Lorde covers Kanye West’s “Hold My Liquor” [Video]


You might recognize Lorde and her awesomely addicting song titled “Royals,” which actually drove her to become the first female lead to reach the top 10 in the Billboard Alternative Rock Chart since 1997. If you don’t, then click here to listen to “Royals.” The song is a complete hit. Even The Weeknd took a stab at remixing the track, just saying.

This post isn’t about “Royals,” though. While out in her native New Zealand performing on the iHeart Radio Festival stage, Lorde decided to try something different and cover Kanye West‘s Yeezus track, “Hold My Liquor.” The up-and-coming songstress covered not only Kanye West’s part but Justin Vernon and Chief Keef‘s parts as well. And of course, she rocked it.

I actually can picture a Lorde and Kanye West musical collaboration. The two would compliment each other well. Listen to the cover below.
