“The 22nd of loneliness/ And we’ve been through so many things/ I love my man with all honesty/ But I know he’s cheating on me/ I look him in his eyes/ But all he tells me is lies to keep me near/ I’ll never leave him down, though I might mess around/ It’s only ’cause I need some affection/ Oh, so I creep, yeah, I just keep it on the down low/ With nobody else supposed to know,” she warbles, a noticeable twang in her voice, as Ora provides fun backing ad libs.
Elsewhere in the episode, Normani teamed up with Taraji P. Henson in a showdown against the “How to Be Lonely” singer and her real-life boyfriend, filmmake Taika Waititi, in a game of “Slay It Don’t Spray It,” in which Ora delivered a pitch-perfect (and lyrically precise) cover of ABBA‘s “Dancing Queen” to avoid being drenched with water. (On the other team, Henson gloriously bungled Jennifer Lopez‘s “Waiting for Tonight” and suffered the soaking-wet consequences, much to host Jimmy Fallon’s delight.)
