Skepta covers Kanye West’s “All Of The Lights” for BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge (Audio)

Grime MC Skepta popped into the BBC Radio 1 studios for a live lounge session and delivered his version of Kanye West‘s “All Of The Lights” from the critically acclaimed My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.


Now “All Of The Lights” is my favourite track on Yeezy’s new album so I expect a lot when I hear a cover of the song…and I’m personally not feeling this cover.
It’s not actually Skepta’s fault, I actually like the way he flips the verses…
It’s the backing singers. They just don’t cut it I’m afraid.

What are your thoughts?

P.S Check out this orchestral cover of “All Of The Lights”… A.MAZ.ING!

Skepta’s album Doin It Again is out now.
