Watch Lorde Groove Through Jeremih & YG's 'Don't Tell 'Em'
"You could do hip-hop. You could rap."
That's the feedback Lorde got for her cover of Jeremih and YG's "Don't Tell 'Em" for BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge. Ever since Lorde introduced herself by criticizing much of hip-hop culture with "Royals," she's slyly showed her fandom, and this swaggering cover keeps the momentum going. She doesn't even change "Chicago" to "Auckland" in the lyrics!
Check out the video below, as Lorde "flip(s) the dynamic" of the R&B hit and, as she says, makes the power her own.
And that's not all: She also performed her Hunger Games track "Yellow Flicker Beat."
