Lana Del Rey’s recently made an appearance on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge and treated us with a surprising cover of Ariana Grande’s big hit “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored.”
Del Rey, who came to promote her newest album Norman F**ng Rockwell, also performed a cover of Sublime’s “Doin’ Time” as part of the set.
Although you would think that Del Rey is Grande’s biggest fan, it turns out that covering “Sweetener” singer wasn’t entirely her idea.
“I thought about sending her a screenshot of a list of preferred covers I was sent, which had about seven of her songs on it, so she wouldn’t just think I was a mega-fan,” said Del Rey before getting into the song. Hear her cover below.
This isn’t the first time, however, that we hear Del Rey performing “Doin’ Time.” She enjoyed covering this song so much in the past that she also enlisted it as part of her latest record.
With Norman F**ing Rockwell, Lana Del Rey topped the UK, Scottish, and Argentinian charts while the album peaked at No.3 on the US Billboard 200. It was also received very well by the critics, who already consider it her finest work to date.
