How do you rightfully pay homage to the city of Chicago while performing in The Windy City? Singing some Kanye West, of course.
When Lorde‘s Melodrama Tour stopped by Chi-Town Tuesday night (March 27), she felt it was important to shout-out its hometown boy with not one, but two Kanye covers during her 18-song set. Starting with an a cappella version of “Love Lockdown” just over halfway through her set, Lorde continued the Yeezy love with a little snippet of “Runaway,” which she cleverly mashed up with her ballad “Liability.”
“It must be nice to come from the same place as Kanye West,” the singer told the crowd, according to one fan’s tweet.
Lorde has mostly been covering Frank Ocean‘s “Solo” at each tour stop, but as she did with Ye in Chicago, she sang Prince‘s “I Would Die 4 U” in Minneapolis. And in Nebraska, Lorde opted for a Bruce Springsteen cover (likely because of his album titled Nebraska), combining “I’m On Fire” with her Pure Heroine track “400 Lux.”
