Cordae is keeping the iron hot until From a Bird's Eye View drops on Friday. The 24-year-old rapper made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday night, where he performed two new songs, "Sinister" and "Chronicles," off his upcoming album. The scaled-back performance felt intimate even though it was on television. It's the kind of show that makes you bob your head with the songs, even though one is a classic hip-hop flow and the other is a smooth R&B single sampling Destiny's Child's "Say My Name." I might just have to see him perform them live on his nationwide tour, which kicks off in February.
While appearing on the late-night show, Cordae also discussed the meaning behind the title of his second studio album. "It means to see things from outside of yourself. As human beings, we tend to all have main-character syndrome. It's to see things from a more zoomed-out lens," he explained. If these two songs are any indication of what to expect, I have high hopes for From a Bird's Eye View.
