Lil Uzi Vert On "The Tonight Show": Watch Rapper Perform "Just Wanna Rock"
Lil Uzi Vert has been doing their part to keep listeners enticed lately, frequently hinting at an upcoming collaboration with Playboi Carti. Earlier this month, a version of their "Sauce Real Hard" single surfaced online, generating plenty of buzz for what else the duo may be cooking up. Aside from that, the Philly-born rapper was also announced as a part of Pharrell's Something In The Water festival lineup, along with Lil Wayne and other famous friends.
More recently on LUV's agenda, however, was last night's (March 27) appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The eccentric artist didn't sit down to converse with the host, though they did drop by to perform 2022's "Just Wanna Rock," which has quickly become a favourite from their discography. Surrounded by a crew of talented dancers, Lil Uzi brings out impressive moves of his own while letting out the track's brief verses.

"Hit it once, no ties, how the f*ck you gon' kill my vibe? / Stand on my money, don't know my size / Pick them sides, and you better choose wisely / That's my high, one, two, three, four, throw up the five, that's my high," the fast-paced lyrics go. While there isn't much to the words, the Jersey-club-inspired "Just Wanna Rock" beat had audiences in the studio and at home grooving along with the 27-year-old's performance.
Earlier this year, ahead of the Super Bowl, DJ Drama sparked an interesting hip-hop debate by suggesting that Lil Uzi Vert's single could replace Meek Mill's "Dreams and Nightmares" as the Philadelphia Eagles' unofficial anthem. While many understood what the Generation Now founder was getting at with his comments, even the rappers themselves argued that the latter song could never be topped. "I don't think so," the "Myron" artist responded at the time. "That song like been around for a very long time, and that song is still hitting exactly the same way. I'm just gonna have to see, you know, in a couple of years or a decade or whatever." Check out a video of LUV's performance on Fallon above, and tune in later for more hip-hop news updates.
