Watch This: Pretty Lights and Talib Kweli perform ‘Around the Block’ on Conan

Last night on Conan O’Brien, Pretty Lights was joined by hip hop visionary Talib Kweli and back up vocalists to perform “Around The Block,” off of his latest albumĀ A Color Map of the Sun. We’ve already seen Zedd bridge gaps with a slew of “Clarity” performances on the late night talk show circuit, but Derek Vincent Smith’s prime time debut on Conan O’Brien is a milestone for the bassier side of dance music. Despite a lack of Top 40 radio recognition, Smith has managed to land himself prime time airplay and exposed Pretty Lights Music to an entirely new audience.
