Post Malone Performs “Go Flex” on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’
Post Malone knows that there isn't time for women on the come-up, but late night performance spots? That's a different story. Justin Bieber's Purpose tour, for which Posty is the opening act, is currently on a short hiatus before swinging up to Canada for a few dates, which left the guitar slinging rapper/singer free to touch the Jimmy Kimmel Live stage Wednesday night (June 8).
The performance is pretty standard for Post, who plays his acoustic guitar in a more or less stationary position. The stage is punctuated with some back alley-looking garbage fires, with the screen behind projecting flames as well. While they were out in the L.A. sun, the imagery evokes the cover of Post's recently released mixtape August 26th, which shows the musician sounded by flames, as well as the "Go Flex" video which likewise features the city version of a campfire.
August 26th will serves as a precursor, as well as a timeline of sorts, for Post's debut album. With features from 2 Chainz, Lil Yachty and more, the mixtape shows Malone searching for his musical footing, chanting send-ups to B-list basketball players one track and covering Fleetwood Mac the next. While the mellow "Go Flex" isn't on the tape, it gives listeners an idea of the melody-driven tunes Post could potentially include on his debut. Check his Kimmel performance of "Go Flex" in the video above, while additional performances, such as one for "Oh God," surfacing online as well.
