"[It] will be a place where I can give fans weekly glimpses into all the different facets of the tour -- not just the work of it, but also the fun!"

One of the things I have always loved to do is keep the spirit of old school R&B fresh and alive for new generations of listeners. I think this explains my longstanding tradition of creating interesting and sometimes stylistically off the beaten path re-imaginings of songs by legendary soul artists. It had been a few years since I had a Top 10 radio hit with Al Green's "Let's Stay Together," and I thought it would be appropriate to continue in this vein to launch this entire project with the single "Go Home." It's a favorite Stevie Wonder song from "In Square Circle" that's been a staple of my live performances for years. I cut the basic tracks at Capitol Studio B in Hollywood with some of my favorite cats…Vinnie Colaiuta (Drums), Freddie Washington (bass), Tony Maiden (guitar), & Paul Jackson, Jr. (guitar). We had a lot of fun tracking it and veteran engineer Steve Sykes got great sounds on us and captured the whole vibe live! I also had a lot of fun working with my old friend and keyboard brother, Greg Phillinganes, who played in Stevie's bands in the 70's and 80's. The whole time we were working on this we all enjoyed telling stories and reminiscing over the many decades of recording & touring together and during the Hey-day of music here in LA.
I loved 'Go Home' from the first time I heard it, and began performing it live as an instrumental at my gigs at the Baked Potato. It's got a great bassline, keyboard hook and chordal structure, and I thought it would fit in perfectly with my desire to incorporate a Tower of Power style horn sound. I've known the TOP guys for years, and wanted to create a track that paid homage to them. It was so fun to work with them again and we customized some of the horn parts while we were in the studio recording them You can't ask for more than having one of the original TOP guys, "Doc" Kupka, in the horn section! I had never had the chance to record "Go Home" in the studio, and I thought this would be the ideal time. To me, this track was the perfect way to launch this whole ambitious project.

Clad in a red vinyl jumpsuit, Cabello aced some sexy, Spanish choreography with two backup dancers against a yellow backdrop. In the green room, Camila couldn't contain her excitement about Madonna, who also appeared on last night's show.
Cabello was so honored to share an episode with the Queen of Pop that she whipped out a guitar and rewrote some lyrics to "Havana." "Madonna, na na na--she's on the show tonight. Madonna, na na na--she is a living legend," she sang. Camila shared the impromptu acoustic version (which served as a warm-up and a tribute) on Twitter. Watch the clips from the showhere.
In an interview with Colbert before his performance, Chance told the late night host that he wrote the untitled track just two days before. "I was going to do 'Grown A– Kid' which is an unreleased song from Coloring Book and I called you guys on Saturday and said, 'I can't do 'Grown A– Kid' anymore for reasons I don't want to talk about,'" he explained. "We had to come up with a song in a matter of days and I wanted to do something fresh. I've been in the studio a lot lately. I premiered 'Angels' here so I was like, 'Why not do a new song here for you guys tonight?'"
The song addresses the challenges of fame and the difficulties of being a father and a family man once you're recognized everywhere you go. "I really need a break, could really use a nap/ My daughter barely recognizes me when I lose the hat/ You go so far, you hit a point where you can't Uber back," he rapped.
"It ain't really fun to hang out with me no more/ We can't go to River East to hang at the beach no more. . . I miss my mom, I miss my time, I miss my prime in high school," he continued. Watch the performance and interviewhere.

Niall's mug was the topic of the evening. Shortly afterward, Justin shared a super zoomed-in selfie of his own face, followed by zoomed in version of Niall's Flicker album cover. Bieber's followers were in on the joke and appreciated two famous friends clowning on each other.
Flicker is Horan's debut studio album and it drops October 20. So far, fans have heard the album tracks "Slow Hands," "This Town" and "Too Much to Ask." Earlier this month, Horan told Billboard that Bieber told him never to be afraid to make changes to an album.
'[Justin] thought he was done [with Purpose] and then got 'Love Yourself' at the last minute," Horan said. "I thought my album was finished, and then I went on a bit of a run 'cause I was writin' crap stuff up until then."
