Luke Bryan made an appearance on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Sunday (Oct. 27) for the television debut of his brand new single, “What She Wants Tonight.”

The Georgia native took the stage to perform the sultry song, which he co-wrote alongside Ross Copperman, Hillary Lindsey and Jon Nite, just days after its release.

“It just talks about this girl. She owns the night, right? She gets what she wants and I get to be what she wants tonight,” the superstar explained to Country Now and other media prior to the song’s release. “It’s funny, I feel like it’s something girls will love, hearing that sentiment. I’m really excited about it.”

While visiting the popular late-night show, Bryan sat down with Fallon to chat about performing at the Super Bowl and the upcoming season of American Idol.

Check out his performance below.

Bryan’s Tonight Show appearance came just after he performed at Detroit’s Ford Field where he wrapped his Sunset Repeat Tour with a capacity crowd. During the show, the four-time Entertainer of the Year was surprised with a plaque commemorating his continued success in the country music format with more RIAA certified digital singles than any other country artist (54 million digital singles, 12.5 million albums and seven billion streams).

“This year on the road has been one of the best of my career,” Bryan shared in a statement. “Having three of my closest friends join me on stage each night will be hard to beat. I am so proud of them and the careers they continue to build. When they surprised me onstage Friday night with that plaque I was blown away.  My fans continue to make this journey more than I could ever imagine. I am so thankful.”

“What She Wants Tonight” follows Bryan’s 23rd No.1 single, “Knockin’ Boots,” and is the second single from his upcoming studio album.
