In addition to headlining such an esteemed platform, this also marks Megan’s first time performing with a live band in public. She was assisted by the jazz and funk-tinged, Brooklyn-based group Phony Ppl, which consists of Elbee Thrie (vocal, percussion), Elijah Rawk (guitar), Maffyuu (drums), Aja Grant (keys), Bari Bass (bass) and Ebony Joi (vocals). Alongside some of Megan’s selects from Fever, which was released in May, the artist also treated the crowd to sounds from her 2018 Tina Snow EP, opting for a lively rendition of «Freak Nasty.»
Megan even surprised fans by debuting an unreleased track. Shortly before closing out her set, she premiered a new song called «F*****’ Around.» featuring Phony Ppl themselves. View the entire NPR set above.
