Tyler, the Creator stopped by the NPR "Tiny Desk" recording studio--the latest artist to perform for the ongoing series and the first to perform in the evening.
The rapper, whose album Flower Boy dropped this year, sang "Boredom," "See You Again," and "Glitter," accompanied by two incredible backup singers and a full band. As "Tiny Desk" usually takes place during the day, Tyler also brought his own special lighting, bathing his stage in cool pinks and blues.
"See You Again" was actually originally written by Tyler for Zayn, but, as the rapper explained on Twitter earlier this year, he ended up keeping the song due to scheduling conflicts:
\u201cfun fact: i wrote 'see you again' for zayn but that bitch flaked on studio time twice, so i kept the ref for myself, worked out actually\u201d
