6lack

After welcoming Tyler, The Creator onto the show just a couple nights ago, Stephen Colbert tapped 6LACK to provide the musical entertainment on The Late Show last night. Showing off his almost unrecognizable new look, the Atlanta crooner delivered a soulful rendition of “Free” with help from a live band. The song is taken from his debut album FREE 6LACK, which is out now on iTunes.

After bringing out 2 Chainz and Travi$ Scott (who’s already a supporting act) in Brooklyn earlier this week, Kendrick Lamar had another surprise up his sleeve as his DAMN. tour rolled into Detroit last night. During his sold-out show at The Palace of Auburn Hills, K.Dot welcomed his good friend and collaborator J. Cole on stage to an expectedly rapturous reception. Cole, whose currently travelling the country on his own 4 Your Eyez Only tour, performed fan favorites like “Deja Vu,” “No Role Models” and “A Tale of 2 Citiez.”

Next stop on Kendrick’s DAMN. tour is tonight in Chicago, while Cole’s 4 Your Eyez Only tour will be taking over Toronto tomorrow night.

Usher has been in the news over the past week, making headlines as various women have come forward alleging the pop superstar exposed them to herpes. The singer is currently facing a $20 million lawsuit from one of the victims, after she learned the Grammy Award-winning entertainer gave her the sexually transmitted disease.

Stepping away from the controversy, Usher was the latest guest to appear on James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke series. Riding around Hollywood in an SUV, the duo run through some of Usher’s biggest like “Yeah!,” “Burn,” “Caught Up,” “I Don’t Mind,” and “OMG!.” In between the jam session, the pair help move a broken down car and stop by Usher’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star, to give it a nice touch up.

LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS -- Episode 556 -- Pictured: Musical guest Aminé performs on July 24, 2017 -- (Photo by: Lloyd Bishop/NBC)

After making his network television debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon earlier this year, XXL Freshman Aminé returned to late night TV last night to perform his latest single. Dressed appropriately in a baby blue tuxedo and backed by a barbershop quartet, the Portland rapper crashed Late Night With Seth Meyers and delivered a wedding-themed rendition of “Wedding Crashers.” Offset, who showed up halfway though, bucked the dress code in a massive way, but we’ll give him a pass.

“Wedding Crashers” will appear on Aminé’s upcoming debut album Good For You, dropping July 28.

Tyler then hit the Soul Train-style stage to perform his funky single “911” with a little help from The Internet’s Steve Lacy, who appears on the song along with Frank Ocean and Anna of the North.

During his set, the Grammy Award-winning singer performed a cover of Steve Monite’s 1984 disco jam “Only You.” Ocean also gave a live rendition of The Jackson 5’s “Never Can Say Goodbye,” where Brad Pitt joined him on stage, serenading the acclaimed actor who Frank wore a t-shirt of at Manchester’s Parklife Festival back in June.

I find this young man so special,” said Brad Pitt in a candid interview with GQ, speaking on his love for Frank Ocean. “Talk about getting to the raw truth. He’s painfully honest. He’s very, very special. I can’t find a bad one [song].”
