Justin Timberlake concluded his week long stint on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in epic fashion, first teaming with Fallon for a new installment of the History of Rap, before performing a medley of his own hits.
In this particular history lesson, the pair’s fourth to date, they covered “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” by Beastie Boys, “Scenario” by A Tribe Called Quest, “Gin and Juice” by Snoop Dogg, “Fight the Power” by Public Enemy, “Izzo (H.O.V.A.)” by Jay-Z, and “Lose Yourself” by Eminem, among others. You can find the full setlist below.
Later, Timberlake teamed with his massive band for performances of past favorites from his solo catalog, specifically “Like I Love You”, “My Love”, “Cry Me a River” (which Timberlake briefly reworked to include the lyrics to “Niggas in Paris”), and “SeÃ±orita”.
Replay both performances below.
ICYMI: On Monday night he debuted Pusher Love Girl, on Tuesday night he sang Mirrors and a ragtime version of SexyBack, and Wednesday night he dropped Let the Groove Get In and spoofed Michael McDonald, and on Thursday night he unveiled “Strawberry Bubblegum”.
