America’s Favorite boy band; Brockhampton had their late night debut on Jimmy Fallon where they premiered Tonya. Without Ameer Vann present in the group, they appear somber and let down.
For those not aware of the Ameer situation, he was one of Brockhamptons founders and was kicked out of the group for allegations. Multiple women on Twitter claim that he is mentally abusive them and has had sexual relations with a minor.
Moreover, announcing their new project Best Years Of Our Lives, set to drop later this year. The song derives its names from figure skater, Tonya Harding. Based off I, Tonya, this song shares a similar notion of the group’s sporadic raise to stardom. Additionally, Jazmine Sullivan, Ryan Beatty, and serpentwithfeet provided untouchable backup vocals.
Brockhampton Debuts Tonya On Jimmy Fallon!
First, Bearface opens the song singing about the girl who held him down. Following, Kevin Abstract who takes the lead for the group and airing out feelings of Ameer’s lies. Joba talks about losing the person he loves due to his sudden success. Dom McLennon accepts his flawed mental and explains how that’s developed an emotional bond with the group. Merlyn Wood reflects on his parent’s guilt trips which pushed him out of home to find another with the band. Matt Champion finalized the record by showing he doesn’t matter, given only two lines.
This is the group’s fourth studio album as well as their first record deal with RCA records. What’s surprising is that they dropped their initial project titled TEAM EFFORT and then PUPPY. Possible reasons are that Ameer was heavily involved in the songs that they scrapped the idea for Best Years Of Our Lives, is my guess. Prior, the group announced their performance on Tonight With Jimmy Fallon but never said anything about a new album.
