2 Chainz Brings Out Amerie For Soulful 'Rule The World' Performance On Ellen

'Rule The World' samples Amerie's 2002 single, 'Why Don't We Fall In Love'

2 Chainz and Ariana Grande's "Rule The World" is perfect for live performances thanks to how glitzy and luxurious it sounds. Thank 2 Chainz for his deep booming delivery and how it beautifully contrasts with Grande's feathery chorus. 2 Chainz brought the breezy number to The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday (May 29) but for this rendition, Grande couldn't make it. In her stead, Amerie performed the hook with a particularly soulful feel. It was a great homage to Amerie's 2002 song, "Why Don't We Fall In Love," which "Rule The World" samples.

Comedian Wanda Sykes gave the introduction to 2 Chainz's performance. When the stage opened up, he stood with a smiling Amerie, most famous for her 2005 hit single, "1 Thing." As the pair performed 2 Chainz's latest hit, Amerie shined with her graceful voice. Afterward, 2 Chainz took to Instagram to thank her for taking the stage with him.

"Rule The World" appears on 2 Chainz's fifth studio album, Rap Or Go To The League, that came out in March. The LP also features the previously released, "Money In The Way." Although 2 Chainz and Grande couldn't perform the track together on Ellen, the two had their first performance of the song together in March during the Sweetener World Tour.
