The two artists came together at the LA awards ceremony
The ‘Beerbongs & Bentleys’ star teamed up with the California rock band as to play two of his own tracks, as well as a song from their latest album, ‘The Getaway’.
The performance began with Malone playing ‘Stay’ by himself on an acoustic guitar. The artist then moved to a tunnel connecting to another stage to begin ‘Rockstar’. By the time he reached the main stage, Red Hot Chili Peppers launched into their own ‘Dark Necessities’. Watch footage of the performance below.
The collaboration isn’t the first time Malone has teamed up with a veteran rock band at an awards ceremony. Last year, he joined Aerosmith at the MTV VMAs for a version of ‘Rockstar’ and a run through of some of the band’s classic songs.
Malone could go home with two Grammys. He is nominated for Record Of The Year for ‘Rockstar’ and Album Of The Year for ‘Beerbongs And Bentleys’.
