Watch Obama Sing Rihanna’s “Work” On The Tonight Show

Barack and Fallon cover everything from the economy to Steph Curry.

June 10, 2016

President Obama used his final in-office Tonight Show appearance for another go 'round with Jimmy Fallon's popular segment "Slow Jam the News." The Roots put down a nice R&B groove while the President begins talking about his legacy and Fallon sporadically interjects with a deep loverman baritone to give Obama's words a naughty bent ("stimulated the economy"). Obama gets in a good Trump dig and then towards the end The Roots do a snip of Rihanna's "Work" and the Pres does a little shimmy and sings the chorus. It's pretty great.
