James Arthur & Rudimental Perform “Sun Comes Up” On ‘The Tonight Show’
James Arthur joined forces with Rudimental for UK summer smash “Sun Comes Up.” The breezy drum-and-bass anthem is now getting a push in the US, which means a string of TV performances. The collaborators did the double yesterday (September 19) — appearing on The Today Show and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The latter was the better of the two. It had a felt like a celebration with the sprawling band exuding good vibes, while the Brit delivered a soulful performance. He even smiled a bit.
The 29-year-old is coming off a career-reviving hit with “Say You Won’t Let Go.” James bounced back from an avalanche of bad press and a stint in rehab to top the charts around the world. He came close to repeating that feat in the US — peaking at number 11 and selling double platinum. While “Sun Comes Up” is merely a side-project, it will be interesting to see what the hitmaker does next. Before we get new music, however, James is dropping an autobiography/self-help book called Back To The Boy (due October 5). Watch him in action up top.
