally, Lee joins him onstage to deliver a dope live rendition of the track.
Before jumping into the performance, here's a bit of background on the track. The tune is produced by Young Chop and CBmix and it's fueled by electric guitar. Thematically, the song focuses on Wiz and Lee's tendency to attract overly romantic suitors and their willingness to maybe accommodate that irrepressible attraction.
Getting back to the performance, it's one that finds both spitting over a live band version of the song's mellow instrumental. While both performers bring energy to the stage, the performance retains the laid back vibe of the track itself. Wiz's lyrics, of course, are ultra-smooth.
"We get aggressive/You be undressing/Making a mess and/Cleaning it up when we done/I got a serious question/Do you like sex? If you thinking yes," he spits.
