Just one day after Julia Michaels brought out James Bay for a performance of their intimate collaboration, "Peer Pressure," the duo teamed up once more on Tuesday (April 16) for a rendition of the tune on Ellen.

The duo looked into each other's eyes as they mused the romantic lyrics telling the tale of giving into love. “I think it can be easy to stay very guarded in life, and not let anybody in, past your personal armor," Bay previously said of the collab in a statement. "These guards we all put up every day for different reasons. In writing ‘Peer Pressure’ Julia and I wanted to talk about how, when the right person comes along, they can break through any armor and with love, get straight to you. It’s about that person who, no matter how much of a guard you hold up, finds their way through to you.”

“Peer Pressure” is the first single from the British crooner since his 2018 album, Electric Light. Watch the full Ellen performance below.
