R&B polymath Janelle Monae stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Monday night (April 1) to perform a cover of Jimi Hendrix‘s “Little Wing” with The Roots. It’s arguably Jimi’s most beautiful song, and Janelle certainly did it justice with her fire and ice take (she was the ice, guitarist Kellindo Parker was the fire). Watch the scorching performance up top.

Hendrix’s latest posthumous album, People, Hell & Angels, is out now, and you can see Janelle at Coachella April 13 & 20.
