Watch Big Sean Debut 'Bounce Back' on 'Fallon'

Big Sean went hard on Halloween, first shooting out the open-book banger "No More Interviews," then returning to dunk on us with "Bounce Back." But he didn't just drop that one on Soundcloud and all the other services—he performed it on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in a pouched-out, banana-yellow sweatshirt and matching pants. You get the feeling Kanye would approve.

Watch the live "Bounce Back" debut above. The track is toplined by producers Hitmaka and Smash David with additional production by Metro Boomin and Amaire Johnson. It's got Big Sean at his most confident, seemingly referencing that time Kendrick Lamar robbed his own song from him: "N---a, I’m takin' back control / The underdog just turned into the wolf / And the hunger steady grows."

After Dark Sky Paradise got carried by big-tent anthems like "Blessings," "IDFWU" and "One Man Can Change the World," Sean Don's returning with serious rappity-rap bars. Enjoy:

"N---a, how dare you stand before me
And not respect my authority
If you fuck with my glory
I'ma drop the L and get gory
I done did everything expect worry
Hella drama, my life story
Faith of a mustard seed, I kept growing
I knew that this life was meant for me"

Hear the studio version next:

Fallon holding up a vinyl LP blaring "TAKE NO L's" had us thinking a new album was about to get announced, too, but no such luck yet. Apparently it's just cover art...for a song not called that.
