7:06 am
behind by elsa nbc's sam brock is there for us. sam, good morning. >> reporter: sheinelle, good morning. here in the florida keys, folks are drying out after feeling the effects of elsa less than 24 hours ago. we received more than 4 inches of rain by noon. that is about what key west averages for the entire month of july the key west airport registered 3.7 inches of rain, an all-time total for the area in a 24-hour span wind gusts, as craig was mentioning earlier, reached 70 miles per hour or higher that effectively shut down a popular spot for tourists here the streets were empty for a period of time conditions behind me have cleared up significantly, but we're still dealing with some of the residual impacts from yesterday, specifically at key west airport, where they had several flights canceled this morning, some more were delayed as folks just trying to get home as for those strong winds we saw, those have migrated north with winds being able to extend 90 miles from the center of this storm.

7:08 am
after that that will be the biggest impact. if we're going to get more live threatening weather, it would be with flash flooding and that jog to the left now is taking this path a little closer to the mid-atlantic, a little closer to new york city, long island, and also southern new england. so if you have plans, friday morning especially in this areas, we could be in for some squally type weather, heavy rain for that early-morning commute here is to warnings and watches, warnings up to south carolina and georgia. even though the storm is going to be weakening, 40, 50-mile-per-hour winds, those stronger gusts along the coastal areas will be causing issues as far as the heavy rain goes, today as the storm makes landfall, north florida, areas around the georgia border, then those flood-prone areas in southern georgia, charleston, the savanna area are always getting flooding it seems like when they get heavy rain from these events 10 million people are affect by this. that little jog saved us in tampa and st. pete friday morning, that storm could be right over the top of new york city.

series on "today" is proudly presented to you by citi >> welcome back. our next guest's newest single is setting the summer on fire. >> we are talking about tesher and derulo's jalebi, baby. already has nearly 200 million global streams it's one of the year's biggest songs from tiktok. >> they're going to treat us to an exclusive performance in just a minute, but first, good morning, how are you guys doing today? >> good, good, good morning, guys >> good to see you, too. tesher, congratulations to you you're absolutely blowing up right now. but for those watching the "today" show this morning, explain what "jalebi baby" means. >> so it's jalebi baby
8:45 am
a jalebi is a south asian sweet most often found in pakistan, india, that region it's a syrup-based -- to be honest, i think i can demonstrate right here this is a jalebi i came prepared. but it's a syrupy sweet dessert, commonly found in indian weddings and i loved it so much i made a song about it >> not to be outdone here, tesher, we have some jalebi syrup in the studio. i'm going to try a jalebi. >> how would you describe what this tastes like >> on tv, it looked like a churro, but it's not >> oh, i like that >> jason actually got the chance to make some, so -- >> jason derulo, man >> i did, i have to say, i'm a little jealous, it's early in
8:46 am
the morning and you guys are eating jalebis and i've got nothing. >> it takes like a funnel cake dipped in sugar. by the way, jason, i follow you on social. you had a busy year. i waited along for the rest of the year to see what you're having and now i can say you have a baby boy. congratulations. >> thank you thank you very much. >> how has it been >> you know, it's actually -- it's incredible. >> we lost his audio let's try to get it back tesher, this is the first time you guys have collaborated how did the collab come about? >> very organically, actually. so my song was blowing up all over tiktok and the internet and it kind of caught the ear of jason derulo, which is crazy because i was in a place where i was thinking how can i help take my song to the next level and jason was one of the guys that i actually had in mind to bring it to that next level because he
8:47 am
makes high energy records, he knows how songs can transcend through the internet, into the world and be played on the radio. so he actually came to me and said, you know, this song, it's caught my ear. i really like it and he believed in the record enough to lend his voice to it and be a part of it and take it to the next level, which you will see we did. >> i love it >> there are so many artists, tesher, who are hoping that that scenario happens to them because access to success in mainstream, you know, through jason derulo discovering your song, through utilizing his 50 million social impressions and tiktok, this is a great moment for you how do you capitalize on it? what do you plan to do in the next six months? >> man, i am just so happy that this is happening. like you said, a lot of artists dream for this opportunity so above all, i'm humbled and thankful to have the opportunity, especially for a song that is so rooted in south asian identity it's very rare that we have a
8:48 am
song that's not even entirely in english and that gets to transcend to the mainstream. that has not happened in a long, long time. for me, i'm happy this is a great moment for the culture, but also i want to take this opportunity and run with it, man. i want to keep making more music, keep entertaining people and above all, keep sharing my art with the world >> equal parts humble and smart. >> we're going to try to get jason back, but right now, what do you say we listen to it >> i want to hear it >> "jelabi baby," tesher and jason derulo, here it is ♪ oh, yeah, yeah, yeah ♪ ♪ you know i came here for the cake liquor and the money ain't the only thing i chase now ♪ ♪ see ain't the stars in the wraith ♪ ♪ soon as she got in that -- ha her face down ♪
