Last week, Hozier and Mavis Staples’ “Nina Cried Power” reached #1 at Triple A radio.

To generate further momentum and awareness for the track, the artists bring the song to “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

Hozier and Staples perform the song during Wednesday’s edition of the popular late-night talk show. The number closes an episode that also features Greg Kinnear and Paul Dano.

Taped earlier in the day, the broadcast additionally includes “Goodnight News” and “Freestylin With The Roots” bits.
