“Count Your Blessings” (Live On Letterman) (Video)


    You’d think that Nas & Damian Marley would follow up the multiple performances of “As We Enter” on Carson Daly, Leno, Kimmel and Leno with a repeat of the trick on David Letterman’s show—but it was not to be so. The duo finally broke with protocol and produced this version of “Count Your Blessings” for Dave last night (Aug. 2).


    The pairing were fresh from a show on the Williamsburg Waterfront, and this performance broadly fits into all those others we’ve seen—two performers clearly enjoying promoting the superlative Distant Relatives, backed by a tight band and with a random element in their flag waving friend. Really, you couldn’t ask for much more.
