Watch Pa Salieu Perform “Frontline” on Fallon
British Gambian rapper Pa Salieu appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Thursday (January 21), performing “Frontline” in his U.S. TV debut. He conducted the intense performance in a starkly lit set featuring a mocked-up market stall, a weapon-wielding dancer engulfed by bright red frills, and lots of confused pit bulls. Watch it happen below.
Pa Salieu dropped his debut mixtape Send Them to Coventry in November, less than a year after releasing “Frontline” as his debut single. The track appeared on the record alongside singles “Block Boy,” “Betty,” and “B***K.”
