Brockhampton made their The Late Show with Stephen Colbert debut on May 26 with a captivating performance of “Don’t Shoot Up the Party.”
The track is a cut off the group’s latest album Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine. “All-American self-hatred runs deep / White boys all I see whenever I sleep / N***as think I think these thoughts on purpose / But I knew ’bout *NSYNC ’fore cash could rule me,” Kevin Abstract rapped on the song’s understated intro. Matt Champion and Joba also took on memorable verses, while the group chanted powerfully in unison on the hooks under stunning lights and visuals.
Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine was released in April, and features collaborations with artists such as JPEGMAFIA, A$AP Ferg and A$AP Rocky over its 13-track runtime. The album is a follow-up to 2019’s Ginger and is potentially Brockhampton’s penultimate record.
Brockhampton have also released music videos for cuts off Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine. The music video for “Count on Me” featured guest appearances from Lil Nas X and Dominic Fike. “Buzzcut,” on the other hand, was a collaboration with Danny Brown.
