Delivering a captivating funk-infused jam session, Lenny Kravitz took over the stage at The Late Late Show on Thursday night (Oct. 25) for a performance of his groovy track “Low.”
Showing that he hasn’t lost an inch of drive in his delivery, the 54-year-old flexed his signature sensual demeanor and always fresh style, putting his voice front and center over the funky bassline and midnight groove. Backed up by a full band, Kravitz’s silky voice ascended in the midst of steady drums and jangly guitar riffs.
With his notorious infectious energy, he hypnotized the crowd with the sultry lyrics “Don’t lift me up/ To turn me down/ I just want a lover/ Baby, stay with me on the floor.” Whipping his dreadlocks around, the vocal powerhouse soared along with the track’s soulful sonic layers.
Before his set, Kravitz joined host James Corden and the other night’s special guests for a trip down memory lane. Touching on the singer’s experience as a Beverly Hills High alum, Corden asked what kind of student was young Lenny Kravitz. “I did what I had to do to graduate,” he replied laughing of his time at the school he attended with Guns ‘N Roses guitarist Slash and other celeb kids.
The star then shared how he was already extremely involved with music back then, always taking at least four music classes. In fact, he even had one history teacher who would let him cut class to practice guitar. “I learned a lot but I already knew what I wanted to do, so I was really involved.”
