Playboi Carti Gave an Electric Performance of "Magnolia" on 'Jimmy Kimmel'

The rising star's breakout song keeps getting bigger.

Playboi Carti's "Magnolia" single is continuously spreading and for good reason: it's infectious as hell. The young Atlanta native is having a moment. Last week he was named an XXL Freshman, and if that wasn't enough, JAY-Z then mentioned "Magnolia" as one of his favorite songs during a random Twitter spree. That song and his Lil Uzi Vert-featuring "Woke Up Like This" are both in the Billboard Hot 100, showing that he's gaining some real traction. Last night, Carti appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform "Magnolia" backed by a drummer and two keyboardists. He's having a damn good stretch right now. Watch the video above.
