Wow. Has potential to be a classic performance. Honestly, the R&B direction throughout some of these songs has been giving me Frank Ocean vibes, while the end of this song totally feels like OF. And "3005" sounded very Drake-esque..album is gonna rule, So much variety.

What a strange but awesome performance. I've never seen a talk show set start with the artist sitting on the couch looking like he just rolled out of bed.

I felt that Frank Ocean in that song, too.

I had a huge feeling it was gonna end like that. Once he got up, I was like, this song is about to go off...and then it did.

honestly, i think donald is trying way too hard to be that "lazy stoner geeky misfit" character.

don't get me wrong, he's putting that vibe out with more quality than anyone else but, i'd much rather hear from the intellectual, show-biz guy that understands his place (much-like early kanye) than this character. i liked the "network standard" production of camp and to a lesser extent, the raw vibe of royalty. even on royalty, he walked the line between network tv and street hip-hop.

now it seems that he's minimized both sounds to appeal to as many misfit groups as he can. maybe i'm just reading too much into this performance since it's the only post-royalty material i've bothered to listen to but, i can't help but feel like he's compromising his talent to suit a niche audience/genre.

Thundercat on bass out of absolutely nowhere. Enjoyed that, though.
