Song of the Day: “Be The One” by Dua Lipa

Ok, I’m officially super obsessed with Dua Lipa! If you’ve read a few posts here, you’ll know I saw her at a showcase a few months back and she’s just amazing.

I picked her song “New Love” as one of my Friday Five this past week, and her song “Be The One” is my Song of the Day. I LOVE this live version from BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge.

She’s just so good!

Shawn Mendes Covers Alessia Cara’s “Here” at BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge

It feels like it was forever ago that we first heard “Stitches” by Shawn Mendes. For me, it was an instant hit and continues to be one of my favorite pop songs from the past year. Glad it’s finally topping the charts and getting the much deserved recognition.

Shawn stopped by BBC Radio 1 and did an excellent live version of the song in the iconic Live Lounge. For his obligatory cover, Shawn chose “Here” by Alessia Cara and put an interesting spin on it.

To be frank, Alessia has such a unique and defining singing style and production on the record, it took me a few listens for the cover to grow on me. I think I prefer the original, but appreciate Shawn’s take on it.

Check it out and tweet me your thoughts on Shawn’s cover!

This, on the other hand, is pure genius, and have zero shame about blasting this song in my car and singing along.

MNEK and Zara Larsson’s Live Lounge Cover of Naughty Boy’s “Runnin’ (Lose It All)

Instant fave! I love MNEK and Zara Larsson – they’re voices are amazing. I hope they do more together! Their BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge session was ace today!

And Naughty Boy‘s song, “Runnin’ (Lose It All)” is just epic. I’m actually baffled as to why it’s not a bigger hit, especially on the radio.
