Beach Bunny stopped by The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon last night (May 1) to perform their viral single ‘Cloud 9’.
Performing in front of a backdrop of suspended cotton clouds, the Chicago band delivered a stunning rendition of their 2020 track to promote their upcoming North American tour.
The track, which appears on the band’s 2020 debut album ‘Honeymoon’, recently went viral, scoring more than 2million streams a day on Spotify and featuring in the platform’s Global Viral 50 chart for five consecutive weeks. It has also had more than 78million streams on TikTok and 1.3million creations.
You can watch the band’s Fallon performance below.
The new version of the song not only features Tegan And Sara but has also been updated to include gender-neutral and feminine pronouns in its lyrics.
In a press release, Tegan And Sara said: “We’re massive fans of Beach Bunny, and when we heard ‘Cloud 9’ for the first time fell in love with the brilliant lyrics and addictive melody. We love that Lili was up to let us experiment with changing the pronoun in the chorus to she.
“The efforts made to make the song relatable to everyone isn’t just about inclusivity, we think it’s a great indication of the flexibility and creative spirit of the band at its core!”
