Back in November, Lizzo, the rapper/singer/songwriter/flutist born Melissa Jefferson, posed a jazz flute battle to the mustachioed newsman. He accepted with a few improvised flourishes in promotion of his iHeartRadio podcast.

It definitely also features her walking over tables, popping underneath bathroom stalls for a quick melodic run, slurping up a cocktail with Sasha Flute (the name of her instrument), and shooting out fire on the other end.
