D.R.A.M. brought in Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14) with a puppet-starring video for “Cute.” But last night (Feb. 13), the real D.R.A.M. performed alongside Erykah Badu on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
The two delivered an outstanding performance their collaboration “Wifi,” which appears on D.R.A.M.’s Big Baby D.R.A.M. album. The “Broccoli” singer and Badu displayed great chemistry, accentuating each other’s vocals in front a national television audience.
The late night television gig came after D.R.A.M. was unable to take home the Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Performance. D.R.A.M. previously told XXL that he was honored to even be nominated.
“I believed the nomination] was a possibility once it got to the level being worldwide,” he said. “There was speculation but I never really took it seriously because it’s so two ends the spectrum with all walks life, so who knows who’s really there to judge upon it being worthy or not, you know? The fact that enough people saw that it made it past the first snip, you know, it was like sheesh! I’m able to always have that tag on me, that I’m nominated.
