Performing his ‘Flower Boy’ single, “911 / Mr. Lonely” for the first time, Tyler, The Creator turned into Don Cornelius and made “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” look like an episode of the ’70’s show, “Soul Train.”
Joined on stage with Steve Lacy, Tyler sang the lyrics to the song and has the entire crowd vibing out and dancing slow. Following the performance, Tyler tweeted, ““i sang on live tv and it sounded great. my voice control from chur bum to this album has gotten so much better.”

During the interview portion of the show, Tyler told Colbert that ‘Flower Boy’ had less of him rapping then his previous albums, because he “just wanted to produce and have people sing.”
