Khalid performs at the 2017 BET Experience at The Staples Center on June 23, 2017 in Los Angeles.

The BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge is known for its amazing cover videos, encouraging artists to cross over genres and add their own twist to else’s song. Khalid was the most recent artist to stop by the lounge and he didn’t disappoint, performing Tracy Chapman’s 1988 hit “Fast Car.”

The Grammy nominee’s smooth, characteristic vocals are heard over the equally recognizable guitar melody of the original tune, making for a nostalgic, jaw dropping combination. Listen to the cover below, as well as his performance of his smash breakout song “Location.”
