The Morning After: Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, "She Ain't a Child No More" on Jay Leno



Check in with us daily to see Suite903 artists take over TV. Today we’re watching Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings perform “She Ain't a Child No More” on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

The tell-tale signs of growing up aren't always clear at first sight. Let Sharon Jones paint the picture: Little girl she had to grow up quick, she ain't a child no more/her heart's soft but her skin got thick, she ain't a child no more, that's just part of the growing pains she's voicing on "She Ain't a Child No More." Puberty ain't all she wrote just for females. Had she tackled men for her fourth album's single performed on Leno, Sharon's post-show chat with Tom Cruise (at the close of the show) would have probably turned into an uncomfortable remake of his own risky adolescence.
