Lorde Covers Kanye West’s “Hold My Liquor”


Lorde may be new to the music scene internationally, but from the looks of the footage you’re about to see it seems she’s already well versed in the art of putting on a truly entertaining show.

Taking the stage in her hometown in New Zealand for a headlining performance recently, Lorde debuted a live cover of Kanye West‘s Yeezus standout, “Hold My Liquor.” The song originally features guest appearances from Chief Keef and Bon Iver mastermind Justin Vernon, but the young songstress faces the challenge of three vocals parts with confidence and skill to spare and delivers a stirring rendition that is sure to set your night off right. And before you ask, yes, she even raps. You can view the performance below.

Tennis Court, the latest release from Lorde, is available now with her debut full-length, Pure Heroine, on the way. .
