Seth Rogen Lip Syncs Drake’s “Hotline Bling” on ‘The Tonight Show’ With Jimmy Fallon
Jimmy Fallon brought back the hilarious Lip Sync Battle segment to his show on Friday night (Aug. 5), this time partnering up with actor Seth Rogen.
Fallon kicked the competition off with Kent Jones’ “Don’t Mind” and then turned it up a notch on Onyx’s “Slam.” Rogen, however, was the star, first by getting a slight advantage with Black Thought and crew with a performance of The Roots’ “Mellow My Man.” He pulled out all the stops for his next song, Drake's "Hotline Bling," when he rapped the lyrics, complete with grey turtle neck and Aubrey dance moves.
The previous Lip Synce Battle segment pitted Will Ferrell against Kevin Hart.
This isn't the first time Drake's hit single has been performed by someone other than Drizzy on The Tonight Show. Back in January, Fallon performed the hit single as Bob Dylan in a hilarious rendition. In May, Drake was a guest on the show and played the innovative new sport faceketball.
In case you didn't know, Rogen is a huge hip-hop fan. He made a cameo in a Beastie Boys music video a few years back and famously parodied with Kanye West’s “Bound 2″ video with James Franco. Rogen even wanted to become Waka Flocka Flame’s personal blunt roller when the position was open. Last November, he named his favorite rap albums on social media as Wu-Tang Clan’s Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), A Tribe Called Quest’s Midnight Marauders and The Roots’ Do You Want More?!!!?.
The Tonight Show has become the go-to spot for rappers as dozens of MC have appeared and performed on the talk show in the past.
