Much like the night she debuted her first-ever single to promote her upcoming movie The High Note, Tracee Ellis Ross was pretty nervous to play our ever-popular Black Ass Game.

“Okay, I hope I can play this game!” Tracee laughed.

What we did is we recited a lyric from a song featuring singers who sung “high notes” of their own and Tracee had to guess the song and singer. From Whitney Houston to Minnie Ripperton, Tracee really didn’t have anything to be nervous about because she did the damn thing!

When we asked Tracee who’d be her ideal duet pick, she picked Rihanna, of course! Actually, let’s be real—Tracee is down to do anything with Rih, whether it’s dinner, lunch or swimming! So...do we get an invite to that party? Because we are here for that.

The High Note releases On Demand on May 29.
