Willow Performs A Career-Spanning Setlist In New Tiny Desk Concert

The NPR Tiny Desk has served as a unqiue stage for many rappers and singers to show off their skills. Artists like Tyler, The Creator, Mac Miller, and Anderson .Paak have all made memorable appearances behind the titular desk. There’s been an extremely impressive roster of bands and artists to play behind the desk over the years. During the COVID-19 pandemic they even creatively shifted the series to memorable at-home additions from artists like Young Thug and Clipping. Now, R&B darling Willow is the latest to take the iconic stage.

For her performance she dipped back into her discography and delivered a career-spanning set. She played a trio of songs set to land on her upcoming album including “Symptom Of Life,” “Run,” and “Big Feelings.” In between, she dipped into her 2022 album COPINGMECHANISM for the song “Split.” After that she went all the way back to her 2015 debut album ARDIPITHECUS for a special performance of the fan-favorite “Wait A Minute.” She did it all with the help of a lively four piece band. The video is already racking up hundreds of thousands of views and is currently trending on YouTube.
