Jessie Ware covers Labrinth, Chaka Khan at Radio 1's Live Lounge

Posted on

BBC’s Radio 1 Live Lounge is one of Britain’s premier spots for pop covers. Following up Fall Out Boy’s version of “Uptown Funk” from earlier this week was Jessie Ware, who stopped by the British radio station on Thursday to take on U.K. electronic musician Labrinth’s “Jealous.” Ware, who has previously covered Rihanna in the Live Lounge, energizes Labrinth’s mellow original, even mixing it up with a bit of Chaka Khan’s “Through the Fire” (which many will recognize as the sample in Kanye’s classic “Through the Wire”).

Every Live Lounge cover is available on their YouTube channel.
