Charlotte Gainsbourg borrowed a tune from Kanye West's catalog during a recent performance on French television program Taratata. The British-French singer delivered a sleepy, stripped performance of Ye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy hit "Runaway." Taking the songs signature piano melody intro, she proceeded to deliver the lyrics in a serene whisper as a guitar softly strummed in the background. Gainsbourg is coming off of the release of her fifth album Rest which dropped in November.
