Watch Lykke Li Cover Drake In London

After rehearsing on Instagram, the Swedish singer performed the song in full last night.

Last week, one-time FADER cover star Lykke Li posted a series of Instagram videos of her and her band practicing a stripped-down rendition of Drake's mid-tempo mega-hit "Hold On We're Going Home." Last night, in the West End on London, the Swedish songwriter performed the cover for the audience at her Apollo Theater show. Her newest album, I Never Learn, is stuffed with weepy, arena-sized dream-pop, so it makes sense that she chose to put her stamp on Nothing Was The Same's most sentimental, elementally melodic tune. Watch the full performance in the fan-shot clip above, scroll through the original Instagram posts below, and then check out our FADER TV interview with Lykke Li from earlier this year.
