Watch Banks Make Her Television Debut on ‘Kimmel’
Not only did Young Thug make his TV debut last night (August 7), thanks to T.I., but Banks also scored her first television gig, despite conquering the blog demo over the past year-plus. The Los Angeles singer performed a pair of tracks from her forthcoming debut Goddess on Jimmy Kimmel Live's outdoor stage: latest single "Beggin for Thread" and her breakout (and stolen) hit "Waiting Game."
Draped in all-black, she struck a gracefully gloomy presence, swaying to the beat and doing some witchy woman jazz hands for the more upbeat "Beggin." Stick around for the whole thing, because at the 3:15 mark she completely digs in her heels and belts it out.
She toned things down on the sultry "Waiting Game," but the uncharacteristically turnt TV audience was no less into it. Side note: we kinda want to cop that BANKS New Era her drummer was rocking.
Check out "Beggin for Thread" up top, and "Waiting Game" below.
Goddess is out September 9 on Harvest Records.
