2 Chainz recently made an appearance on The Ellen Show and enlisted a very special guest essential to the R&B community. The Atlanta-native took the stage with Amerie to perform his hit single, “Rule The World.”
Originally, the song features Ariana Grande, but due to scheduling differences, Amerie filled in for the pop star. The appearance is fitting considering that the track samples Amerie’s beloved 2002 single, “Why Don’t We Fall In Love.”
Amerie has slowly been making a comeback with the release of her recent projects, 4AM Mulholland and After 4AM. Although we’re sure fans are happy to see the 39-year-old artist make a comeback, she’s reluctant to the trappings of fame.
“For me, the whole reason I do this is not to be cute and sing other people’s songs. I don’t do this for the photoshoots or the parties or the red carpets—I never liked those,” she told Billboard, adding that, “all those things were the necessary evils that came with having a career in which you could create music.”
Nonetheless, Amerie shined on that stage. Watch the performance above.
