Lorde Covers Jeremih's 'Don't Tell 'Em'

  /  11.13.2014


You’ve heard Jeremih’s single “Don’t Tell ‘Em,” but never quite like this. During her visit to BBC Radio 1 “Live Lounge,” Lorde put her unique spin on the DJ Mustard-produced hit, which remains in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. The 18-year-old New Zealand singer and her band gave the club banger a dark and eery makeover, and showed off her dance moves in the studio.

Lorde explained why she chose to cover the song. “I have basically been a really big fan of this song since I first started hearing it,” she said. “I love the vocal melodies. I think they’re really smart and just consider them cool. It’s quite a saucy song and I think it would be interesting to flip the dynamic and make that power mine.”

She also performed her single “Yellow Flicker Beat” off The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack, due November 17. Lorde curated the star-studded lineup, which includes Ariana Grande, Pusha T, Q-Tip, Miguel, Tinashe, Grace Jones, and more.
