Chance the Rapper showed off his creativity when he appeared on Jimmy Fallon's new game show and performed Nelly's "Hot in Here" with a country music twist. As part of the “Musical Genre Challenge” on the show, Chance first pulled a lever that paired Nelly's song with a country-music genre. He then hopped on the mic and partnered with Fallon's band to give the audience a very interesting rendition of the hit hip-hop song.
Fallon and his audience appeared to be having the time of their lives as they danced and clapped along to the rapper's country rendition.
“Never in my life did I think that was going to work, but it did,” Fallon said after Chance completed the challenge.
According to Rolling Stone, the performance is part of Fallon’s upcoming music and comedy variety game show, That’s My Jam. The show will premiere on NBC on Jan. 3.
