Octavian covers Jai Paul for Radio 1

Rising U.K. rapper Octavian was a guest on BBC Radio 1 on Tuesday night. During his three-song set at London's soon-to-close Maida Vale studios Octavian spoke about his recent stint modelling for Virgil Abloh at Paris Fashion Week and delivered a cover of Jai Paul's "Jasmine." His take on the mercurial artist's song remained pretty faithful to the original, with Octavian telling host Annie Mac it is his "favorite song in the world." Octavian added that he's prepping a new mixtape titled Revenge. As for Jai Paul? Honestly, who knows?
